Favorite Universal Clays 9mm load?

Just as the title indicates...what is your favorite 9mm load using Universal Clays and jacketed hp's (BERRY'S 124gr)?

Dang. Clicked on this topic but apparently, my 125gr LRN pushed by Universal load need not apply.

I run thousands of these each season.

Berrys bullets are not jacketed as an FYI. They plated like rainier bullets as well. I can't help ya on the powder because I use autocomp,700x,and wsf in 9mm. I am a big fan of Berrys bullets though!!

Would like to know what yours is for a starting point for me. Probably just going to run a few and build from there.

I was going to go with:

4.3 grains of Universal, 1.142 OAL, crimped at .378

I use the Berry's 124 gr hollow base with 4.4 grains of Universal at 1.12 col. Chronoed around 1100 fps. Very accurate round. I'm going to try 4.2 next time as the 4.4 launchs my brass into the tall grass.

I'm running a Dardas 125gr LRN with 4.5gr Universal loaded to 1.140" COAL.

In my Witness Elite Match with 4.75" barrel, they run a spicy 1,180 FPS average through the chrono.

...is where I get these bullets. Great slugs, great folks to deal with.
