Good results with 9mm load today

I used 115 gr. Berry's RN plated bullets over 4.5 grains of Titegroup with a COL of 1.125" and the results were very good - I couldn't tell the difference between those and similar Federal rounds right out of the box.

A friend gave me a box of 250 Berry's 9mm 115gr RN plated bullets. I loaded up 50 rounds with 4.3gr of Titegroup with a COL of 1.125" and a lite crimp. Pretty much as you did. Now I need a 9mm to shoot them It's good to hear that you had good results. Citywaterman

Didn't think to check that, however my empirical observation was that they were as accurate as the factory rounds. I'll try to do a little more objective analysis next time I'm at the range with both my .38 and my 9mm reloads.

If they match factory ammo accuracy you know you did well with your load.

Had really good success with a similar load and the Berry's. I am using Red Dot though, but it will shoot as good as I can shoot.
