    147gr plated or FMJ bullet over 4grs Unique seated to 1.150". Chronos at 980+/- fps out of my Glock 17. Works well for IDPA-USPSA-GSSF. Shoots well and cycles the gun well.

    Thanks for sharing glockgod.
    Do you use a Berrys plated bullet or something else?

    I first used this recepie with 147gr lead bullets( I shot a lot of lead thru my Glocks before I discovered it couldn't be done!) then went to 147gr Ranier plated bullets. This worked better accuracy wise. Last year I shot Precision Delta 147gr FMJ's. Going to give Montana Golds a try this year-they come highly reccomended by other shooters I compete with.

    I am just getting into 9mm loading. I purchased 1000 plated 115grn rn bullets. I have tried 2 different loads so far, both with Win AutoComp . 1) 4.6gr & COL 1.125". 2) 5.0 gr & 1.1" The 4.6gr load was having difficulty getting enough ejection power, and had a few stove pipes. I am going tonight to try the 2nd load. I think it will do ok. One problem I am having is "loose primer pockets". The majority of my brass (9 out of 10) is my own brass I have shot from new, albeit, some are manf reloads. I am rather new to the reloading game and wonder the consequences of loose primers. I have read various thoughts on this.
    thanks, MW

    I have had great luck with a 147gr LRN from Stonewall bullets..Use 3.0gr Bullseye and adjust OAL
    to your barrel and magazine..Mild and accurate..

    I like 3.8gr of Green Dot behind a 147gr cast lead bullet.

    Shoots great in my Dan Wesson 9mm 1911.

    I have 231 and a few others in the basement but havent decided on what powder I will use. I will load a 115 JHP though. Some recipes quote that bullet at about 1150-1175 FPS

    124 gr JHP Montana Gold over 4.4 grs of Bullseye. Clean, accurate load and works flawlessly in all my 9 mm handguns.

    Anyone have a 9mm recipe using 115g fmj or jhp with Red Dot? I found a recipe on "Steves Pages" but can't find any other sources to confirm the load data. Today, I went to Alliant's website and posted a request there. I have a good supply of Blue Dot and Unique but I have about 5lbs of Red Dot I use for shot shell reloading.

    Thanks Sully2. It looks similar to what I got from Steve's Pages except for primers which tells me that both came from different sources.

    Update on 9mm recipe with Red Dot

    Not sure anyone cares but I've been using 4.3gr of Red Dot under a 115gr FMJ and the combination seems to work very well, at least in my G17. Not one stove pipe and the accuracy seems good, as far as I can tell. Thank goodness as I have about 10lbs of the stuff and needed a way to use it up!

    9mm Home Defense Load

    So now, I have a few hundred 9mm reloads under my belt and I want to load up some "SHTF" rounds for defense. I've sone some research and it seems that the 124gr and 147gr JHP bullets offer the best terminal ballistics. I'm looking for a recommendation on defense loads that I can work up for my G17. Can anyone help?
