    Does anyone shoot 9mm Glock in USPSA/IPSC matches that has a favorite handload they would like to share?

    I currently have some 115gr JHPs but I'm open to using any bullet/powder.

    I use Montana Gold 115s over 4.9 grains of Bullseye.

    I'll use Berry, Frontier, or Rainier plated bullets over the same powder--whatever I can get the best price on. This ain't Bullseye shooting, they just need to go where I point 'em.

    125 gr lrn with 4gr Win 231. I am actualy at about 3.95 gr. to make minor. I had to put in a 15 lb recoil spring and uncaptured guide in my g34 to handle reloads reliably. If you don't do that, I beleive the glock will give you jams in some of the wierd positions you will shoot from.

    125gr LRN with 3.9-4.0 (smack dab in the middle really) HP38 (same as win321.) at 1.125" and LWD barrel -- sounds identical to arkieron's load.

    Functions flawlessly, but my 17 came with a different rod/spring so I'm not 100% sure what spring it is.

    HK Dan: Are you using RN 115's?

    Arkieron: Thanks for the advice on the reduced recoil spring

    147 grain berry's plated
    4.0 grains of W-231 or 3.8 grains of bullseye

    138 power factor

    Most glock mags won't like long stuff. I keep mine in the 1.130" neighborhood
