9mm minor with HS6

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking around 6.6g of HS6 under a 125g Blue bullet.

4.5" barrell and no popple holes. Looking for approx 130-140 pf for steel and steel challenge.

It's a dedicated steel gun now.

My limited data with that powder in 9mm Minor was 6.9gr with 115gr MG CMJ bullet, producing PF of 140 in Glock 17. In Glock 17C the same load produced PF of 135.

Based on this I would start somewhere in the 6.0gr range and work it up. Blue Bullets fly noticeably faster than the MG's.

6.6 should get you real close to what you want. I hope you are prepared for quite a bit of smoke. HS-6 will definitely be smoky.

HS-6 is dirtier, but softer shooting.

If you want to use WAC, then try 5.2gr, it gives me PF of 135 with PD bullets.

However, I use a lot of HS-6 in my Open gun and it does not really smoke.

I use 6.8g 115 RMR and it's not smokey but dirty. Rifle primers. 140 PF. Great for steel but thinking of upping the PF for better dot tracking.

I was playing with some HS6 yesterday, looking for major 9. Chrono was about 7ft away.

at 6.3gr under 124gr xtp COL: 1.13" was getting 1210ft/s giving me 150ish pf.

Granted, I'm using a XTP not a Blue.

Shot through a Czechmate in open config.

I'm not suggesting any load, just sharing some information I got yesterday.
