I have the following powders:

TiteGroup
IMR 4064
W 231
H110
Unique

I want to load 147 gr lead projectiles. Not quite round nose but close. They have a lube band.

I want to shoot them from a 16" 9mm AR.

May I please have some recommendations?

around 3.5 to 4.0 of W 231 will do it

Thank you so much. It is my habit to load no higher than a mid range not accepting a variance of more than .1 gr either way.

I wouldn't be loading these except I bought 1000 of these for $25 OTD from a gun shop that was relocating and didn't want to move them.

just don't go to light. In a 16 inch 9mm the bullet is usually slowing down in the barrel past about 10 inches or so. Most powders are completely burnt by then. Go too low and one may not make it out of the barrel.

Only 2 powder in list really suffice, that be 231, and Titegroup.. Unique may get some more velocity with long barrel

I was going to suggest using Unique first. Right around 4.4 gr. should be max. Alliants really pushing BE86 right now, so data from them for anything else can be difficult to find.
