Thought I would share:

29 degree day, five shot string, 10 feet from the chronograph, COL=1.02, Weidner's 122 grain Conical Lead Bullet, heavy crimp, mixed brass, Wolf Small Primers:

3.50 Solo1000 ==> 1025 Average FPS ==> 125 Power Factor

3.65 Solo1000 ==> 1044 Average FPS ==> 127 Power Factor

As cold as it was today, I feel comfortable with the 3.5 load for USPSA Minor Power Factor.

I have 3, 9mm's that I shoot a lot. The Sig P-226 has the slowest results. So I use it as my baseline.

My G-17 Storm Lake barrel typically gives another 100 FPS than the Sig.
My G-19 Lone Wolf barrel gives about 10 more FPS than the Sig.

Supposedly, Solo 1000 is not temp sensitive. I have not found it to vary much if at all between 40's and 90's.

It always seems to feel the same and function in the gun the same, but I have found it to send the bullets down range faster when the outside air temp is warmer.

I am finding the current data from Accurate to be right on with lead bullets, both in my 40 and in my 9.

I have also found the Sig barrels in three different Sigs (two P-226's and a P-6) to lead up so quikly that the bullets key-hole after 50 - 100 rounds.

These loads work fine in my LW G-19 barrel, and in a Storm Lake G-17L barrel -- weird.

Well, your .13 shorter in length then most people I know loading it. Thats probably why it's running faster.

I load 'em the same length in hot and cold weather?

It is a short bullet with a flat nose. If I load them any longer, the bullet shoulder will hit the lands on one of my barrels.

Are you shooting any Major Match's were if you fail you get to shoot for no score? If so I would bump them up to 130PF to give you some room for variances. OR, shoot 10 rds and only calculate PF off the lowest 3 rounds. I still like 130PF for my comfort.

I can't say that I wouldn't use these loads in a match. But, generally, I only shoot FMJs or the Berry's plated bullets at a match. I shoot a G-34 in production USPSA with a factory barrel and a load based on Titegroup powder. I use the lead loads for practice and outdoor steel matches.
