1) Load I just made up
I did 11.4 gr [all that would fit. I wanted more]

I made up all these loads today by assuming that I wanted +P+ loads and
I would use 1.168" OAL, 9mm 124 FMJ FP Hornady bullets, and RP brass.
The way I got this max OAL to fit in my Kel-Tek P11 with flat points is:
I put a 23/64" drill in the chamber today and made more free bore. I
used the P11 because it has the worst chamber support of all my 9mms, so
if I have no case failure in the P11, I probably won't in the other

Don't try this at home.
