For what use? I load for accuracy, so--
9x19: Power Pistol
Then, Silhouette, True Blue, BE-86, WSF, AA5 and about 50 other powders.
I find fast powders are not that accurate in 9x19 (<2" at 25...

Average them? Remember, the lowest max load produced the same pressure as the highest max load, using the lot numbers of components each test facility used.
You almost certainly don't have any of...

>Interesting that they have a cannelure to avoid bullet setback
A cannelure to prevent set-back is done to the case. Unless the case is roll-crimped into the bullet, a bullet cannelure can not...

The question wouldn't be why a cannelure, but is the round taper or roll crimped.
The cannelure can be for roll crimping (for .45 Colt) or for expansion control or something else. The concern should...

That may be true, in some absolute sense, but does it matter to the rifle? I have not found ANY reduction in average group size by worrying that all...

Your gun is not going to sense a 0.008" difference. The only thing that could effect accuracy is crimp consistency, and I have never found there to be any measureable difference in average group size...

Going with the highest starting load is not the best way to go. There is no best manual. They all test pressures per SAAMI procedures, so they are all correct—for their test gun and lot numbers of...

1) M-die is NOT needed. It can help, however.
2) Most commercial bullets are too hard—18-22 BHN, where 9-13 BHN is all that is needed.
3) For hard bullets, fit is more critical. I would try 0.002"...

Since you have a MAX load, you always reduce it by 10-12% for a start load. This mean that you SHOULD be starting at 11.7gn.
I always check multiple sources and start with the LOWEST STARTING load I...

It depends. The FMJ is the mass-produced, "slam 'em out and ship 'em" bullets. The JHPs, on the other hand, represent years and decades of design and testing and adjustment costs that are made more...

I prefer ONLY 200gn L-SWCs in ALL my .45 Autos. I don't mind snap up/snap down. The sights return on target. If not a 200gn L-SWC, it would be 185gn JHPs.

2) Use a 147gn bullet and load down until gun just cycles (or get a lighter recoil spring)

Some are tumbled in micro-fine mica so they don't stick to each other. This is fine to load as-is.
If dirt, you wipe them off with a rag. Or, you melt them all down and cast your own.

Any lead-core jacketed bullet will use the same loading data. COL needs to be adapted for each bullet and you ALWAYS start with the lowest starting load and work up.
