Maxit, maxed out loads don't always equal better loads. More powder then recommended can cause gun damage, ware and poor accuracy.

Always start on the low end and work your way up testing accuracy and look for over pressure signs. You should never start with max loads or over charged loads and then test to see if they are safe.

Your most accurate load might be on the low end of powder charges but, many never seem to find this out because they think and feel more is always better.

If this is the first batch of ammo with this gun and with these bullets I would scrap them all and start over working up the load as apposed to jumping right to a max or over max load.

Your powder choice for that bullet weight is not optimum. N320 is better suited for lighter bullets. 90g-115g in 9mm.
