I shoot for 115 grain FMJ 5.2 grains COL 1.135. Feels a little less than 115 grain winchester white box. Cycles the gun fine. I've shot 5.0 grains still cycles the gun. But it is a powder puff load. crimp on both were .371. both worked fine in Glock 26 and 17. No flash out of both guns.

Is your brass that thin, or isn't 0.371 kind of overdoing the crimp? Last time I measured some 9mm brass, it was around 0.011.

9 MM 124 Grain Bullet using Winchester WST powder.

In the Hornady Abridged Edition " HORNADY HANDBOOK OF CARTRIDGE RELOADING " published in 1997 page 174 gives the following information for reloading 9MM Luger using WIN WST powder. I searched everywhere for this information and guess what it was right on my bench! Hope this clears up some mystery and gives valuable loading information as needed.

Hornady #3556 FMJ-FP (Full Metal Jacket Flat Point) C.O.L.- 1.050".........Ballistic Coefficient .174

Hornady #3557 FMJ-RN (Full Metal Jacket Round Nose) C.O.L.- 1.150"........Ballistic Coefficient .145

Hornady #3567 LRN (Lead Round Nose) C.O.L. 1.090" .........Ballistic Coefficient .131

Using WIN WST the following loads apply:

4.8 GR. @ 1025 FPS

5.0 GR @ 1050 FPS

5.2 GR @ 1075 FPS

5.4 GR @ 1100 FPS (MAXIMUM LOAD)
