Does anyone use a Beretta 92 for Bullseye? If so, would you share any info on your loading data. I have never seen anything in the 9mm line that could be called "match grade".

Hello. Try a 124 gr Hornady XTP loaded over 6 gr Unique in a Fed or Win case. I use Fed SP primers. Velocity is 1245 ft/sec. This is warm for a target load, but it groups and groups very, very well out of HPs and CZs. LOA ~ 1.11"

I've also had good luck with Hornady's 124gr FMJFP loaded over 5.8 gr Unique. Don't remember the LOA.

If they still make it, Speer's 100 gr JHP over 6.5 gr Unique also groups well. LOA is 1.094" and I think the average velocity is something over 1300 ft/sec.

I apologize for not having any light loads in this caliber, but these "shoot."
