I have started reloading for idpa. I am currently loading berrys 9mm 124 gr rn at a power factor of 129. My question is would going to a 147 gr at the same power factor be a noticeable difference in recoil or muzzle rise? I would like to hear others opinions. Thanks

Welcome to THR.

Heavier 147 gr bullet loads meeting IDPA power factor should give you less felt recoil than 124 gr loads.

I find that heavier bullets with fast powders yield the lowest amount of felt recoil you just have to be careful with pressures. My favorite low recoil round for 9mm so far is a 173gr swc with AA#2 behind it. Still easy to make minor and recoil is very low.

Thanks for the replies. Wil be ordering more bullets soon and will definitely give the 147's a try. When it comes to competitive shooting I need all the help I can get.
