Is there any standard for what ammo to use in breaking in a new gun? Like on a 1911 where you use 230gr. Does the M&P 9 break-in well with 115gr or do you need to use 124gr?

No "break in" required, use whatever you want.

I break mine in by using +P+ ammo (just kidding). I just try several different brands and weights just to see how they work in the gun. But as far as I know, there isn't a "break-in period" when it comes to the M&P. I could be wrong, but that's my opinion.

I didn't do a break in period for mine, although I did put around 500 rounds through it before doing any of the apex upgrades to it (wanted to be sure it was issue free before I potentially voided the warranty.)

Shoot the living daylights out of it using anything you can get your hands on and see what it likes best after about 500 rounds. None of my M&P's are (or have been) very picky. The more I shoot them, the better they seem to get.

I'd make sure to clean it and give it a good luring, but other than that you should be good to go.

Yup, cleaning optional.

I've gone well over 1,000 rds between cleaning, but usually it gets a clean up after a range day.

They do handle dirty quite well. But I've also noticed they do shoot better after cleaning.

Correct. I like mine clean, as it is my EDC, so i want to know it's in tip-top shape. Cleaning is a great way to notice things that aren't 100%

I like cleaning mine because I get to play with it some more that way ("...oh, yeah, hon, I'm going to mow soon as I get my gun cleaned up, gotta take good care of it so it doesn't rust.....").
