    Jacketed? Lead? Shape? Firearm to be used?What powders/loads are working so far for you?

    FWIW I am NOT a competition shooter and strive for only MOD (Minute of Dead) accuracy, which I get from every load I've built to date. I have a remarkable firearm collection. Every one is more accurate than I am - lol

    RnadyP,

    You sound like me. I work for the most accurate load (at 25 yards) in any caliber. What do you have in the 125-147 grain hard cast category for 9mm?

    For me, 2.8-3.0gns Bullseye and a Missouri 147 LSWC work exceptionally well in my CZ; so does 3.8-4.0 grains of WW231 and a 125 grain hard cast "ball" from MB. Interested in what loads you have and what you're shooting it out of.

    I have a bunch of loads that don't work worth a toot.

    I like 125gr LRN with either 3.5gr titegroup or 3.5gr bullseye. Both are very accurate loads in my sigma.

    9mm

    The 125 grain small ball from Missouri Bullet using 4.0 grains of Winchester 231 works well in my 9's.

    I load only plated or jacketed (local indoor LGS range rules) and use Win 231 (AKA HP-38). I stay at the low-mid range of the manuals and the Hodgdon website.

    I don't 100% trust my typing/proofreading enough to ever post actual data - lol - nor have I enough faith to follow anyone else's.

    I load 125 grain Dardas Hard Cast LRN over 3.5 grains of Bullseye.
    Works fine for both of my 9mm's.
    Matter of fact made some this morning.

    I've had good results with 124 cast TC from 'mastercastbullets' over Red Dot, just mid-range practice loads, clean burning. cheap too the primer is the most costly part.

    5.8 Unique velocities in the 1180s. Nothing fancy and no exotic powders but delivers consistent extreme spread and is as good as the factory 25 meter target that came with the gun.

    "Nice": Montana Gold 124JHP/CMJrn, bullet color matches case and shoots accurately out of a 75B over 4.2 grs of n320, also work fine with 231 at stronger loads. If 'silver bullets' are deadly, then 'gold' should be great.

    "Accurate(consistant)": I can vouch for both the above out to 25yds but expect they'll reach much further with proportionate consistancy.

    I've had great results lately in a Beretta 92SF with a 125gr Lead bullet that fits the groove diameter, and 3.7 or 3.8gr 231. The Beretta 92SF must be clean and well lubricated, but I've never seen anything shoot as well.

    I've just settled on 4.9 grains of Ramshot Silhouette under a Zero 125 gr. JHP. It averages about 1050 fps out of my CZ 85.
