Recipe needed 4 125gr 9mm lead with Bullseye

I have been using AA#5 for my 9mm loads using 125gr lead CN and Bullseye for my 45acp loads. I like Bullseye really well for my 45 loads and want to try it with my 9mm loads.

Lymans 49 does not have an entry for 125 or 124, only 120gr and Alliants website shows load data for Bullseye but for jacketed data, no entry for lead.

Can someone suggest a load for 9mm 125gr lead CN using Bullseye

Lyman Pistol and Revolver has 125 grain lead, their bullet number 358093, 1.115 COAL, Bullseye powder Start at 3.3 with Maximum of 3.9. Federal case, CCI 500 primer.

Note this particular bullet has a gas check!

Both Lee and Speer show higher charge amounts for a 125 grain bullet.

Looks like it may be time for you to buy another reloading manual to add to your library.
A lack of planning on your part does not necessarily constitute an emergency on my part.

Well, take the 120 data and back off the powder charge a hair.
