Gold team 9 major

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. Tried the search feature and all I got was stuff about loading Montana GOLD bullets. Not a fan of the apps search feature but it's what I have to work with. Looking for a good ball park place to start and or pet loads for a 9 major gold team. V12 with the 2 port comp.

I have some 115s and a lot of 124s

Hoping to figure out what shoots best and make an order of either 115 or 124s.

 

8.5g silhouette under a 115g Montana gold ran great. Old load for a sti. I need to chrono the GT and see where I'm at.

I have silhouette, HS-6, AA7, WAC, and CFE.

Barrel has been reamed and I'm using 38 super mags so OAL doesn't have to be short. Thank you all!

I like the 124 gr bullets so I don't "sling" powder when reloading.

 

Been using c. 7 gr WAC at 1.16" - used to use c. 8 gr HS6 at 1.16".

 

For 115 gr bullets, you have to up that almost a grain of powder    :)

I don't shoot Open, but when I fantasize about it, I dream of 121gr JHP.  ;)

I have a Lee 122g mold that shoots really really well in 38 Super comp. I want to start powder coating soon but I don't have enough time to cast for much more than practice at the moment

It is not recommended to shoot coated or bare lead with a comp.

Montana Gold and Zero both make 121gr JHP.  I am pretty sure they just 115gr JHP with the hollowpoint cavities filled with lead.

6.8gr WAC, CCI MAG SPP, Mixed Brass, COL 1.150-1.165 depending on the gun and what feeds best.

124/5 gr PD, Everglades, or Bayou coated

If you shoot coated keep a 100 jacketed loaded and every once in a while run a mag of jacketed to blow the junk out of the comp.

Obviously check that the coated bullet isn't leaving lead in the BBL before you shoot the Jacketed. 

Found this to be the easiest way to clean the comp. No chiseling coating or lead out of it "IF" you're getting that.
