I am trying to improve my shooting and have come to the point that bullet weight makes a difference. I started with five brands of ammo in 9mm and systematically shot four weights from 115 grains to 147. For all brands, 147 grains with my Kimber Aegis was the best choice for me. I then narrowed things down to only 147grains and and added a subsonic round. This Atlanta Arms round gave me three rounds in a 1/2"bullseye standing, at 24 feet. I have ordered two other 147 grain loads from Atlanta to compare their performance and will add the second place round (less expensive) , American Eagle, to my final test--and then just settle in and hope to win bragging rights at the range.

So I got the Bart-Sto barrel for my Sig 226. It has a 1:16 twist and doesn't group well. The factory 1:10 twist groups way nice and is soft shooting. The Elite ammo with hp doesn't group at all. But way soft shooting. The best groups are with the 124 grn Atlanta Ammo over the 147 grn in my gun. Tested 15 brands and weights and the 147 Atlanta is the best for 147 grn ammo. Will buy more

Been testing all sorts of ammo including match from Atlanta and other Factories. This is the best combination of soft shooting and group size. Using a Sig factory barrel and will test same thru a Bar-Sto barrel I just got. Twist rates are way different so that will be the test for sure. This in Elite is good but a bit snappier and groups just na wee bit larger

Shot this and love the soft shooting for sure. Groups size is not better and almost anything else. I have a a 1:10 barrel so maybe a 1:16 would be better. Trying to make this work as the recoil sets it apart from the rest. Ordered a Bar-Sto barrel and will try it again. did order more to test

Atlanta Arms is the best. This is my match ammo, and when it was on sale for Merica day, I didn't have a choice, I had to buy another case!
Good quality, dependable ammo

This is the perfect round for IDPA competition. Even though I handload my rounds, I don't want to go to a match and experience ammo issues, FTF, etc. That is why, if I'm going to a competition, I'm taking Atlanta Arms with me.
Perfect at GA USPSA

Last minute decision to start shooting USPSA again...Needed some 9mm to run in a CZ. This ammo ran flawlessly with a chrony of 129. Excellent stuff!

this round has been my vp9 favorite...impacts the steel with much more authority than any 115s and grouped 15 round in a 2" hole @ 20 yards
First time shooting competition grade ammo in a competition
Posted by Victor on Feb 22nd 2016
I am new to competition shooting (and completely obsessed). Running this 147 grain match grade ammo was a dream this past weekend at my local IDPA match. I ordered 5 boxes to "see how I liked the ammo"... I will be ordering cases from here on out.
