Threw together these two loads. Need help.

Target on the left the upper group was aimed at the red dot and was 7.0 Grs. AA#5 & Hornady 115 Gr. FMJ. - 9 shots
Avg. Velocity - 1112, ES - 69, SD - 26

The lower group was aimed at bottom of target and was 4.9 Grs. Universal Clays & 124 Gr. Rem Golden Sabers. - 7 shots, quit while I was ahead.
Avg. Velocity - 1099, - ES - 51, SD - 17

This gun liked the Golden Sabers. Need to find something cheaper it will shoot this well.

Any thoughts. Bullets - Powders?

I've had good luck useing plated bullets, Rainer or Zero 115gr, just don't load them to hot or over crimp. 5.1grs of win 231 gives me velocties of about 1150

Ranier 115 bullets shot worse than the Hornady's. with 7 grs. AA # 5. I wondered if was too hot for plated bullets. Thats why I tried the Hornady's with a real jacket.
I thought maybe someone had a better powder to use since I don't have much experience loading 9mm. I have shot a LOT of .45, but not much 9mm.
I'm willing to buy any powder I don't have to try it. Thanks.
