    9mm 125g LRN with titegroup

    Anyone loading 125g LRN 9mm ? My books say 1.250 OAL, Looks huge to me and they fail the plunk test. Looking on line at some reloading sites, I'm seeing a lot of people saying 1.030. I tried a couple of dummy rounds at this OAL and they work great with the plunk test. I"m loading titegroup middle of the load at 4.8g All info came from the 2008 Hodgdon annual manual.
    In another manual they list 124 TMJ at 4.0 - 4.4 g should I knock my load back a little?
    Thanks

    I load xtreme 124gr rn copper plated at 1.08- 1.1 using 4.2gr of titegroup with pretty good results out of my G19 and Witnesses. Xtreme recommends using load data for a lead bullet. Not sure if this helps you or not. Im fairly new to reloading myself

    I am running about 3.8 at 1.136. I assume with your info of 4.8 the projectile would need to be out further so as to not increase the pressure.... The experts will be along shortly I'm sure. In any event, why use more powder than you have to?

    Powder wise i hardly ever load over middle of the road. Rounds will be used in 3 different pistols.
    I've loaded enough for 3 magazines going to try them before i go any further

    1.25 is hella long. I had to go from 1.15 to 1.12 to keep my CZs happy.

    Not sure how much that extra gram of lead matters, but the load data I have shows a max of 4.1gr for 124s.

    That 4.8 load seems a bit high to me.

    I didn't think there was much of a load window for TiteGroup in that weight range. I went with a slower powder.

    I wont be wronged, I wont be insulted, and I wont be laid a hand on.
