Sammy, I don't use lead bullets or either powder, but there is quite a bit

written in the files here about which powders to use, and recipes, for

9mm minor loads with 124 gr lead bullets :cheers:

Sammy,

I use 125 gr LRN and I start with 3.2 gr Titegroup, and tried up to 3.8 gr. Though I have not used a Chrono to check for Velocity and Power Factor, b I liked the accuracy and recoil @ 20 yds loading 3.4 gr for my CZ 85 Combat. 3.6 gr is also close to the accuracy and recoil. OAL about 1.1"

Since you are using 124 gr, try a starting load of 3.2 gr, 5 rounds at a time and work your way up. Do not exceed recommended max load by the manufacturer.

Safe shooting!

Same here... 4.5 Gr. gives me about 1,060 FPS out of a XDM 4.5

You may wish to stay away from any lead bullet bullet used in combination with Titegroup powder. This combination produces a tremondous amount of smoke and earns the shooter some interesting nicknames from fellow shooters. :closedeyes:

My first relaods for 9mm were this combo, but not coated. Talk about smoke! I didn't realize until I went to shoot a match where it wasn't as breezy and a bit more humid. CHOOO CHOOO! It was streaks of smoke with each shot. Obscuring targets at any static location to a minor but embarrassing level! Ugh, just the memory brings back the feelings of shame. CHOOO CHOOO!!!! :blush:
