Default 9mm load assessment?

I will be changing over press to load 9mm soon and would like some feedback on my load recipe.

124 gr. Pdc rn fmj
4.0 gr. Titegroup
1.090 oal
Cci 500 spprimers

Am i safe to start? This seems like a place to start with all the varying opinions and book data. Your thoughts. Will be using out of a Browning Hi-Power practical.
Thanks before hand

Should be a good load. And yes, I KNOW I am a nag on this- but unless you KNOW who you are talking to on the Interwebz, for load data, ask for referral to a powder or bullet makers website load data.

Like this- Cartridge Loads - Hodgdon Reloading Data Center - data.hodgdon.com

While we have a pretty good forum here, there are folks I would not trust to give me the time of day- and it can be difficult to identify them right away.

Point well taken, thats why i get a lot of data and feel confident that after assessing all views i can come up with a pretty good concensus that is a safe and reliable load. Thanks for the feedback.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I show this as a starting load in some manual, so that is good
I note that 3.6-3.8gn is a recognized "accurate" load for many.
