Hello everyone! I've been lurking for a while and have found so much good information. I need some help so here I am. I am in need of load data for 9MM 125 Gr. JHP made by Zero Bullets using IMR 700X powder. I am shooting a Glock 19 and 34.I shoot IDPA one to two times month and practice at the range once or twice a month. I am a new re-loader and have recently finished my first 1,000 rounds of Berry's 115 Gr. RN using Auto Comp and things went really well. I wanted to switch it up a bit and try 125 Gr. JHP. I found the load data in the Lyman's manual and moved forward and purchased 1,000 Zero 125 Gr. JHP's. Here is my problem: I found load data in the Lyman's 49th edition that lists 125 Gr. JHP using 700X Lyman lists starting load at 3.8 and max at 4.2. with a COL of 1.075 I loaded 3 of each starting at 3.7 all the way through 4.2. I went to the range and started with the 3 rounds of 4.0 and it seemed like it was way too much. After shooting the 18 test rounds, including the 3.7 which was below the starting load of 3.8, and even they cycled perfectly and all of them seemed way to strong..Although I am new to reloading, I have been shooting 9MM for a really long time and something didn't seem right. I went home and have been scowering the internet looking for data.I have called Hogdgon twice and left messages.I have found on the Hodgdon site some good info, but I am still not certain. They say jacketed bullets can be loaded just like JHP- still confused- but Hodgdon shows load data for 700X using the Hornady 125 Gr. HAP Hornady Action Pistol which is supposed to be identical to the Hornady 125 Gr. XTP JHP. Hodgdon load data says starting load for the 125 Gr. HAP is 2.9 to 3.4 with COL 1.069 Although I am new, that seems like a huge difference from the Lyman's manual. The data for the 125 Gr. HAP of 2.9 to 3.4 is much more likely than the info from Lyman's of 3.8 to 4.2. I am only basing this on my very limited re-loading experience and I am hoping that someone here can help me figuring out the right load data. Thank you in advance for any help.
Anyone have FRESH loading data for Bayou 160's in .38 Short Colt ? I have the following Powders available at the moment: VVN320, WSF, WST, 700X, Clays, & Universal Clays. I'd like to chrono at 128-130 PF for USPSA Revolver Division. Been shooting 3.2 gn. of 700X for a while and it's blowing the Poppers down just fine, but the gun is filthy after one Match. I'm open for load recommendations using the Powders I currently have on hand. As you know, Powder is a rare commodity these days.
