    So I know the Glock 20 has an almost cult following and very few have attempted the headache of trying the 9x25 dillon conversion barrel i recently decided to do so out of curiosity. Just seeing if anyone out there reloads the 9x25 and what their best loads so are so far i`m pretty happy with 115gn xtp over 11.0 gns bd cci300 primers and resized starline brass. don`t have chrono numbers being the chrono had a fatal run in with a 50gr. vmax at high speed.

    There are folks on GlockTalk that run the 9x25 Dillon. I've played with it in the past. It's a impressive round.

    As a G20 owner myself. I hope to be working with the 9x25 next year. Right now I'm having to much fun working up my 10mm loads. :)

    I was looking at this round again the other day. Really neat and would be why I would go for a first ever Glock... just to shoot it.

    I shot my Chrony twice then got smart. Get the remote display (brains) then put 3/8" plat steel on an angle in front of the sensors. The $30 spent on the plates will save it for life!

    I have shot 9x25 and found it too be exceptionally loud in a comped gun. it was fun but the recoil slammed the gun a round a lot. I read once it was like holding onto a steel bar and getting the bar hit by a hammer hard. That accurately described it.

    I have been thinking about getting one myself someday though....

    It is impressive but double up on the hearing protection.
    It is one loud round, which in my opinion makes it only suitable for situations where you will already be wearing hearing protection, and not defensive use.

    I would like to have seen an MP5 in 9x25 Dillon. I think it would make a nice SMG round and the nearly 9inch barrel of the MP5 would really do the light fast loads justice without being too much.

    Yeah it is very very loud not for cc 10mm is too good to replace for that. The biggest turn off was the dies 130 a tad on the salty side and it didn't come with an expanding die but what I did since I already had a lee 4 die set for my 10mm I bought a 9x19 expanding die took it apart and used the internals and put it into my 10mm expanding die and at 10 bucks saved me 10 bucks over buying the rcbs die everyone uses. All I have to say about this caliber is amazing I definitely recommend it. But then again I love loud things much like any man it's comparable to my compd 300 rum

    This sentence runs 74 words before any type of punctuation.

    I'm tired! :)

    I bet if they made a 9x25 CARBINE it would be a dandy rifle. 125gr should go past 2000 fps in a 16 inch barrel.

  9. David E, you wouldn't be an English teacher, would you?

    I'm an english reader, but I quit reading post#6 about 6 or 7 words into that convoluted 2nd sentence! :neener:

    I wasn't even thinking. I'm using an iPad and don't type a lot on it. Not trying to get lectured on typing, just educated on others info on 9x25.

    Now that's a cool idea!

    CAUTION: The following post includes loading data beyond currently published maximums for this cartridge. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Neither the writer, The High Road, nor the staff of THR assume any liability for any damage or injury resulting from use of this information.

    I'm using a 115 gr XTP over 10.4 grains of Longshot. I'm getting between 1650 and 1700 fps. I have loads that go up to 10.8, but haven't chronoed them yet.

    Added: I took my loads directly off The_Shadow on the Glocktalk 10 mm forum after my experiments with W296 and AA9 using Lyman load data was disappointing.

    Also, of note, this load has not been pressure tested and should be considered a max or beyond max load

    I am a linguist by profession, but I don't make it a point to pick people apart in here, unless they are speaking unintelligibly. I came here to talk guns, not grammar.

    I understand that the idea of the 9x25 Dillon was to generate more gas for comped guns.

    Good we got that cleared up. I'm using blue dot works pretty well just picked up some 110 and alliant 2400 going to give it a try. do you use cci 300 or 350's?
  16. David E

    David E Well-Known Member

    110 and 2400 would be paired with 350 primers here.
  17. Zane

    Cci 350

    Just checking some load books say magnum some say regular. I just loaded 14.8gr bd under a 90gr xtp cci350s resized starline 10mm brass. On glock 20s do you guys change your recoil spring or does stock suffice for you?

    I went to a 22 lb recoil spring when my higher end 10mm loads were clearly unlocking with high chamber pressures. I've never shot the 9x25 dill pickle with a lighter spring. My 20 is uncompensated currently, so that may change when I finally thread the barrel.

    To add to the primer discussion a bit, my first set of 9x25 cartridges used CCI 300s and just off a max charge of W296. The gun would not cycle. Changing to CCI 350s, with the same charge, allowed reliable cycling.

    Yeah I used all 350s in my last loads 100 rounds 0 ftf. However I feel a lot of recoil so I might be going to a heavier spring. I wish I could get a polymer rod with the 22 lb I personally hate the steel and tungsten. Had one for 3 hours shot 30 round had 4 jams and sent that pos back to glockstore.
