Precision Delta Bullet Recipies

Purchased some Precision Delta bullets and trying to figure out recipes for both 9mm and .45 ACP. The bullets are 115 gr copper plated and 230 gr copper plated respectively. Will be using either Bullseye or Unique. Can anyone offer some input?

You've got the old serf scratch his head.

I didn't know P-Delta even sold plated bullets. I thought their stuff was full metal jacket or lead. What bullets do you have?

Have you got some reloading manuals? Unique and Bullseye are fairly common and should be listed in your reloading manuals. My Speer, Lee and Lyman manuals all show loads with these two Alliant powders. What do your manuals show?

You can also get online information at:

http://www.alliantpowder.com/product.../bullseye.aspx

http://www.alliantpowder.com/product...e_handgun.aspx

If you choose to use the Alliant online guide, you must be sure you understand the loads shown are maximum loads. In reading the Guide information make sure you understand the following statement:

Quote:
REDUCE RIFLE AND HANDGUN CHARGE WEIGHTS BY 10% TO ESTABLISH A STARTING LOAD.
The exceptions to this are the loads listed as "target" in the 38 Special and 45 ACP data tables.
