Best target ammo for Beretta 92 (9mm)

What’s the most accurate target 9mm ammo for Beretta 92FS? I don’t what it to be too expensive so no HP's please. FMJ's are just fine.

Mine shoots very low with the Winchester Value Pack (100 for $11) from Wal Mart. PMC FMJs never gave me a problem though.
Try different grains like 127 and 147 to see what works best. I'm experimenting now. Will let you know results.

I would buy a box of shells each of every brand and variety I was willing to pay for, hang some targets, and find out for myself and my gun. But there seem to be an awful lot of posts on these boards with the goal of avoiding actually shooting the guns. I just don't understand it.

I just want to know what ammo other people found to be accurate, so I can test it myself and see how it works for me…

I've had very good luck with the Fiocchi 115gr FMJ. There was an accuracy test done for an article some time back. They shot something like 40 different kinds of ammo from a 92 using a Ransom Rest. Fiocchi came in 3rd. The most accurate was the Federal 9BP (115gr JHP) and second was GECO 123gr FMJ.
