I just bought a 9mm Glock 34 and would like to start reloading for it. What kind of powder and load data would you reccomend?

Remembering of course that Glock forbids the use of reloads. I don't have the 34 yet but for my 19 and 26 I like the winchester 115gr JHP with hogdon HS6 behind it. I use LEEs modern reloading book for all my data. The only other thing is don't use lead bullets unless you get an after market barrel for it, I understand that can lead to KB's

Try Hodgdons TiteGroup. TiteGroup is the cleanest burning powder I have ever used. I load 4.5 grs. behind a West Coast Bullets 115 gr. FMJ. I use a OAL of 1.120". My G17 and G34 groups well with this load.

Highly recommend Vihtavuori 3N37 or Alliant Power Pistol for the 9mm.

Both these manufacturers offer free data pamphlets, and have data on their sites.
