precision delta 124 jhp oal

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 I would like to load some precision delta 124 jhp that will work in all my 9mm guns (sti, glock, sig, springfield, cz, h&k, and Kimber) and need some help with the best oal to use for all these pistols.

 Thanks,

 Tim

Only YOU can answer that  ….

 

You really have to run The Plunk Test, with that bullet, in all seven of your guns,

and take the shortest.

 

Then, you have to see if that short round shoots well in all seven guns.

 

You might be well served with different OAL's for different guns - hard to tell

without testing them.

 

BUT, that's the fun of reloading.     :)

Precision Delta Factory loaded 9mm JHP is loaded to 1.10. 

This has proven to be a very universal length with PD 124 JHPs.

As said earlier PD load to 1.100, but in my testing I got better accuracy at 1.080". I have shot at that length for years and this is my goto bullet. Works in all my guns from 1911's to short chambered CZ's. Do a search for my name and you should see a spreadsheet with all my loadings.

Thanks for the replies.

 I just want to load some stuff for plinking and can be used in all the guns. For my competition guns I load long and it won't work in some of the pistols.

When the kids want to shoot, they want to try all the guns and it gets to be a pain figuring out which ammo fits what gun and I'm hoping to find a length that will work in them all and it will simplify things.

 Thanks again for the info and I'll try some at 1.100 and see how it works.

 Tim
