Welcome to the forum. Getting a G17 to shoot 2" groups @ 50ft is easliy done with just about any powder/bullet combo. I find best accuracy w/ heavier bullets, buit good work can be done w/ 115gr. I don't load BE anymore, not since 1970s & PP is really not for lighter paper punching loads. I would start w/ book data for 147gr FMJ loads. Use avg middle data from 2-3 sources. Then adjust up or down to see how she shoots.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
