9x18 Makarov

Although I've been an avid reloader for 25 plus years, I've only just begun reloading for this caliber.

I realize that loaded surplus ammo is relatively inexpensive and fairly plentiful, but I like reloading as a hobby.

I have a few different manuals on hand as well as several different powders that I could use, but I'm looking for input from experienced reloaders. I'd like to develop a warm-ish load with a 95 grain jacketed or plated bullet that would consistently register 1100 - 1125 fps (or so) on my chronograph.

For starters, I ordered 100, 90 gr. Speer Gold Dots and 250, 95 gr. Berry's plated RN bullets.

Do you have any recipes that you've used and you'd like to share?

There Is Excellent Loading Data In The,

SPEER, SIERRA, AND HORNADY LOADING MANUALS.

The LYMAN manual has good loading data also.
