124gr Armscor in 9mm from my testing seems to be the softest and most accurate factory loads.

Do you know the PF by any chance?

Are regular factory loads too much for your dainty wrists? :P



I kid.

Yes.

j/k I would like softer shooting ammo though. Not because I can't handle it, just for comp.

Here are the lightest loads for 3 different bullet weights based on manufacturers data:


Federal American Eagle AE9N2 TMJ 147g 960fps 141.12pf
CCI Blazer FMJ 124 1090 135.16
CCI Blazer Brass FMJ 115 1125 129.38

I shoot USPSA Production class and I really like the 147g Lancer Ammo. It is 895fps for a PF of 131.57. I just ordered some Precision Delta ammo for comparison. According to the manufacturer is makes 989fps out of a 5" XD. I shot it at a match this weekend and I liked it. It might be a bit hotter than the Lancer Ammo but I'm afraid the Lancer may be borderline in making Minor PF and don't want to chance it at a major match. I'm trying to find a chrono so I can get some official numbers on the Lancer out of my 5" XD.

I personally prefer the heavier bullet with a 16# spring. I know several top shooters who use the 147g bullet.

Thanks for the info ZXD9. Did you use Precision's reloaded ammo or new?

I used reloaded ammo. Other than the case, it has the same ballistics as the new ammo.

Of all 147s out of a 4" XD, the WWB is the softest, lowest PF that I've found. It varied around 135-138 on a match chrono.

ZERO ammunition 9mm 147gr is quoted to go 930 fps. That's about 137 PF. I might try these also.
