bmgm37 Posted December 31, 2011 Share Posted December 31, 2011 So after years of not loading 9mm, I now have a beretta 92 a glock 17 and glock 26 that I need to start reloading for. I loaded up years ago a bunch of rounds using the components listed in the subject line for a AR15 9mm carbine and used a load of 6.3 gr that functioned great in the gun. I have tried this load in all 3 guns and it is obviously to light and I am getting jams and stovepipes about every 5-8 rounds and many of the brass is just clearing the ejection port. So I go to the Accurate website and download the latest manual, look up #5 with 115 FMJ and it shows a starting load of 5.4 and a max of 6.3 ??? I dig out my original Accurate loading guide Vol 1 and looking up the same load it shows starting load of 6.3 and a max of 7.0 ! Has #5 changed so much over the years that it is weaker than the old 8lb jug I have or is this the Lawyers talking. I will be working up a load for my pistols, but my original load was the starting years ago where it is now the maximum which is obviously under powered. Also if anybody has some load info to share with this combination, that would be great. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
