WST LOAD for PCC

Recommended Posts

Just finished up my 1st PCC build with 9mm KAW valley 16" barrel, I have a 8lb jug of WST and a bunch of 125 grain Blue Bullets.Does anyone have experience with this combination? I have 9mm load with WST (minor) that I have used that is good in my STI 5", thinking about down loading it and starting at 3.3gr @ 1.120. Also have N320, CFE pistol  & AutoComp.

My book says 4.8grs of WST goes 1,025 out of a 5" pistol barrel, so you will have to drop that load a little.  I am not sure that 3.3 will be enough.  

 

When going super light, be careful not to stick a bullet in the barrel.  It may be safer to start with a load that is faster than your goal (while still way below max load) and work your way down.

Good point L9X25, my 5" STI with SVI barrel is 1001 FPS with 3.8gr WST 125 Blue B. 125 PF. Primers are a litte flat. Maybe all just chronometer few of these to get a baseline. Thinking primers mar get flatter. Definitely don't want one in the barrel !

I'm at 4.5gr. of WST with a 124gr jacketed bullet at 1.135"

This is in a Taccom ULW barrel.

Gives me 140 pf with minimal dot bounce.

I'm using 4.4 of WST with a 124gr lead roundnose @ 1.125 in a Yankee hill barrel. 

Accurate with minimal recoil.

That's an awfully big difference in PF wow!   Any new updates on that?   That 16" BARREL must be fast.

Seems way to light, I’d be afraid of squibs running that load.

Really depends on your barrel. I run 3.5gr with a 135 blue bullet and get about 133PF in my gun with 16" JP barrel. This load is about 142PF in my other 16" barrel.
