4.8 grains of Unique is a mild load for 124 fmj's and I find safe in any brass brand. 5.0 grains is a good load but I like to shoot 5.1-5.2 grains of Unique with any jacketed 124 FMJ that I've tried mainly Winchester, Remington, Speer, and Hornady. I wouldn't go above 5.5 grains with Unique and 124 grain bullets. I do like and load Speer's 124 grain Gold Dot hollow point to 5.4 grains of Unique at approx 1130-1140 fps in a Glock 19. As mentioned deeper seating increases pressure especially in the 9MM. Hornady's recommended oal for their 124 fmj is 1.150".
