    Looking for a 124 grain 9mm hollow point with a rounded ogive for my CZ 75. The rounded profile will allow me to seat them out much further than an XTP or similar with the short leade of the CZ.

    I can load them a little warmer with a longer COL and feel more confident in feeding with a rounded profile. My CZ 75 hasn't skipped a beat, but a rounded profile can't hurt.

    Seen anything that fits the description that isn't too expensive and that has been proven to expand?
    Gold dots are $20.50/100.
    Golden Sabers never seem to be in stock.
    How about the plain Remingtons, seem kind of 'old school'.
    Any suggestions?

    'regular' remmy jhp's

    I've loaded good bit of them they feed just fine in me and nephew's S&W's and Bersa - and carbines.

    How "warm" do you want them?

    I load Montana Gold JHP's with 6.6 gr of 3N37 and chronograph them at 1255 fps average from my CZ75 SP-01. I use an OAL of 1.125 and have no issues with pressure. No "stretch marks" on the case or flowing/cratering primers.

    This is the fastest "published" load I have found and is a max load.

    That's warmer than I would go, but good to hear.
    I'll be using HS-6, that's as slow as I want to go with powder, so 1,150 fps or so is what I'm after.
    The price is right on those Remingtons, plus I can order as few as 100 to give them a try, maybe even try some expansion tests for fun.
    Thanks.

    I haven't tried the ZERO 125 JHP as a self defense round, it's commonly used by action shooters as an accurate target round. I did shoot through two full size telephone books with it using light target loads (132PF). The bullet kept going, but the hole got bigger and bigger.;)

    I've heard (at the CZ Forum) the Reminington 124JHP at standard velocity will feed nicely in a CZ. The published tests show good expansion results with factory rounds / NOT +P.

    Berry's bullets is investing money and effort into developing a real SD plated hollow point. There are some teaser pics of preliminary results that really look promising. http://www.czfirearms.us/index.php?topic=43301.0
