125gr Leatherhead RN, Titegroup 3.7gr, Federal 100 or Winchester SP, 1.125" OAL

 

This Titegroup recipe is soft, and Titegroup meters exceptionally evenly.  3.7 on every throw, even with just a standard Dillon powder bar.  At only 3.7gr per round, Titegroup makes your powder money last a long time.

3.4 gave me 134 PF.  Loading 1.125.    Going to chrono again tomorrow. Drop down to a 10 lb recoil spring felt good right back on target.

Curious as to what you use to load 9mm minor. I've used solo 1000 for a lot of years with good results. Now that I'm almost out and can't find it, I' looking for a replacement.
 
I use shilouette. 124grn 9mm. Shoots way soft in my open gun

I'm using Tightgroup with coated bullets and HP-38 for Jacketed. 

3.8 gr Tightgroup behind Bayou 120 TCG @ 1.060, .3785 crimp on all my 9mm's.

4.3 gr HP-38 behind Precision Delta 124 JHP @ 1.085, also use 4.8 N340 and 5.4 Power Pistol with same bullet.

Power factor is 130 to 142 with these loads and very accurate (less than 1.5" at 15 yds 10shots)

WST - too Temp sensative (any Winchester powder)

Titepoop _ too hot and dirty and snappy, Not bulky enough

IMR 7625 Temp sensative, less than WST though- but discontinued ( but I have 24lbs)

Solo 1000 - discontinued

 

VV N320 BEST. Not Temp sensative, negligable lot to lot variation, good bulk. Not smokey, Meters extremely well. 4.2 to 4.3 Grains with a 124 CMJ grain Montana Gold bullet OAL 1.135. 3.5 to 3.6 grains with a 135 grain Bayou Bullet or SNS casting OAL 1.135. 3.2 to 3.3 grains with 147 Grain flat point Bayou bullet OAL 1.135. 3.5 to 3.7 Grains with a 147 CMJ Montana Gold bullet OAL 1.135. Use the lower end for a Gen 3 G34 and the upper end for an STI Edge 9mm. All these loads make a 130 to 132 PF.

 

The point is, when you find a powder that you like, buy a shit ton, and stick with it. Focus more on shooting and less on reloading.
