I loaded Xtreme's 135 grain RNFP with CFE Pistol & they were great.Decided to expand the loads for my Browning HP GP using plated 147 gr RN X-Treme bullets for my 9mm Browning P35 HP. Has anyone out there had any experience loading 147 gr bullets in 9mm Luger using CFE Pistol powder?
Powder wise, that's OK, but I have to say that is way too short for the 147 grain Xtreme bullet with a .357" diameter.I decided to try 4.0 gr of CFE Pistol pushing the Xtreme 147 gr RN, with a COL of 1.10". I'm taking it out to the range tomorrow and see how it goes. I about in the middle of the Hodgdon online load data for 147 gr bullets.
zaster, that is my load for 124gr. RN Xtreme or Berry's bullets, 5.2gr. of CFE Pistol, but I use 1.160" C.O.L. Very accurate & great function.I have experimented with the X-Treme 124 grain RN using CFE in the low 5 grain range and a COL of 1.15, works pretty good.
+1 on the 115 grain, same reason I went with the 124zaster, that is my load for 124gr. RN Xtreme or Berry's bullets, 5.2gr. of CFE Pistol, but I use 1.160" C.O.L. Very accurate & great function.
115gr. RN get 5.4gr. with a 1.130" C.O.L. Great function also, just not quite as accurate, that's why I moved to 124gr. + they were about the same price, but last week Xtreme had a box of 500 115gr. for $33 + free shipping & I had to jump.
