    Anyone have data for the 9pm 125 gr swc? Or do I use the same as the lead rn load, which for me is 4.3 gr

    I'm using win 231 powder and mixed head stamp brass

    Load to a good, reasonable OAL with that charge, and you are all set... But, you might consider dropping a few tenth's, and go from their as well since you are using a different component from what you used before.

    With a 124/125gr lead bullet I charge 4.0gr W231. You can go as high as 4.4gr W231 with a COAL of somewhere around 1.125" depending on the bullet profile. The 4.0gr load works well for me and is quite accurate but if you're using the ammo in a pistol with a very heavy slide you might need a stiffer charge.

    This is not a recomendation to do so but I've gone as high as 4.9g HP-38 with MB 125g LRN at OAL 1.06 in my CZ-75B with out issue or pressure signs. Velocity was 1159 but it leaded too much for me.

    After lots of testing with my CZ I ended up using 5.6g AA#5, very accurate in my pistol with minimal leading. AVG-1069 ES-18.46 SD-6.24
