45PlottHound Posted December 26, 2011 Share Posted December 26, 2011 I received my 124gr JHP MG bullets Saturday. Now I have a few question.I plan on using these for both 9mm, P226 and XDM for general shooting , and 38S, for my EAA Witness Match. Currently I am using Power Pistol in my 9mm 115 loads, 5.6rg at 1.100" COAL. Starting with the 38S, I noticed that most people are loading them long. It is my understanding that the MG is very close in dimension to the Hornady XTP of similar size. The Hornady 7th edition lists a COAL of 1.210, I made up a few at 6.2gr at this length. They feed fine in my EAA,I know at 1.265 Winchester 130gr factory jams in the magazine. It seem likes most people are loading around 1.260+ with a similar slug. I am working up a load for the 9mm, same powder, and found similar information here. It seems a lot of people are loading 1.100+ and the manual lists 1.060" COAL. Any information would be helpful.
