9mm cast/coated bullets

Recommended Posts

Experimenting with some 125 grain blue bullets in 9mm. Anyone have any experience with these? I have a good load worked up with HP-38 working on one with Accurate No5 and just picked up some Unique. So far I have found that you must put a good amount of bell on the case. These will be shot mostly in a Glock 19, S&W SD9VE and M&P 2.0 compact and will most like get shot from my dad’s hi power and shield.

I upped the charge of Accurate No. 5 and ended up with a very ni e load. Seems these bullets really like that powder.

It’s good to see someone using coated bullets in 9mm. I am working up a load using Alliant’s new Sport Pistol powder and Acme 124 gr. coated bullets. This powder was developed for coated bullets and references this bullet manufacture by name. I won’t get a chance to shoot them soon; but, when I do I will let you know how they do. 

I have loaded a similar bullet using Unique. I seem to recall a load around 4.5 grains. Don’t quote me and do your own research.

How much #5 are you using?

What diameter are they? I found some work well at .356 while others need to be .357 or .358 to get the best from them.

The cases do need more belling to keep from shaving the coating.

Using 5.0 grains of Accurate #5 and they are sized to .355. I just found 2 more companies I want to try DG bullets and Gallent bullets. Both are coated and and little cheaper than blue bullets. DG has a 1100 bullet quick ship box of 125 grain bullets for $68 shipped.

I have used some Acme Bullet Co. 45 acp bullets. 

I love their .215 gr SWC 45, also known as Bowling Pin bullets. 

They are "NOT" coated, hard cast lead, sized to .452".

Now having problems with Blue bullets lots they won’t pass the plunk test or fit my Lyman cartridge gauge. I have this problem since I started though I had it figured out but out of every 100 I have had anywhere from 4 to 12 fail. All that I have pulled measure.355 and the bras measures in spec. I experimented with seating depth and crimp and no crimp( normally don’t crimp 9mm). The one that pass shoot great just not sure what is happening here.

      I'm wanting to load some 300gn, hard cast, Hunter's Supply WFN bullets for my 5½" Ruger.
      I have Win296, IMR4227 & 2400 on hand, all of which I'm told are suitable powders. I'm really only wanting a load of around 1000-1100fps, so not stupid hot & heavy.
      I'm really REALLY struggling to find consistent data. Everything I have found is all over the place (literally I've seen minimum loads in one book that actually EXCEED the maximum load in another!) Lots of stuff for 240s & lots for jacketed 300s, but all I can find is forum data from 2012 & older. Not exactly trustworthy.........
      I'm really scratching my head. Can any if y'all help me here? Please feel free to PM data, if you're not comfortable doing it publicly.

      Need to re-stock .30cal carbine.
      2 options, same price, PPU or S&B?
      Have had excellent results with PPU.
      Also curious about Geco 9mm or a "cleaner" brand than WWB 124 NATO from WM.
      Burned through over 1200 rounds, no issues though it seems to leave a lot of residue and brass filings.
      Not particularly brand loyal with most 115/124 available for less than $.20/rouund.
      Thanks!

      What is the good or bad about these "NATO" loads?
      Any help is appreciated.
