Like buying the most expensive gun isn't going to make you a master classs shooter. Again, JMO.
I am a Master in GSSF
- though I really shoot like an Amateur... But I'm most definitely benefiting from those powder-puff loads (for me, more like ~890fps with a 147). I estimate that the less felt recoil allowing faster follow-up shots has conservatively knocked 10% off my stock gun times. And I shoot the same loads in Steel and IDPA.
But with a great deal of consistency, my fastest times at any given multi-division GSSF match are with my (rather costly
) Unlimited Glock - though I have to run that at 1050fps with a 124.
