CZ 75b ammo choice

Does your CZ 75b like 115 gr. or 124 gr. ammo for accuracy?? Getting ready to put one through the paces and need a starting point. Any brand favorites or do they eat "everything"?

THANKS in advance!

Mine ate everything, but I normally fed it 124-127 grain +P.

My current P01 will eat anything, but normally gets either 124+P or 147gr HST.

I use mostly use 115 grain for practice, but I've also shot a lot of 124 grain through my 75B and PCR.

A clean and properly lubricated CZ75 will function with just about any commercially available 9mm ammo. From the controversial 84gr GECO BAT (youngsters, look it up ) to 158gr Fiocchi target and everything in between... the gun will shoot them all without so much as a recoil spring change, and shoot them well.
My current CZ75B SA has a particular fondness for 147 gr bullets at around <900 fps, frequently cutting in half those group sizes produced by other weights...which is fine by me, because these loads tend to be the softest shooting, while still making minor power factor.

There I go again... I can't help it, in over 30 years, a CZ75 has never, ever let me down, not even once. I can't say that for too many other handguns.

Neither my 75B or my P-01 is very fussy about their diets. They seem to like a 124 grain bullet ahead of 4.6 grains of W-231 for range use, and Golden Sabers for business.

Mines has eaten everything I've given it. I like Federal 115 grain for practice and any quality SD ammo for everything else.

As everyone has said -- any quality, or well-loaded ammo should be fine. Your gun may "like" one specific brand or weight better than another -- and it's up to you to find what works best in your weapon.

CZ designed the gun around the 124 gr. Sellier & Bellow hardball round.
