Smith and Wesson is sending a PPC-9 to me this week. I would like to know what bullets and powder/charge have been used to get accuracy out of this gun?

Try 4.2 Titegroup with Winchester 115 jhp. Seat 1.112 oal with slight taper crimp.

JB, thank you for your response on componants for the PPC 9. Mine arrive yesterday from the factory. The trigger pull is good with the exception of some over travel. The target that came with the gun used 124 gr. JHP Hornady XTP rounds to shoot 1/2" group @ 25 yards. Earlier comments on this list recommended using Precision Delta 147 gr. match ammo. Have you had any experience with shooting lead bullets out of this gun?

yes! I use 150 grain Meister cast bullets with 2.7 grains of AA2 powder seated 1.120 oal. Will shoot X-ring at 50 yds. Use light taper crimp.

I'm not sure about the reloading part but my PPC9 6" has performed best with 147 grain trun. bullets. It might be different for the 5".
