    Anyone using Winchester WST for 9mm loads? I'd like to load some 115 FMJ and 125 cast RN, but haven't found much load data. Anyone use this?

    It's really not a good choice for this type of cartridge. Several of the Enos Forum boys have tried and given up.
    The pressure curve is too abrupt- the line between good and explosion is too narrow.
    Stick to WSF- it's Winchester's solution to the question. It works.

    Not a good choice. After much expermentation, Silhouette is my choice.

    115 gr plated RN over 6.2 ge Silhouette = 1165 fps in my BHP.
    147 gr plated RN over 4.3 gr Silhouette = 870 fps in a Glock 19.
    Not real hot loads as you can see, but accurate and reliable.
