These out of a Springfield Armory XD-9 4" service pistol. I'm running the 4.4 grain load as my production load w/ the Missouri Bullet Smallball.
I've also run the Hornady XTP 124gr jhp with WST; a good load is 4.7 grains which produces about 1140fps w/ an OAL of 1.100, with excellent accuracy. That is in fact my production load w/ the XTP bullet.
Finally, I've also run the Precision Black Bullet w/ WST; 4.7 grains of WST at 1.120. It also does very well.
As usual, work up your loads. I was put onto WST by another longtime reloader who gave me some start loads that worked well, then I worked up to the loads above as the best performing of various amounts and OALs.

mongoose33, as there is no current published load data for WST load for 9mm, the usual warning/disclaimer applies - load at your own risk.
Hey, thanks for the load info ... will have some fun with WST in 45ACP, 40S&W and now 9mm. :D
Still wondering why Winchester won't release load data for 9mm ... :rolleyes:
Was it prone to pressure spikes at 9mm pressures? Maybe they are pushing W231 for 9mm?
