SA Elite Range Officer 9mm Ammo Test

Recommended Posts

I got a new SA Elite Range Officer 9mm a couple of weeks ago. Before I did any testing, I tightened the bushing to slide fit, and did a 3# trigger job. Below is the results of my test. I used 9 shot groups because the magazine only held 9 and to keep things consistent with the Ransom Rest without changing mags. I used factory ammo and reloads.

Wow, lots of good data!

I had a 9mm RO for a while that didn’t like coated Bullets either. The barrel had some
rough spots, got some leading in very specific locations.

Ran some more test with Bayou 147 FP and 3 powders. I liked the 3.3 of sport pistol in my CZ Accushadow, and think I will use 2.9 gr of Tightgroup with this gun.
