Nope not at all gster, but as you can see the info you gave for a start load is the max load from the manual of the manufacture that actually made the bullet.

Jwrowland, if you look at the col you will see the difference.. This is a safe load from Lee data with a velocity of 1167 fps. The op was looking for data for 9mm 115gr. XTP. As you can see, there is more than 1 way to load a particular bullet safely. I would not give someone bad info on data and I check my info for typos.
