    Guys,

    I have a GSSF G17 that I haven't used at a GSSF match yet. I have shot GSSF with my G30 previously.

    My question is whether the 115 grain Wincester white box ammo will consistently knock the plates down, or, should I use a heavier bullet (147gr) for the plates?

    Thanks!

    It's more than enough t knock the plates down.

    All GSSF steel is calibrated to fall when hit with factory 115-gr 9mm ammo.

    Winchester white box 115gr is what I used in Richmond and plan to use in Statesville, Conyers, and Anderson. As long as I made it hit the plate, it made the plate fall. It's hard to beat $11 per 100, even if you load your own.

    While the rules say it will keep in mind you never know. I have used that same ammo with NO problems. IF you get a solid ring but does not fall just shoot it again and AFTER you are done politely ask the RO about it. If not solid or leaning forward it will not fall. Most will let you shoot again if you wish.
    (that is from other type of matches that were set up for 38 super or 45 acp)
