    Looking for a subsonic 9mm load to shoot through my CZ's.

    Need a recommendation on a bullet or bullets. I have plenty of W231, primers and brass.

    Load recipes?

    A 147 over 3.8 WW-231 is my standard loading and is pretty much full power yet stays in the 950 range out of a 3.5" barrel. They gain a little velocity out of a carbine length tube, but I think they'll still be subsonic and most 147's seem to shoot very accurately and you can even use cast with little worries about leading the barrel at this velocity level.

    My CZs like swaged and coated "Precision Bullets" 125 grain projectiles propelled to 1050 fps by 3.9gr of WST. Super accurate.

    If you are not opposed to polycoated bullets, I like 147 Gr RN (.356) from Eggleston Munitions with either 3.0 Gr of Titegroup or 3.3 Gr of Accurate #2. Both seated to 1.14 OAL. I get about 930 fps with TG and 940 fps with A#2 out of a 4.75" M&P 9 with a suppressor.

    I've loaded a few different brands and shapes of 147Gr over 3.5 gr of Win231. I've been thinking of bumping it up a little and I am glad to see RecoilBob's post above.

    My match load is a RMR 124 MPR JHP with 4.4gr of WSF @ 1.07
    Accurate for me.
    S+B SP, mixed range brass-unknown # of firings, 5" 9mm 1911
    ES and SD would be most likely be better with same brand brass.
    When I say mixed it could be 10 different brands:)
