Are the 9mm bullets plain lead? If so they are SOFT swaged lead and not worth a damn for most 9mm applications. They have a dry lube on them from the factory so you do not need to add any other lube.
A tip for loading these bullets; Load as slow as you can and still get the gun to function. Load as long as you can and still fit in the magazine. Lead bullets in 9mm seem to respond well to grabbing rifling as soon as possible after leaving the case. 9mm gets up to speed pretty quickly. The method I have found is to load them very near max oal.
Go with the newer data on any powder. Powders evolve and the data must evolve with it.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
