    In one of the ďWilson Combat Gun GuysĒ YouTube videos, Bill Wilson mentioned something about Wilson Combat using/shooting a lot of PMC ammo because it was soft shooting and reliable. Canít remember which specific video it was...

    I didnít think blazer was supposed to be hot. Iíve never paid much attention though, I just always assumed that the cheap 115gr stuff that can be found anywhere was the weakest.

    Personally I like the Win NATO stuff for competition. Obviously itís on the opposite end of low velocity, but so far itís seemed to be pretty accurate and consistent, and most importantly it cycles my KKM comp very well. If not for the latter, Iíd probably experiment with lower velocity stuff, but thereís something to be said for practicing with hotter loads if you carry +P IMO.

    If youíre running a comp, itís certainly a good thing to have the extra gas.

    +1 on the Winchester 124gr NATO stuff. Very consistent and accurate out of all my 9mm guns.

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, what I was looking for was low recoil stuff. Velocity doesn’t mean shit to me. gaijin also said Blaser and magtech was reasonable factory fodder. I found some 147’s shooting 880 FPS that I’m going to try. A little more expensive, but not crazy like other “ match “ ammo was. If I’m impressed I’ll post results. Don’t want to give a plug to some crappy ammo mfg that doesn’t deserve it.

    Most guys are running 124s or 147s. The 115s are a bit snappy (more often used in Steel Challenge, where there is no powder floor) and the 160s are for hand loaders. You just have to see what fits your rhythm best out of your gun.

    This. I dont know yet if any of it affects scores, but the 115 is a little fast(slide action) and the 147 is slow. I recently switched to AE124 grain. In practice- i seem to be able to pick up more A hits at full speed, but I think its just what I ďlikeĒ.

    I was shooting federal champion before, but the AE is noticeably more accurate on 25yd targets.

    Dont adopt something that will limit your ability to hit 25yd heads, because they show up in matches occasionally.

    Bill told me the same five or so years ago, and I have shot tens of thousands of PMC 115 from SGAmmo. It is clean, reliable and accurate. Out of a 320 X5 is is at 130 PF, might not make minor in USPSA out of a four inch barrel, and sometimes leaves steel standing.

    It's my carry ammo. I trust my life to it.
