Federal American is my usual go to for 9mm, I carry 124gr HST and the 124gr American hits to the same POA/POI in my dot equiped pistols. For most other calibers its a mix but I tend to stick with Federal, Speer, and Magtech. I've been really impressed with Norma's .38 spl target ammo too.
For target practice, I've used a lotta stuff over the years - but currently I usually only buy:
Blazer Brass 9mm
Blazer Aluminum 9mm.
I only buy red box Federal 9mm FMJ when that is all I can get. Years ago, when WalMart sold it, I had issues with multiple Berettas having issues. It was maddening... Once jam every 400-500 rounds, across multiple guns... It was discussed a lot on the Beretta Forum, and others had the same issues. Finally someone measured the brass, and many cases were out of spec.
Once I quit shooting that stuff, I never had another issue again.
