I realize this has been discussed but I could not find anything searching this forum. I would like some starting loads using WST and 124 xtreme bullets.

4gr is a good start point, work it up to 5gr max, watch your oal & go slow. As always, use any data here at your own risk.

I agree.

I have loaded a lot of 124gr PD JHP over 4.7gr of WST at 1.130" OAL. Very soft shooting target load, very clean.

That's the same load I use.

My favorite 124 grain load with WST is 5.2 grains OAL 1.150 with plated or jacketed bullets. I've gone up to 5.4, using old speer manual data on WST. Just work your way up.

I'd start at 4.5 and not go much higher. As you've likely found, there is no recently published 9mm WST load data...and if you contact Hodgdon about it, they'll tell you it's not safe (unpredictable pressure spikes in small cases). That hasn't stopped people from using it.

Thanks to this thread, and additional research, I also use this exact same load, including the 124gr PD JHP. I'll also second that it is a very clean, soft shooting load; a pleasure to shoot from a Glock 19.

I also use it with satisfactory results in .38 Special and will research its use in .45 Auto Rim.
