I found a big box of 147 grain flat point hardened cast leab bullets in my stash and i want to use them up but my loading book has no data above 125 grains. I like to use unique powder, and ideas on a source for data?

Hodgdon current web data
9mm 147 GR. LEAD CFP
WSF .355" 1.169" 3.7 905 28,500 PSI 4.1 965 32,800 PSI
Question are you looking for 147 or 125 gr data. Its not clear from your post - you mention both in the same sentance and question.

Lyman #49 is one of the best. Most of the powder manufacturers also list data online.
