Trade only at this time. Will add cash for right item. I live between Franklin and Bellevue Must provide Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit and be willing to sign a bill-of-sale. Must be legal to own a firearm in the State of Tennessee. Will trade for: Heckler & Koch VP9SK Smith & Wesson 2.0 Compact 9mm Ruger PC Carbine CZ 452 American in .22 LR Walnut CZ 455 American in .22 LR Walnut Remington 700 in .243 Winchester
  3. I appreciate the input. Would you suggest a slower powder for a coated lead bullet. I find Alliant Blue Dot and Hodgdon CFE Pistol on the shelves where I shop. Do you have experience with these? Tgtmaster
  4. I may wait until I get my hands on Alliant Sport Pistol. I have not found any locally. Alliant posts load data for this specific bullet (Acme Bullet). Has anyone used Sport Pistol yet? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you noylj. I especially appreciate the comment regarding hotter loads giving poor accuracy. Are the lead bullets you are using coated?
  6. I am sorry about the delay responding. I have been out. This is very helpful information. I currently load a 124 gr. JHP with 5.2 gr. of Unique . This load chronographed 1,100 fps from my VP9. The limited amount of load data I have been able to find so far ranges from 4.1 gr. to 6.0 gr. of Unique with a 124 gr. lead bullet. Your 4.3 gr. load sounds like a good load. I have another 1,000 JHP I need to shoot-up before I load this bullet. When I do, I think I will load up 10 each of 4.0, 4.1, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 gr. for the chronograph and accuracy testing. I shoot both traditional rifling handguns and a couple of Kahr's and a VP9 with polygonal rifling. I hope to use this bullet for both types of barrels. I appreciate you taking the time to respond in such detail. It may be this winter before I get around to this. I wanted to shoot with my daughter today; but, it was too hot. We will try again soon.
  7. Hello forum! Does anyone have a favorite 9 mm load using a 124 gr. lead cast coated bullet and Unique? I am looking at the ACME Bullet version. Any 124 gr. or 125 gr. coated lead cast bullet data would help.I know I'm old school using Unique. I have a good stock of it and I like it in my .38 Special, .44 Special and .45 ACP. http://www.acmebullet.com/bullets-reloading-brass/9MM-Lead-Cast-Reloading-Bullets?product_id=424

  11. Thanks to everyone for your input.  I have been getting some advice from the Cast Boolits forum.  Not so much load examples as loading technique.  My RCBS seater mangles the nose of the bullet.  I stopped loading after a few rounds.  Advice so far is to increase my bell to accommodate the softer bullet (I have only loaded FMJ's so far) and try using a 9mm seater (in the attempt to find a seater shape that more closely matches the bullet).  I will provide feedback when I get a chance to load and shoot.     leroy,   Thank you for the load information.  I had been using 4.0 gr. of Unique under a 95 gr. JHP.  I planned on starting at 3.6 gr. (-10%) and work my way up.  Since these are coated, I think I should be able to increase past 3.6 grains depending on signs of pressure, slide function and accuracy.   tgtmaster

    AR Lowers

    Can anyone recommend a brand you have had good luck with? Buying a matching upper and lower sounds like a good idea. Is it necessary? tgtmaster

    I have shot both. They are both wonderful guns. I purchased the VP9 for the trigger and accuracy. It fits me. My personal preference. I don't think you can go wrong either way. tgtmaster
  14. I just ordered some SNS Cast Bullets for .380 ACP:   95 grain Lead Round Nose - Polymer Coated   Does anyone have experience loading this bullet?  If so, what have been your results?  Would you share your load data with me?  The powder I primarily use is Unique.   I have been shooting a 95 gr. FMJ bullet.  I anticipate reducing that load by 10% with this Molly Coated bullet unless someone has better data.     I have had good luck shooting Molly Coated Bullets in my .45 ACP and decided to give these a try.   Thank you!
