Win 115hp, 5.0 w231 or hp38, wsp primer. X1 fired mixed cases, 1175fps. I tipicaly buy nickel cases so I don't have to deal with mil cases and primer crimps much. Also case capasity is much more consistant without the mil cases mixed in. I have loaded a lot of wcc cases sorted out by them selves. I am not concerend about pressuer so much as consistancy. I bell and crimp very little. I run the size die one full turn off the plate and finish up with a Lee fcd. If any one can beat this load for the money and simplicity I wana try it.

Zero 147 JHP in Win cases, WSP primer and plain Clays powder. Nothing shoots softer, and has been very accurate for me in a couple guns. Clays is all I load in target 9mm anymore, soft and clean while still being very accurate.

That gun can actually do 1" @ 25 with good ammo. I've been told that 6 grains of Power Pistol behind a 124gr. XTP will shoot 1" at 50 from a match gun, so that one is worth trying too.

115gr FMJ Montana Gold + 5.3gr Winchester Super Field = 1,140 fps and accurate.

124gr FMJ + 4.9gr WSF = 1,070 fps

124gr FMJ + 4.6gr Universal = 1,100 fps.

124gr FMJ + 4.1 N-320 = 1,050 = very accurate and clean.
