If you are referring to handloads, My load was 4.4 grs of Titegroup under a 115 gr Zero JHP. I think though, that you may get better barrel longevity using a 147 gr load, due to the significantly lower velocities. The 115's ran about 1188 fps, whereas the 147gr could be loaded to about 950-975fps and still run the gun. Things to ponder anyway.

coming from the bullseye world I can tell you a popular 9mm load for the Beretta service pistol is 6.0 grains of Alliant Power Pistol behind the 115gr Zero or Sierra. This load is known to shoot under 1.5 inches at 50 yards. Another popular load is 4.8 grains of Vihtavouri N340. I think it's generally accepted that the biggest factor in 9mm accuracy is using a slower twist barrel from KKM, the 1/32 twist can only use the 115/124 grain bullets though. The 147 will not stabilize using the KKM so you have to pick your bullet first.

VV 330 OR 320 ARE THE BEST POWDERS. BUT UNAVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. WSF IS A GOOD POWDER ALSO AND CAN BE FOUND.

147 GR LOAD
147GR XTP IS THE BEST BULLET AT 50 YDS
4.0GR WSF WILL KEEP EVERY ROUND IN THE X RING AT 50 YDS. NEW BRASS AT 50 YDS CUTS THE GROUP IN HALF OVER RELOADED BRASS

115 GR LOADS
115 GR XTP ARE THE BEST AT 50 YDS
115 JHP SIERRA AND ZERO 115 GR CONICAL JHP ARE ABOUT EVEN AT 2ND PLACE
115 OR 121 GR HAP BULLETS ARE 3RD
5.4GR WSF

NEW BRASS AT 50YDS IS KEY. ANY BRASS FOR THE SHORT LINE IS OK. FEDERAL PRIMERS GROUP ABOUT .25" SMALLER THAN THE WINCHESTER AT 50YDS. JP
