    What kind of accuracy can you expect from a Glock 21, all stock?

    With 200g HP Rainers with 9.0 grs of AA#5, I can barely keep 10 shots within six inches at 12yds. Same with Speer 230 Gold Dot and 8.5 grs of AA#5.

    My Glock 20 with the right ammo will give one 10 shot ragged hole at 12 yds.

    Any accurate load recommendations would be appreciated

    Hey Dennis that sounds like something is wrong. Have you tried any factory ammo, for groups?

    Try backing off on your loads a little; would also try either jacketed or another brand of plated bullets, if the inaccuracy persists.

    Could be something as simple as overcrimping.

    With the last G21 I loaded for,I liked using Berry's 230gr RN and 4.5gr Bullseye.Shot great for me and other shooters that tried them in their G21's,etc.One guy I know shot 2 3/4" 5 shot groups at 50 yards with a rest and using that load in his 21.I never did like Rainiers and never got them too work corrrect in any caliber I tried.They always seem to shed the plating easy and when loading,seemed to shave easily when seating.I never got the accuracy like I did with Berry's.

    Glockmeister, have you run those loads over a chrono? 4.5 gr sounds pretty soft shooting. I'm curious what kind of velocity they get.

    I load 230RN berry's on top of 5.1 W231.

    Absolute Tack driver. Same hole at 7 yards and good groups at 25 yards.

    Absolutely amazing!

    c5367-No,no chrono and yes it is a light load,but is accurate and always cycles.
