    Favorite fodder for your G17?

    What factory ammo does your G17 like the best? I have been hearing Blazer is a solid performer in the ones my shootin' buddies have. How about yours?

    I roll my own so I use 4.2grs of Win-231 set at 1.130" with a 124gr CJ bullet. Makes a good target load for both my 9mms.

    I've shot mostly Winchester whtie-box and Speer lawman (cleanfire). I had a couple of misfires with the first box of Speer, but not a hiccup since. I've also used Magtech, PMC, and Double Tap without issue.

    IntegraGSR, how did the loads you mentioned perform accuracy wise? Any standout performers?

    My G17 and G34 love the aluminum-cased Blazer ammo, but my G26 does show a slight accuracy preference for the Winchester White Box 100 rd bulk-packed stuff.

    The G17 and G34 will group Blazers under 3" at 25 yards, if I'm up to the challenge.

    My G17 will eat anything. It's not particular. Whatever is cheapest for practice, and right now it's WWB from Wal-E-World. I've used Federal, PMP, Magtech, Fiocchi, etc..............................

    Hey Baldy, which 124 Gr. CJ Bullet are you using? And does CJ stand for Copper jacket? Thank for your input.

    The CJ is for Copper Jacketed and I am using X-Treme Bullets out of Carson City, NV. These are the ones my local supplier has in stock. They are about $48.50 for 500rds. High little boogers but they work real well and the load I have worked up for them is very accurate in two different pistols.
