Xtreme plated bullets over SR7625 - suggested load?


G19

Recommended Posts

Used up all my lead bullets and switching to some Xtreme copper plated 147gr bullets. Powder is IMR SR7625. With 147gr lead bullets, I've been using 3.3gr in my M&P9L using a COAL of 1.145".

In the Hogdon online reloading data, the only load shown for SR7625 with 147gr bullets is for 147gr Hornady XTP bullets (starting load of 2.8gr, max load of 3.3gr). Not sure how the XTP bullets compare to the Xtreme plated and how I should adjust for that.

Anyone using this combination of bullet and powder?

I just chrono'ed some 147 gr acme coated FP bullets yesterday over 3.7gr of 7625. Averaged 959 FPS/140 PF out of my XDM 5.25. Good accuracy, soft and clean. I usually load 147gr lead at 3.4 gr of 7625, that usually averages right at a 130 PF. Plated bullets usually load pretty similar to lead.

Thanks Dave, that gives me a sense of where to start. :cheers:
