145 gr Bayou RN with N320 powder

Recommended Posts

Anyone have experience with this bullet / powder combination in 16" 9mm PCC? I just tried 2.5 gr @1.100 OAL which resulted in a very quiet and soft load which runs well in my gun. I haven't had a chance to chrono yet but I'm shooting Steel Challenge with this so power factor won't matter.

should be good, it's a very low amount of power for N320.  
But as long as your gun cycles, I don't see a problem.

My old steel challenge load:
xtreme 147gr
2.5gr titegroup/2.7gr N320
1.135" OAL

Currently run the same load for USPSA & Steel Challenge
xtreme 147gr
2.8gr titegroup/3.0gr N320
1.135" OAL

I tried my pistol load which is a 147 grain BBI with 3.3 grains of N320 in my GMR-15 with the 14.5" barrel.   It was virtually identical to my 5" pistol.  Somewhere around 910 FPS.  The N320 burns up within the first half of the barrel for sure.

What about 124 gr loads? Anyone using those using Extreme plated bullets?

 

How do they compare to the heavier bullet?
