G 34, no mods - favorite soft shooting factory 9mm ammo?


Recommended Posts

Gen 5 G34.  The only upgrades I’ve done are Talon grips and Dawson sights.  Using for GSSF indoor this winter and entry/low level steel challenge this summer.  Assuming for the moment that I’m not changing springs, trigger, or anything else.... What is everybody’s favorite, soft-shooting factory ammo?

 

(Right now I’m shooting Blazer 124 gr. because that’s what I was able to buy, but it’s pretty hot....)

 

THANKS!!!

Energy levels:

147 Blazer 295

147Lawman 317

147 American Eagle 326

124 Blazer 327

124 Lawman 327

115 Blazer 335

115 American Eagle 356

124 American Eagle 364

115 Lawman 368

The 147 Blazer should have the least felt recoil.

The 147 Blazer I had was pretty hot, not a fan.  I would look at companies that sell reloaded ammo such as Precision Delta, NC Shooters, or Peak Performance.  If you truly want factory then Federal Syntech in 150g or even the 130g PCC stuff.

 

Not sure you can be too picky right now though, buy what you can.

I’ve had great luck out of SuperVel 147 gr. It’s factory remanufactured for competition. Right now the only way to get it is to send them primers directly. But it’s well worth it.

So so so true!  I knew that Blazer 124 wasn’t my fave, but it was what I could find!

Federal Syntech 150... you can order directly from their site.  Other sites carry it as well, but inventory has been spotty.

 

Also Speer Lawman 147 shoots ok.

I have seen too many failures to eject mild 147s from Glocks around here.  A couple of us have gone to 124s, others cheaping it out with 115s. 

If yours does, try the slowest 124 you can find.  Atlanta has a 124 at 1060 that will be a lot softer than snappy 115 gr econoball.

I have shot tens of thousands of 124gr. and 147gr. American Eagle with Zero issues in any of my pistols.

More than 52, 000 flawless rounds from a Gen 4 G17 before going all Gen 5 Glocks.

Syntech is really the only softer shooting factory ammo that I am aware of.  There are other smaller companies making low power loads.  You may have to change your recoil spring, not sure whats allowed in GSSF.
