Federal 9BP, 115 grain JHP.

Most accurate factory load I've shot in 9mm pistols over a 30 year time span. It is the load I test in every 9mm to determine it's level of accuracy. It's also what I load up at the range when other shooters care to wager.

No losses to date.

Surpassed by many defensive loadings since it's heyday, but I do not hesitate to carry it, even now. Keep a few cases around just because it groups so well.

YMMV.

+1 to the Federal 115 grain 9BP load. Consistently the most accurate load that I ahve found...

I've been impressed with my first (recently) 900 rounds of Fed 155 9BP, indoor 50 foot range, from CZ TS.

I just ordered another case.

During August, I hope to try it at 25 and 50 yards, outdoors range.

A really Match Grade 9mm round is the offering from ASYM...a little spendy, but very accurate




No, Daoism isn't a religion

I'd be interested in the 25 and 50 yard results.

SgtGold,

Accuracy depends on the gun, of course... Out of my Browning GP Comp, Federal 9BP will usually go around one inch or under for 5 shot groups at 25 yards. Out of my 226's 9BP will usually run between 1.5" to 2" for 5 shot groups at 25 yards. Out of either my Finnish 1923 Luger or my Interarms Mauser P-08's 5 shot groups usually run around 1.25" or so.... I haven't had a chance to try it in my new 210 target yet, but it's definitely one of the first loads that I plan on trying.

Some of my handloads are the equal of 9BP, but none of them are markedly more accurate...


Character is doing the right thing even when no one else will know...

I'm gonna have to get some of this stuff and see how it shoots out of several of my pistols.
