9mm Zero 115gr JHP-C Empty 9mm Zero 115gr JHP-C

I recently acquired some Zero 115gr JHP-C bullets as I've been told they are "the" 9mm bullet of choice for accuracy.

9mm Zero 115gr JHP-C 20230211[/url]

I have lots of Vihtavuori powder. N310, N320, N330, N340. And recommendations on a Bullseye load? (OAL and crimp info too please).

*I usually crimp to .378. I see a lot of folks crimping way tighter, down to .375 on their loads.

I've been reloading 9mm for 12 years. I've been reloading 38spl for 10yrs and 45acp for 4yrs. 9mm remains to be an elusive cartridge to me. I can get okay accuracy, but not clover leaf the same hole accuracy like 38spl or 45acp. Hence the quest for the 9mm Holy Grail continues...

I had very good results with N320 and 115gr Hornady JHP (HAP).
Zero bullets should not be much different. You can try it.
Light taper crimp.

HDY 115 HAP1.0654.2

I run 4.6 of N330 with the zero and Hormady xtp 115. I find the xtp to be slightly more accurate in my 18 twist KKM but not by much.

HERE YOU GO.

5.0gr VV330 115GR (MAY USE 4.8 VV320 2ND BEST)
4.8gr VV330 FOR THE 124GR
4.2gr VV330 FOR THE 147GR
OAL 1.142" (SAME FOR ALL 3)
CRIMP .377

NOW AS FAR AS ACCURATE BULLETS GO?

HORNADY XTP IN 9MM IS BY FAR THE BEST IN ALL WEIGHTS 115, 124 & 147.
ALL 3 ARE 1.5"OR LESS AT 50YDS

HORNADY HAP 2ND BEST.
THEY HAVE AVAILABLE A .356 DIA 121GR.  WHICH IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO COMMERCIAL LOADERS. IT ALMOST EQUALS THE XTPs.
SIERRA 115s 
1.75" TO 2.25 " AT 50YDS

ZEROs 115gr YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT 2.25" TO 2.75" AT 50YDS

You'll get a variety of suggestions based on the experience of various shooters with their gun. 

I've found the Zero 115 JHP-C to be very accurate in my Kart barrel, and perhaps a little more consistently accurate than the Hornady 115s, HAP and XTP. Also, N330 has not proven itself in my barrel to be as accurate as other powders. I test at 25 yards from a Ransom Rest.

Ultimately, you'll have to try different loads to see what your barrel likes.

4.1 - 4.4 VV N320 is best I have found in my guns. About 1.090 OAL and .377 +/- crimp with the ZERO 115 JHP-C.

Thanks. I just built up a couple of ladder loads to test out:

4.2, 4.3, 4.4, 4.5gr N330, 1.075" OAL, .377" crimp
4.6, 4.7, 4.8gr N340, 1.075" OAL, .377" crimp

Perhaps I'll load up some with N320 as well.

Is anyone using Be-86 or Power Pistol with the 115 gr JHP for Bullseye?  If so, what kind of loads do you use?

I know you'll get a variety of suggestions for loads (which is the great thing about the shooters on this forum!) which can sometimes be overwhelming but you never know what you'll find for your gun.  

I've had good luck with them using 5.7 Silhouette out of my 6" Springfield PPC model.  Also shoot a bunch of the Hornady HAP.  I don't think I shoot well enough to realize the difference but some people on here sure will.
