I loaded some 9mm with power pistol yesterday and it shot great. The start load was 5.1 and I stopped at 5.5 grains working up with Montana Gold bullets.
The only reason I stopped going higher was it felt snappy and I was wanting a target load. Curiosity has me wanting to try more powder ?
Where are you guys with this combo ?

PS I searched and looked didn't see anything.....

I'm shooting ~4.0gr of Titegroup behind mine. Mellow as hell, no issues cycling, and they all go bang.

No 124 gr data, but I did work up some Sierra 130 gr FMJRN 9mm loads with Power Pistol.

I worked up from 5.2 grs to 5.7 grs of PP, using Win cases.

The 5.7 gr load was very accurate in my CZ85, so I didn't go higher.

I used 1.12 for my OAL.

My notes show I got the loading data from Sierra 5.

Good luck

I load 5.6 and 6 with a precetion delta 124fmj. 6 is a little snappy. I looked at 125gr load data started low and worked my way up.

6 grains under a 124gr Rainier FP drives it to 1150 FPS average from my CZ-75B.

6.8 under a 115gr Berry's RN drives it to 1237 FPS average from the same gun.

It also cycled a Finnish KP-44 much faster and more consistently than Wolf.

Zero pressure signs.


ETA: Will be trying a heavier 124gr load in the future. I believe Alliant's data goes to 6.4 under a 124gr. Gold Dot. A Gold Dot would be loaded considerably shorter, and thus typically operate at higher pressures, than a RN bullet of similar construction would.

Thanks for the replies. I was wanting to shoot some heavier loads and report back but didn't make it out yet.
Chris are them Rainiers copper washed bullets or jacketed? I have a ton of the washed ones that I want to load next. Do you use the lead data with them also?
Thanks Ed

Reload with confidence.

I have loaded to MAX OAL with considerably more powder than that & it was safe in my custom Glock race gun. In fact I loaded 124s past 1330 FPS with Power Pistol. Reason: the rules required it (USPSA Major). Without a reason to load that hot though, you should do as I say & not as I do. Don't do it!

I use 5.7 grains of Power Pistol behind 124 grn FMJ and it works well. Very mild, cycles a Glock 17, Sig P226 and Beretta 92FS with no problems.
