    On Hodgdon reloading webpage they list :

    9 mm 125 GR. LCN

    for the last two days I have tried to figure out what "LCN" stands for. Probably will be obvious when someone tells me but I give up.
    Any problem substituting those loads for 125 gr. LRN?

    Lead Conical Nose is my best guess. Load data would be the same for the RN, but seating OAL may well be different.

    Speaking of abbreviations, if you are selling guns what does FTF and all of those mean?

    Talking of selling guns FTF= Face to Face.

    Describing a malfunction FTF= Failure to Feed.

    Galil has it.

    also termed with a 357 SIG as TC for truncated cone.

    seating 125 LRN and 130 RNFP [Flat Point--same basically also] on my SD-b is the same.

    Or Failure to Fire.

    It can be confusing, can't it?

    Back on subject, that 125 grain Lead Conical Nose bullet has proven to be one of the most accurate in my .38 Supers. I've got the mold and it's a great bullet.

    Hope this helps.
