147 gr. Help

Recently I bought a Stainless Gold Match in 9mm. I've got an accuracy load for my Glocks using Titegroup for the 147 load. However, in the Kimber it's not good at all. Maybe a slower powder like HP-38 or Unique ? I'm hoping the sloooow twist (16") Kimber uses isn't the issue.

I solved that myself. A healthy charge of hp38 does the trick. Oh, evidently barrel in a pistol is a non issue.

That slow twist is actually just a bit faster than optimum (17-22:1) for 147gn bullets.
Bullseye shooters are using 30:1 for 115 and 124gn bullets.
For ALL my 9x19s, the most accurate powders (<2" at 25 yards) are all rather slow, with the best being Power Pistol.
How does factory ammo compare between the two pistols?
