Hello all, a few months ago I ordered some Winchester 9mm silver tip bullets (because it was all that was in stock).

I have the Lymans 49th, Lee's (latest load book) and the 2013 Hodgdons manual. I cant find specific load data for this 147 Grain 9mm bullet.

Can I use any 147 grian hollow point load data or do I have to have a load data specific for the "silvertip" bullet?

What other manuals would any of your experienced reloaders recommend?

Thanks

Steve

PS: the Remington bullets were just another set of bullets I had in the pic...

1999-2005 Winchester load data (http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=159609&stc=1&d=1329800605) actually used 147 gr Silvertip JHP (see page 28 of pdf) for load data on page 31 of pdf.

Comparing to current Hodgdon load data (http://data.hodgdon.com/cartridge_load.asp), it looks same to me.

147 gr JHP Winchester WSF Diameter .355" OAL 1.169" Start 4.0 gr (900 fps) 30,100 PSI - Max 4.3 gr (935 fps) 32,300 PSI

Hey thanks BDS, I appreciate the info and links.

Where do you see the overall length for the 147 grain bullet on the Winchester PDF file?

Also whats the difference between XTP and JHP?

They look so very similar.

1999 - 2001 Winchester load data did not show OAL and 2003 Winchester load data just listed "Maximum Overall Length with Bullet Seated" for that particular caliber which is same as SAAMI max.

In 2006 when Hodgdon was licensed by Winchester to sell their powders, Winchester load data matched Hodgdon load data and started showing actual OAL used - http://www.castpics.net/LoadData/Freebies/RM/winchester.html


whats the difference between XTP and JHP?
XTP is just a name used by Hornady to market their JHP bullets like Hornady HAP (Hornady Action Pistol), Federal Hydra-Shok, Remington Golden Saber, Speer Gold Dot, etc.

It stands for "XTP = Extreme Terminal Performance".

XTP was named after one of the Dillon calendar girls. It stands for Exceedingly Tight Pants.

:D

Thanks again bud, I went ahead and printed out the Hodgdon load data that they have online. I totally forgot about that data. It should come in handy (if I can find any powders)...

Thanks

When I come across a bullet that I can't find specific data for, I use data for a bullet of same weight and basic profile. Then I start at the starting charge, and begin my work up.
