One of the most consistent and accurate loads I have ever used for all my 9mm autos is -- Precision Delta 115 gr JHP - 5.6 gr. Vita Vouri 3N37 - seated to 1.100 OAL

115 gr XTP (or HAP), 6.2-6.4 Power Pistol. 1.100 OAL
5.1 Silhouette
I have heard 4.3 Power Pistol has worked for light loads in some barrels.
(I'd have to see it to believe it!)

This is cut and pasted from a Bullseye forum by a well known crossover shooter.

I'VE DONE A LOT OF RANSOM REST TESTING IN 9MM. OF COURSE AT 50YDS. SEVERAL DIFFERENT ROCK RIVER 1911'S AND A FEW BERETTA'S, BOTH TONY KID AND DAVID SAMS VERSIONS. S&W PPC9'S. SEVERAL DIFFERENT BARRELS, KKM 1-32, KART 1-16, BARSTO AND S&W 1-18(IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY)

IN ALL GUNS I'VE FOUND THE FOLLOWING IN RANK MOST ACCURATE ON TOP.
1. HORNADY 115 GR XTP
2. HORNADY 124 GR XTP
3. HORNADY 121 GR HAP
4. HORNADY 115 GR HAP
5&6 TIED SIERRA 115GR JHP , ZERO 115GR JHP CONICAL DESIGN
(WITH A SMALL AMOUNT OF EXCEPTIONS, SOME S&W PREFER THE 147 GR HORNADY XTP)

THAT BEING SAID THE DIFFERENCE FROM THE MOST ACCURATE #1 TO #6 IS ONLY ABOUT A HALF AN INCH AT 50 YDS.

POWDER CHOICE??
1. VV330 5.0GR
2. VV320 4.8GR
3. WSF 5.3GR

147 JHP WAS 4.2GR VV330, OR 4.0 WSF VERY SOFT SHOOTING, BOTH UNDER 2 INCHS AT 50YDS.
I TRIED POWER PISTOL IT WAS ACCURATE BUT IN MY RRA GUNS AT ABOUT 100RDS THE GROUP REALLY OPENED UP.
I KNOW THERE ARE OTHERS BUT I STOPPED LOOKING AFTER THESE COMBOS GAVE GREAT RESULTS.

I HAVE NEVER FOUND PLATED BULLETS TO GROUP AT 50 YDS . HARDLY HELD BLACK ON A CENTER. NOW THE TOP BULLET AND POWDER COMBO IS EASILY 1 INCH AT 50YDS.
NEW BRASS AT 50YDS WAS BEST, ROLL SIZED BRASS AT 50 YDS ADDED HALF INCH TO GROUPS, ANY HODGE PODGE BRASS ON THE SHORT LINE.
HOPE THIS HELPS. JP
