Hello Reloaders!

Just wanted to get some reloading data for this. Have some Berry's 9mm 147 gr plated bullets, and want to use Titegroup. Would like to know how many grains of T. Group and OAL if someone could offer that info.

Thanks so much

Here's a link to Hodgdon's reloading data. Just plug in "pistol", then 9mm, and it will take you to a chart for 9mm loads. If you do a search you can find other reloading data for other powders, bullets, etc.

Good Luck :)

This the 9mm reloading thread of Brian Enos. They give out a lot of specific info that will be very helpful. Good read. Co-incidence. I just now received 1000 147gr Berry plated bullets.
What pistol do you have and are you planning to shoot IDPA-IPSC?

IMHO that power is too fast to do a good job with a heavy bullet. I think it was WalkAlong who said it was 'like trying to get a bowling ball going by hitting it with a baseball bat'.

HERE'S (http://www.reloadbench.com/burn.html) a powder speed chart.

I like powders down around HS-6, WAP, N-340 for plinking with a 147gr. For your competition you may prefer a "fast powder", but I think you'll find that's going to be in the W231, 700X, Zip speed range.

That may have been rcmodel, but it's a good analogy.

Depends on what he is looking to do with the load.

I remember reading in one of the threads the difference between slow vs fast powder for heavier bullet is pushing a bowling ball with your hand vs slapping a bowling ball. :D

For lighter bullet, I like the analogy of pushing a tennis ball vs slapping the tennis ball.

For 9mm, I prefer the lighter 124/125 gr over the 147 gr bullet with faster burning powders.

I use 3.4 gr. Titegroup with a 147 gr. FMJ for ca 900 fps and Hodgdon's max is 3.6 gr. Titegroup for that bullet. The 3.4 gr. load is a soft shooting and accurate load. The olnly problem I find with Titegroup is that it is a very hot burning powder. Shooting a 30 round stage really heats up the barrel.
