Oh well, thanks guys. Now, I wonder if Barnes and Noble sells reloading manuals...
Most gun stores sell them. You can also download the one from Ramshot, and other powder manufacturers also have downloads or they will send you one in the mail (I think they are free for the most part). I use the Lyman book all the time, also have various ones from Hornady, Speer, etc.,

The ABC's of Reloading is also a must have for your reloading bench.

Do you use the factory crimp die in your reloading?

Duno, but your load is off according to Ramshot.

Ramshot has load data for 124gr LRN bullets with Silhouette.

Here.

Code:
Silhouette 124 LC RN 4.2 974 5.0 1,096 34,644 1.050

Soumds exactly like ujder powered loads. I typically start at the halfway between minimum and maximum for a given bullet powder combination.

I like to work my way up or down depemding on needing target ammo or full powered rounds until im just under or over the powder dispensers charge weight varience for a given powder.

I call it charge weight varience since aome dispensers will throw a plus minus of .1 to .2 or more weight. I will fudge for safety that max varience so i dont go over or under min max

Your load is too light for the handgun. Increase your charge by a few tenths and fire for effect. Since I work up target loads using a machine rest I typically start low to see at what point the firearm does not function properly. With too light of a load that typically means failing to eject or fail to chamber. I would not recommending changing out the recoil spring.
