X-Treme 147 grain.

same here(for reloading).  x-treme is also owned by freedom munitions.

If you're looking for loaded ammo, freedom has that too.

Freedom 115 and 124 has been great for me. I've used a combo of their reman and new ammo and haven't had any issues after 3000 rounds.

That's pretty light.    Do you have any problems taking down poppers?

That's what I thought also.

Do you have trouble making minor PF?  Seems like most recipe's that I've seen with 124's and titegroup are around 4.0gr +/-

That's one of the nice things about 3 gun.  No power factor requirements.  Just the embarrassment factor of leaving copious amounts of the steel standing.

This. I don't shoot USPSA unfortunately because I live 3 or 4 hours from the nearest range that hosts a regular match. For outlaw 3-gun, it knocks over steel just fine. At Zombies in the Heartland last weekend, we had to shoot a popper at 50yds for a -5 bonus, and I was able to knock it down. If there is a stubborn popper, as we all have encountered from time to time, I'll have the same trouble everyone has getting it to fall, but I can rip off faster doubles or triples due to the light load. I'm running it in a factory STI Eagle and have had no malfunctions with it, shoots flat and with little recoil.

Good to know. I'm pretty sure if the setup a chrono at a random local match there would be some people not making PF anyway.

i had no problems knocking over the bonus at 50 with 3.3 tight group and 124 xtream. some of the heads on the plate racks gave me problems but they were positioned more forward. just had to give them a double tap or hit them high. I dont see the need to waste powder if i dont have to meet pf. powder is hard to find around here so i have to save where i can.

Nice! I can get almost 2k rounds out of a pound of TG. I bought 3 kegs last summer when it was getting hard to find, I'm glad I have it now that it's rarely seen. I paid $18/lb a year ago. I've seen it on GB lately for $60/lb+

Been shooting Freedom Munitions 147 gr 9mm. Recently tried some Stand 1 Armory 147 gr "chubbies" which are loaded with to minor power factor. The cubbies seem to shoot smoother to me personally, and at basically the same price as Freedom I've made the switch.
