Which factory load is most accurate? Smallest groups at 25yds from a solid rest.
That will depend greatly on the exact gun being used.
Your gun might like something another hates. You just have to shoot it. Having said that, 147 grain loads are usually very accurate in most pistols.
Some of the accuracy have something to do with the shooter as well.
XDm 9mm and if the shooter does his part. what 9mm load is everyone having the best luck with for tight groups. Belive me I know all guns are different with different loads, I just want to see if I can get a concensious so I don't have to buy a few dozen 20 rnd boxes of ammo. At $17-$20 a box, I really don't want to try more than a few.
So at least, I should lean towards the heavier 124gr?
Yes Buzzsaw. Heavier might just be better in the case of a XD(M) . I shot some pretty good groups with some older Pro load +p's I had.
So far I have tried 4 loads in mine: Speer Gold Dot 124 gr.[not very good] Federal Personal Defense 105 gr[all OVER the place] Fed. Hydroshok 124 gr.[not bad] and Corbon 115 gr.[perfect 2" group]
Hope this helps
The most accurate load in the 9 and 40 is Walmart Blazer Brass. It will print dead center , reliable , clean , touching shots. For reliable carry do GoldDot 124 gr. or Win Ranger 124 . All this shoots about the same, but the Blazer are not as powerful therefore less recoil.
