Berry says to use low to mid-range jacketed data not to exceed 1,200 FPS.

Lyman #49 says 5.9 Start Load - 6.5 MAX load with a 115 JHP.

Alliant says 6.7 grains is MAX with the 115 Gold-Dot.
Reduce 10% for 6.0 grains and it should be about right.

RC nailed it.
I like VV powders for our 9mm's. But I have found my wife's Berretta Vertec and my 92 both like 6.0 gr of Power Pistol over a 115 gr plated bullet just in case I run out of my VV powders.

I'm right there with you guys-put together some 115gr. Rainier Plated HP yesterday with 6.0gr. of Alliant PowerPistol. Haven't shot any of them yet, but from what you say, they should do well..:)
