    I am thinking about casting my own bullets in the future. I currently have a Beretta M9 with a AAC Ti-Rant suppressor. Will a hard cast boolit with a gas check work or will there still be too much leading in the supressor? Thanks much.

    What load data are you using for a 38Spl bullet in a 9mm?

    I thnk it is generally not recommended to used lead bullets, even with gas checks. You may retard the leading with a gas checked bullet, but you may also find the gas checks separating from the bullets due to the disrupted gases that will occur before the bullet exits the suppressor, and they may damage the suppressor if they do.

    oneounceload,

    This is were I am coming up with the load. It would have to be sized of course. 3 gr of Bullseye. That makes sense with the gas check.

    The devil is in the details when reading reloading data.

    You might notice the Lyman load is for a 158 Round-Nose bullet.
    Not a semi-wadcutter.

    I do not believe you can seat a 158 SWC short enough in a 9mm case to get it to miss the rifling and chamber.

    The base of the bullet will go past the beginning of the case wall taper and bulge the case when seated short enough to chamber.
    Then it won't chamber because of the bulged case.

    You can with a round nose due to the round nose ogive missing the rifling at a longer OAL length.

    I see. Thanks much. Now that I think about it there is no point in really loading sub-sonic if I am not going to use the round with the suppressor. Any good suggestions for a M9?

    I think that I will just end up going with 147 plated bullets.

    Thanks for your help everyone. I got way ahead of myself. I am currently out at work and got a little bored. I have just ordered the Lyman 49th Edition Handbook, Lee Precision Modern Reloading 2nd Edition New Format, and the The ABCs Of Reloading: The Definitive Guide for Novice to Expert.

    good choices. everybody should have lyman and lee (if you can get past lee's promoting of their products. once you do, there is some really good info in there, and I really like the load data presentation) ABC's is pretty good for a starter book.
