Very interesting info....I am from South Africa and use a Vektor 9mm (this is he SA copy of the Beretta ).....have been using 135gr lead bullets....my 50m scores are not for publication...
from the earlier comments can I assum that 115 gr bullets are better for 50m shooting...
words of wisdom would be appreciated

Depending on the twist rate of the bbl. may not like the 135 grain pill. My understanding from a lot of shooters the 1:32 twist is the ideal bbl for the 115 JHP bullets, if you can get the bbl for your gun. Might want to try 147 grain and 124 grain boolits too. You "Possibly" have a 1:15 twist 8 groove bbl that would more than likely like the heavier boolit. This being a copy of the Beretta and designed as a service type gun is not a competition gun unless some modifications done. KKM use to make a 1:32 twist bbl. for the Beretta 92(should work), but availability is hard. Quite a bit of custom work by David Sams of the AMU turned the Berettas into high quality competiton guns for the army. Depending on what you are looking for and how much time and money you want to invest, and how hard it is to obtain guns your neck of the woods, might consider a 1911 style pistol.
Try some heavier weight boolits to begin with.
Try some jacketed or plated boolits too. Experiment.
Do you handload or get store bought ammo?
Hope this helps a little.

What is everyone using for 9mm ppc loads ?
Changed my mind.

Dropped my 115 load to 5 GR wtf.

But, still find my 3.8 GR clay dot load works well indoors.

I have not had a chance to try it. Need to get some 124 grain boolits.
