9mm MG 124gr FMJ - OAL and powder

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Well, I'm out of N320 and I have to make about 4K rounds for an upcoming tactical class. These will be primarily shot through a Beretta M9, but what I don't use will be run through a G19 or CZ SP01.

Which of the three powders should I go with? I have Bullseye, Blue Dot, and Clays. I also have Unique, but I think only a couple pounds.

What is a good OAL for the MG 124 FMJ's? I just got these as well. Had been using Zero 125 JHP's. Thanks

Tom

Clays is used quite a bit for 9. Do a search. I and many others load 124 MG around 1.14 give or take. Hope this helps.

Clays or Bullseye will work fine. I don't think Blue Dot will do much for you.

1.143 is what I use for MG 124 CMJ [4.1 Titegroup - WSP - PF131][4.8 WSF - WSP - PF129]

Well, tried some of the loads today.

Weapon - Beretta M9

Chrono Dist, 15ft

Temp 80 degrees

Cases - Mixed

Powder - Clays 3.7gr

Primer - WSP

Bullet - MG 124gr fmj

OAL - 1.14

10 shots - Hi 1034, Lo 1000, Avg 1021, SD 9.9 ES 34, MAD 7.4

Power Factor - 126.6

Notes - Soft shooting, pressure signs from primer, would not lock the slide back on the last shot. Factory recoil spring @ about 2K rounds

Cases - Mixed

Powder - N320 4.3gr

Primer - Rem 5 1/2

Bullet - MG 124gr fmj

OAL - 1.14

10 shots - Hi 1083, Lo 1053, Avg 1064, SD 10 ES 29.9, MAD 7.9

Power Factor - 131.9

I shot 100 rds of the Clays load. Too much signs of pressure to try and bump it up anymore.

It appears I have about 2lbs of N320 left. I think I'll just load as many as I can from that and try to get some more. Thanks for everyones help.

Hello: You may have to load for the CZ a little shorter. I would take the barrel out and use it as a chamber gauge. Thanks, Eric
