9mm major 147's

Recommended Posts

Anyone had any success with a 147g 9mm major round? 

Shot some Atlanta factory stuff, pretty neat.  Want to replicate.

I've done it.  It wasn't amazing to shoot.  6.6gr of HS-6 behind a 147gr RN plated bullet made major, but it was sharp in the hand.

Heck back in the old days we shot 160's

just stay with the gassy powders to work the comp as much as possible

Tried it and stayed with 121's. I know someone who has been shooting it for a while and likes it.

For me, 147s don't allow enough powder to work my comp.  Neither do 124s for that matter, at least to my satisfaction.  I'm happiest with a 115 HAP over 10.3gr Major Pistol powder.

Do you find it challenging loading 10.3 gr, powder spillage??

No.  Very little powder spills.  MP is very fine grained and does not fill the case up to the top.  In fact, the 115 HAP loaded to 1.161" OAL doesn't even compress the powder.

From Midsouth Shooters Supply.  They often offer boxes of 3000 bulk packed for $280.

Indeed we did.  Ah, the good old days.

Planning on using it in a comped gun ?   Or, No Comp ?
