Do I have a load?!?!?
ok, I reload commercially so here is what we use. 200 gr semi wadcutter over 4.8-5.4 gr of 231. Seat the bullet so the shoulder is 1mm (a thumbnail thickness) out of the case. I have been reloading 4.8 of 231 since 1987 and it works great in my GLOCK (warranty is now VOID!) and Springfield 1911. You can also use 4.8 231 in a 9mm with a 115 grain bullet. Both loads will shoot better than most people can shoot! Load the 115 9mm FMJ to 1.120 inches over all length and you will be fine. I only shoot lead in my handguns as it is easier to clean. Try Space Coast bullets for your lead. I get mine custom cast for our company by an old guy in Florida...he only makes them for my boss and they are the BEST in the USA! I load 124 lead in my 9mm over 3.9 gr of 231 or 3.6 gr of AA#2. Am trying to develop a load using Universal powder.....
There are no accidents, there is only ignorance, mechanical failure, or "ACTS OF GOD"! I load 3000-5000 rounds a day, 6 days a week!
