Unicorn: Looking for best out of box 9mm for 50 yards

Post by w4ti on 12/28/2016, 10:59 pm

Hi All,

I've been playing with a 9mm and wondering what sorts of brands of "store bought" ammo anyone may be using for long line loads? Lots of threads about the 38 and 45, but not so many about factory 9mm- does everyone just use it for service pistol and move on?

Thanks!
Chase

Not exactly "store" bought, but Atlanta Arms

Atlanta Arms is outstanding. 

I've had good luck with Neil's 9mm match ammo (http://www.nsksales.com/)

If I were you, I'd also try Zero ammo. I've had good luck with other calibers from them (http://rozedist.com/)

Look along the line at Perry when the military teams (and other top shooters) are playing P100 & NTI. Atlanta Arms boxes as far as the eye can see. That kinda settled it for me.

A strong clue that someone else has spent time doing the research for us!!

It sure would seem so! Wonder what magic they have settled on, and if it can be replicated outside of a $20 box of shells?! Wonder if it is the Marine Load of 9MM- 4.8 gr. VV330 in some case with a primer and 115 gr. hollow point? Or maybe something altogether different? Gosh, I think I may actually have to go shoot more to find out. Such a bummer to go spend time, shooting like that.  Smile

Good news is they are down the road, so I can go pick up a couple boxes without having to pay shipping... but then again, driving to Conyers from Atlanta actually may be worth the UPS charge!

Thanks,
Chase

Good luck on finding any VV330, I've been looking for 2 years.

115gr Hornady XTP or HAP
5.4gr of WSF 
5.0gr of VV340

Right at 1,100FPS groups great!  This is with a 1-32 KKM barrel.
