4.4-4.8gr should do it with a decent OAL. Hodgdon does have info on 124 gr jacketed. That's where I got it from.

Ooops, my bad. It's for a 125 gr bullet. Well, lucky you, I've already tested this load and I'm still alive.

Edit: Next time get the RN or the FP's. Berry's HP don't do anything (under 1200fps, at least) but look ugly and clog up with media if you get the urge to tumble them.

i wouldn't have normally bought these without knowing whether or not i could find data easily, however, i got 200 of 'em for $22 at my local gun store. it's kinda hit and miss there.....thanks for testing that load out for me gloob!! glad you lived to tell the tale!!

I load a metric ton of 9mm 124g Berry RN 9mm, i dested a few with W231 according to my notes, my best load seemed to have been
124g Berry W231 4.2g 1.135" COAL

While I didnt choose this as my load, I went with 4.5g Universal, looking back at my Targets, W231 was decent enough.

I've shot 1000's using 4.8gr of WSF with Berry's 124gr RN 9mm. The WSF make it a soft shooting round not as snappy as 231.

The Hodgdon web site will start to carry loads for Berry plated bullets by the end of the month.

Berry's 124gr HBRN is a really good shooting bullet--better groups than the RN. The base is hollow and chamferred, so it seats really easily.
Try it when you get a chance.

Looks like 4.8gr of WSF worked best for 124gr PRN Berry's in my Firestar.

The Hodgdon web site will start to carry loads for Berry plated bullets by the end of the month.
Great news!

I had luck with Berry's 124gr HBFP over 4.3gr of W231. Very accurate out of my G17.

I use Hodgdon data for 125 gr HP's with Berry's 124 HBFP. Velocity is almost exactly as predicted for the jacketed loads. Stay 10% below max.

While Hodgdon may not have data for a 124 gr, they DO have data for 125 gr.
One grain isn't going to make a difference, but bullet profile will.

Bullet Weight (Gr.) …Manufacturer …..Powder …Bullet Diam. C.O.L. ..Grs….Vel. (ft/s)….Pressure …….Grs. ….Vel. (ft/s)…. Pressure
125 GR. LCN ……...…Winchester ……...231 ……….356" …....….1.125" ..3.9….1009 ………25,700 CUP…....4.4……1086…….31,200 CUP
125 GR. SIE FMJ …..Winchester ……...231 ……….355" …….....1.090" ..4.4….1009…….…24,600 CUP…....4.8……1088…….28,800 CUP
