FMJ or copper plated?
I just got done shooting a thousand 124 gn rn FMJ from precision delta through my cz. I can't enough good things about them. Paid $77 for 1k shipped.

FMJ or copper plated?
Either would work. Where did you get your bullets from?

I've used Berry (factory direct order) and Ranier (Cabelas) and they work just fine.
Both are plated rounds and usually 115 gr RN.

Precision delta is where you should look.
$68/1k delivered for 9mm 115 FMJ.
They are excellent for training purposes.
Minimum order of 2k, mix and match allowed.

Precision Delta, Zero, Golden West, Montana Gold ... all good sources for relatively cheap jacketed bullets. I personally like Montana Gold best. If you buy a case, 9mm cases are like 3750 bullets, they're as cheap as anybody else and the quality is exellent. All the match shooters love them as well.

Precision Delta is the one. I have used about 4k to date and still have about 1,500 on hand. Prices are the best and the bullets, while not match grade, are excellent for general use.

My CZ has used Winchester, Berry, and Montana Gold. To date, the Berry RN work the best for low power plinking and the CZ will let you load them out to 1.169" if needed.
The MG 121gr are great for competition, but they are ~$30/1000 more than the 124gr Precision Delta I have on order.
I tried the Zero 124gr and the OAL got down to under 1.000" due to the CZ's short freebore. I didn't trust the feeding at that short OAL. Luckily I was able to trade them to a pal with a Glock.
The CZ has a lot of issues chambering bullets other than RN. Even then not all RN are "good to go". For example the Montana Gold RN gives it issues. I would HIGHLY suggest you buy the smallest lot possible and test the bullets before you buy 500 of anything. Some companies will gladly send 1 or 2 samples for a minor mailing fee.
Hope this helps!

+1 on the Montana Golds. Buy the case and save a bunch as their prices include shipping. I get the 124FMJ's from them to use in compitition for USPSA, Steel Plates and IDPA. Great company to deal with and the look of the bullets are very cool. Performance is top notch.
