imhntn Posted August 20, 2010 Share Posted August 20, 2010 I DQ'd the Area 5 this summer for low power with my 9mm. I was shooting 147 gr cast bullets with 3.4 gr of Solo 1000 and at home it was getting 128 pf but at the match only 121 pf. I bought a new chrono M2 to make sure I had an accurate one and have just had time to check loads the last few days. I also bought a new electronic scale to check and make sure my beam type was correct. I loaded 10 rds each at 3.6, 3.7, 3.8 and 3.9. OAL is 1.120" and I am using Federal small pistol primers. The best I could get with the 3.9 gr load was an average of 861 fps which is only a 126 pf and I want to go up to around 135 to be safe and not dq again. The temps here when I was shooting were in the mid 90's. Any ideas? How much Solo 1000 can I load and not be too much? Should I change powders? I am using a CZ SP-01 Shadow by the way. My son is shooting a Glock 34 and getting 138 pf with 3.6 gr of Solo 1000. I am getting frustrated and probably will change powders but I just do not know if I got a bad batch of Solo or what? Help!
