I was wondering if anyone has had accuracy trouble with the G17. I am feeding it S&B 9mm, and the gun's accuracy suffers. I've had better luck with RMC, Winchester, and CCI Blazers. What gives? Does this come with the territory for this gun? Or is S&B 9mm known for this?

Your experiences and feedback would appreciated.

ps: I feel the need to "blast"

Dont know about the G17 but S&B shoots extremely well out of my G19.

Suggest you try another brand of ammo. One size does not fit all.

Ammo selection can have a large effect on accuracy. My 17 groups best with Sinterfire 100gr.

I have found the single most accurate round in my 17 or 19 is ProLoad 115gr +p.

As Matt was saying, keep trying different ammo. Its like trying to handload for your favorite rifle, you can have groups that are 1.5" MOA, then all of a sudden you drop a few grains of powder and it shoots .5" MOA. The same holds true for pistols, certain gun/barrels like certain ammo. If you can't get the accuracy that you want and know you are capable of shooting, then do as I do...get rid of it, I hate inaccurate guns. This is not a Glock problem, but a gun problem if the accuracy is not obtainable.

I have never shot S&B (also never understood why anyone would, since American factory ammo like Blazer is cheaper), but I have shot a lot of other ammo in my G17 and it's amazingly accurate (a lot more accurate than I'm capable of shooting offhand).

I find my G17 to shoot as accurately as my other Glocks (G19, G23, g27 and G34), but all seem about the same.

9mm Blazer ammo is available from Natchez Shooters Supply (www.natchezss.com) for around $4.85/box of 50 all the time. It's even lower when they run a sale. Shipping may add around $.50/box, but there's no sales tax, so for most folks it's a good price.

For quite awhile, the outdoor range where I'm a member did not allow use of CCI Blazer. I think this was because they wanted brass for re-sale, and didn't want to have to cull out the aluminum cases.

They do allow it now, though.

In several of the Glocks I shoot, the most accurate ammo by far is the Remington Golden Saber. I know it's not cheap but you can buy the bullets if you reload and you can probably make better loads than Remington given the wide velocity variation of the factory ammo.

Try the Fiocchi 9mm. This ammo is accurate, hot, clean-burning, and usually inexpensive.
