Best 9mm I've seen is a custom shop loaded model from Springfield armory. milt Williams shoots one . Not cheap, but shoots knots at 50yd from Ransom rest.
I just don't see many of the smith ppc's available out there.
I'm working with a 9mm S.A loaded with a Nowlin bbl that I'm waiting for the weather to break to test loads with.
I know the bullseye shooters like the S.A range officer as a base gun for accurizing. Might be worth looking at.
