Can someone please double check my load data.

I'm reloading 9mm luger cases using Winchester WST ball powder, bullet is 147 gr JHP.

SL is 4.0 grs, max load is 4.3 grs.

Is this correct?

Thanks,

Curt

It is my belief that you should not be reloading anything unless you have the needed information readily available to reference. This is a matter of safety.

I have read the ABC's of reloading and Modern Reloading 2nd Edition by Richard Lee.

There was tons of info and data but none specific to the WSF propellant.

The info I got was from the Hogdon website above.

I just wanted a second opinion that's all.

Thanks for the help.

Actually, I was mistaken it was not from the website above it was this one: http://www.wwpowder.com/
type in the bullet, propellant, and caliber and it gives you the load data.

The Hodgdon site above doesn't cover the WSF propellant either.
