I got a guy trying to sell me 1k of 130g 9mm. I couldnt find any info until I found it for .38 super. He said I can load these in 9mm cases as the diameter is still .355? Trying to shoot them in a G17 or G19. Supposedly 75fps slower than 124g. Question- Can I load these and use them as target loads? Or is this stupid and a waste of time. They are fmj and I guess the biggest question is how much powder to add? Thanks guys!

You would start with 124 gr data and then subtract some powder OR look at 147 and 124 gr data and kind hit it in the middle. Erroring on the lighter side of a charge. I used .38 Super Bullets in my 9mm. They worked fine. Lead could be a mess or it could work just fine. Won't know till you try it.

You left out the 135gr bullet.

The Lyman 3rd edition Pistol reloading book does have recipes on the 130 FMJ on page 142.
