My order of lead bullets arrived today from Falcon Bullets (http://www.falconbullets.com/product_p/fbc-9-par-147fp.htm). Anyone have any "pet" loads for a 9mm 147gr in an SR9? Thanks!

When I shot lead bullets in my 9mm it was a cast 147 gr. using between 3.3 and 3.5 gr. W-231 for velocities of ca. 900fps. I believe that 3.5 gr. W-231 was listed as the maximum load with that bullet in the W-W manual.

Lead or jacketed-my favorite load for 147s is 4gr. Unique. Seated to around 1.150". Shoots well and runs my Glocks just fine. Start at 3.5 or so and go from there.

A max load of Accurate #2 (4.3gr) will drop the brass literally next to your feet without having any FTE problems. Using a max load of Accurate #5 (5.1gr) will give you firmer recoil but put a good taper crimp on it or you will get powder spray in your face. I also really like Alliants old Bullseye load for 147gr jacketed bullets, it works just as well for lead, of 4.2gr. Good velocity, efficient powder charge, good recoil, no unburned powder spray to the face. Probably my favorite load. It is in their 2004 manual which easy easily downloadable.

i ran 4.3g unique for my 147g lead bullets form MO bullet CO. Cycle very well in my xd9. I don't plan on changing that recipe.

I like 4.8gr of HS-6 with lead 147s. Low recoil and accurate.

Thanks everyone! I tend to favor w231/hp38 so I'll give that a run.

With 147gr I really like N340 which compares in speed to WSF. Hunt up some WSF.
