Title: 9mm loads?
Post by: CountryRootsCityJob on January 25, 2010, 01:40:16 PM
Well first, if any of you have a favorite load for 9mm, please share it*!  *As long as it is within the published limits of course!  That will give me and others something to think about...

Next... I have (Hornady) 115gr RN FMJ bullets for 9mm and zero profiles that fit that in my reloading book... there is a similar load using hollow points, but what do to for spacing?  There are other round nose loads, but lead cast bullets and 120gr... should I use the spacing on those and the powder loads for the HP's? OR, does anybody have any load data i could borrow? 

Oh, I was planning on using 700X since it is widely compatible with different calibers... anybody have experience with it?

I use X-Treme 115 grn RN copper jacketed.
I load them with 4.2 grns of Titegroup--My Sierra manuel has this as the best load for accuracy.
It's a nice mid range load
OAL is 1.100

I have been using this for about 4 years now--it's my favorite 9MM load

Hello
My Trusted 9mm Load just happens to use 700X that you had mentioned above

115gr Xtreme copper plated round nose ( same for berry's 115 plated)
4.1 grain 700X
COL 1.129 in
Federal SP match primers (or federal SP regular)

Great load. Have one many competitions with it.
Clean burning
Has always made power factor or me.
Low recoil impulse.

Why I like 700X? Clean Cheap, goes along way, but still has a lot of volume, so you will most likely notice a double charge.

As always find the load in a manual for yourself.

I found a very mild 147 grain load
147 X-treme cprn
COL 1.169
Win Or CCI SP primers
3.0 700X
Manual Lyman manual says 2.9 - 3.3 of 700X

2.9 was a bit low but 3.0-3.1 is great accurate and very mild recoil impulse !
PS don't over crimp the copper plated bullets.

Bad load for 9mm
COL 1.167
147 gr
3.5 tight group
Win SP

High recoil very poor accuracy

I like titegoup but not in the 147 9mm
