I have used a number of brands and so far have found
the OT laser cast 122flat point to give me best accuracy.
What have you all used and like the best.?

I have nothing but good things to say about the West Coast 124 gr. plated round nose. Used thousands and found them to be very consistant as long as I did my part on the loading bench.
Take Care

I have had great results using 147grain magnus bevel based truncated bullets and WW231 powder in my browning high power.

No such thing! Its the combination of bullet and powder and rifling in barrel that makes the round accurate.

Hello. In most of my 9mm pistols, a bullet that's generally very accurate over 6.0 gr Unique is Hornady's 124 gr XTP. Best.

I have found that 4.0 grains W231 under a Origon Trail 122 Flat point provides the most accurate round in my gun.
Second would be Hardcast Enterprises 124Gr plated Over 4.3Gr w231

Its what works for me

Great topic guys!

In 9mm, do lead bullets generally have a better reputation for accuracy than jacketed? Or is shooting lead strictly a budgetary concern?

DonQatU,

What powder do you recommend with the 147 BBSWC you mentioned? Really curious because i'm about to start loading 9mm in the next while (I've been loading other calibres for some time). I'm looking for a max accuracy load.

Hello. In my experience, the tightest groups have been obtained with jacketed bullets. I've been able to get "good" groups with certain cast and plated bullet handloads, but the tightest have been with jacketed. I load both, using the cast/plated loads for defensive practice where rapid fire and shorter distances are involved. They are a bit cheaper as well. Best.
