125 gr moly's with PB and WST

Recommended Posts

I picked up a pound of PB and was curious to see what people have been using for loads? Research so far has shown 4.0-4.1 gr? Also WST for same bullet maybe having it at 4.4? All out of a 34. And yes they will be chrono'd.

I found that 4.1g of PB barely made power factor at all, and that was with coated bullets. But going higher wasn't an option, because it was already a compressed load with a COAL of 1.155". Bear in mind that the die was actually set to 1.145", but there was too much powder for it to seat that short with the PB.

However, 3.6g-3.7g of PB with a 147g bullet has become my match load of choice these days.

Thanks for the response even though that news sucks. I had heard it was kind of a sleeper powder. Guess i will have to eventually get some 147's.

4.4 gr. WST and 124 gr. Blue Bullet (@ 1.150" COAL) runs 1070 fps from a 5" 1911 and a (4") BHP/P-35 runs 1040 fps.
