    Hey guys,

    I got a thousand of the MBC 147 gr 9mm projectiles in and really haven't had a chance to work up a load for my Springfield XD. Well, as chance would have it, I have a chance to go shooting tomorrow and would like to load up a mess of ammo that will at least work.

    I have Accurate Nos. 2, 5 and 7 on hand. I'd appreciate any recipes that you could share and please include the COL that you loaded to.

    Thanks a lot.

    Accurate 9mm data. Use the 145gr lead data for the 147gr lead since 2grs isn't enough difference to make any difference on bullet weight.

    I have the accurate data manual. The data is for a Montana Cast Bullets projectile and it's listed as a RN.

    I was just asking if anyone might want to share their data on this specific projectile.

    As long as you reduce the load 10% and work up your load the different bullet profile isn't going to matter much. The weight is a much bigger issue.

    All the Best,

    I won't give you a numerical load, but I can tell you that AA#2 Improved & AA#5 work really well in my 9s - I use the published data to work up and they are very accurate, and in my PT-99, the recoil seems to be less than hot 115s. The 145 or 150 gr data can be used with starting loads with no problems (at least I encountered none). Good bullet/powder combo.
