    I’d like to have the min/max load data and OAL for the following:
    • Caliber: 9mm
    • Bullet: Speer 115 TMJ #3995
    • Powder: Unique
    • Firearm: Glock 17
    • Use: range

    Any favorites would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    The load data you are looking for can be found in the newest Speer manual, #14.
    You can also find load data for that application on the Alliant Load Data Site since you are asking about Unique powder.

    Speer #13 gives a min of 5.6 Grs & a Max of 6.3 Grs of Unique with that bullet for 1166 & 1244 FPS when loaded at 1.135 O.A.L..

    No favorite with Unique, but it will work well. If you don't have a good manual, you really need one.

    Thanks for the input. Always good to hear from someone in the Keystone State (where I was born) and the Land of the Crimson Tide (where we lived the first year of our marriage).

    I knew the data would be in the Speer manual, but these components were supplied by a friend and Unique was what I had on the shelf to use up. I don't plan on doing anything else with Speer bullets in the near or distant future so I hesitated on spending the money on a new manual just for 1 recipe.

    Thanks again.

    I understand what you mean. Check the link I supplies above because Speer and Alliant are now both part of the same company. The only bullets they list on their site now are Speer bullets. I told you about them because both Unique and Speer bullets are on the same site.

    They list a charge of 6.3gr Unique under a 115gr GDHP bullet. That's the Max charge so reduce it by 10% to start and work your way up as usual. That data is in line with the data from Speer #13 which "Walkalong" posted. Don't forget to post a range report when you test that ammo...

    Sorry I can't post any favorites using Unique because I don't use Unique in the 9mm. I do use W231/HP-38 and Longshot for the 9mm but usually with a 124/125gr bullet.
