I am try to find the definition of LCN. I have looked everywhere on the web to no avail. I believe the L is for lead, but can't find what the other letters mean. Hoping someone can enlighten me. Thank you.

Lead conical nose?

That would be my guess also.

Oldham, do you have a picture or a link we can take a look at?

Lead Conical Nose it is.
Otherwise known as a Lead Truncated Cone, or LTC?
On the other hand, it is possible they actually found a fully cone shape pointed bullet mold that doesn't have a Truncated point?

Page 69 in the Hodgdon 2009 manual defines it.
I think that is the only place I ever saw it used.

The only place I see right off hand they use it in the manual is with a 125 grain 9mm LCN load.

Nudder vote for Lead Conical Nose.

Accurate Powder's data sheet has the abbreviations for bullet types.
You can find it here:

LOL - just checked they don't have Conical nose in their abbreviations:banghead:

Many thanks guys, as some of you noted, no pictures were available. I am loading 9 mm with LRN which I believe is Lead Round Nose and the nearest bullet weight was the LCN. Thanks again.

Yes, LRN is Lead Round Nose and you can use the load data for the LCN with the LRN with the possible exception of the OAL (Over All Length) or COAL (Cartridge Over All Length) but even that is probably valid.
