I'm not new to reloading but I am new to the 9mm so I would appreciate some remarks to guide me a little.
I want a starting load that will ensure the bullet leaves the barrel but also one that wont abuse me or the gun.
My proposed load is:
Berry;s 115 grain round nose bullet
F C Brass
Western Primer
W-231 powder, 4.1 Grains.
COAL=1.090
The P-95 has a 3.9 inch barrel.
I have the bullets and powder on hand so I want use them if possible. I have read everything I can find-to the point of confusing myself and would like to read some helpful remarks for one of the members that may have more specific experience than I do.
Thanks for taking the time to reply

The load that you have listed is what I use in my P95. Your P95 will operate consistently with much less powder than what is required for a Sig, Glock or S&W 9mm. When I shoot my P95 with that load there is very little recoil. It is a great load for plinking. If you do have any feeding issues, just increase your powder by 0.1 grains and try it again. But I don't think that you will have any problems.
