My Beretta PX4 9mm shoots great, but low. Sights are not adjustable, so I suppose my only option is to adjust the reloads. Iím shooting 115 gr JHPs that are loaded warm but not hot. Would shooting a heavier bullet bring that POI up? Iím a revolver guy, so this problem is new to me.

I suppose I could just aim a bit higher, but that isnít my preferred solution.

You could always take a file and lower the rear front sight a bit.... 2cents

$79 for a set of adjustable sights from Beretta.

http://www.berettausa.com/en-us/beretta-px4-series-adjustable-rear-sight-and-front-sight/e00457/

You could also put a lower front sight or taller rear sight on it.

Shooting a heavier bullet would raise the poi.

Heavier bullets fall faster, right? Gravity?

Travel slower, spend longer in the barrel, theoretically should hit higher because recoil should point the barrel higher.

try a "drive the dot" sight picture instead of using the top of the front sight post?

if that doesn't work, just replace the front sight post. You can buy different heights, just have to do some research on what you have so you can find a suitable replacement.
