The standard bullet for 9mm accuracy is the Hornady 115GR HXP. It'll typically shoot better than 45 Auto in a well-fitted 1911.

I believe I recall you like the SA Range Officer? Not sure if that comes in 38 super or not?
Yep, unfortunately, the RO only comes in .45 ACP or 9mm. I suppose you could substitute a .38 Super barrel in their 9mm model. Clark Custom guns has .38 Super barrels that they sell. It would just take fitting the bushing. It might need a different extractor and ejector. Being partial to Colts first, I might go with their new competition model. It would be easy enough to change out the rear sight to a Bo-Mar type sight and the front sight is now legal.

I am still trying to figure out if there is still a weight limit, as I intend to shoot Modern Military at Perry this year, and want to know if my RRA is going to cut it, or if I am going to have to go and dig into the safe for something lighter. It is 9.7 lbs without optics.

Good morning Crane Hunter,

I will take a shot at this question for my own learning benefit.
If I understand you correctly you are asking definitively about the Modern Military (M.M.) Event, NOT an EIC match, yes?

If I am correct you mean the Modern Military Match there does seem to be a weight limiit for M.M.
Copied and pasted is what I found in the rule book:

5.2.3 U.S. Modern Sporting Rifles, Class A
Category A Modern Sporting Rifles must comply with these additional
 Rifles based on the M-16 or AR design and manufactured by a USA
manufacturer must be used.
 Total rifle weight, with sights and without sling, may not exceed 8.5

I found the above on pages 41 & 42.

IF you are asking about AR style rifles in EIC matches...there is no weight limit.... That is not considered to be the Modern Military match though.

Hope this helps.

EIC total points:
(4) SAFS Camp Perry 2014--381.8
(12) Western PacFleet All Navy Matches 2016--464.9
(20) Western PacFleet All Navy Matches 2017--479.11
(28) 29 Palms Marine Corps Base EIC 2017--482.10
(34) Western PacFleet All Navy Matches 2018 --475.8
