Went to the range finally and was a little disappointed. These are the results of the loads fired from the S&W 1006 with the Bar-Sto 5" 9X25 Dillon conversion.

I too might need to do some die adjusting as it appeared the shoulder moved forward some.

Shot over a CHRONY 8' to the first screen.

9X25 Dillon April 1, 2009
15’ above sea level, 70°
ZERO 121 gr 0.0356” JHP
H-110 14.2 grains
Winchester LP primer

Shot # velocity
1 1157 fps
2 1169 fps…High
3 1135 fps…Low
4 1146 fps
Adv…1152 fps
ES…33.24
SD…14.59
A little disappointed with this loading, needs more development.
Blue Dot will be my next work up.

This load was starting load for 357 Sig 125gr for 1416 fps, I think there is room for improvement.

I just got a lee 2-cavity bullet mold (124gr tc tumble lube)and casted some.i put them on my rcbs scale and they ranged from 129gr to 131gr.so i should use 10.5 of aa#9 for a start load?.lee molds seem to be a little on the heavy side

According to the Lyman data with the 130 gr cast bullet shows start at 10.5 gr starting load and 12.0 as the max of AA9. BTW do you have the Lyman data?

I need to get to the range to test again, now that I have the cases sized correctly.
I'll be testing Power Pistol, Blue Dot, H-110 and AA9.

Please post your report on how yours did. Good luck to you!

Remember the Lyman Data was based on 8" test barrels, I only have a 5" barrel. I have asked JR of Lone Wolf about getting the longer barrel for my G-29 without the ports cut into the barrel, but he said the ports are cut early on in the machineing process. I rather not hae the ports jetting the flash and unburned powders into my line of site.

The bullet's diameter will be the thing which will affect accuracy the most. 0.356" will be better than 0.355", some people like 0.357" to fill the bore...Cast bullets shoot better and lead less usually at 0.002" over the bore diameter. Therefore measuring the bore is important, slugging the barrel is the only way to know for sure.

I found the lighter bullets(90-95 grain) didn't shoot as straight, the 115 grain & up worked better.

Be aware of the sizing of the die, you can't just run it down to the shellholder, you need to adjust so it only sizes the brass down enough to fit the chamber correctly. I originally over sized the brass(used 10mm) with the Dillon sizing die. The new brass from Double Tap is sized correctly to start. You can use the barrel for the cartridge gage.

Good luck!

Well I went and tested June 27th, it was extremely hot, had to constanly towel off.
There was no data for Blue Dot or Power Pistol for the 9x25Dillon, but I worked these up from 357Sig loads.
But here are the results...

9X25 Dillon June 27, 2009 test
S&W 1006 with Bar-Sto barrel w/22# Wolff Recoil Spring
Temps 99 ° HOT!

Lyman 130.0 gr Soft Cast Devastator HP 0.356” 1.255”
Blue Dot 11.2 gr Winchester LP
Velocity 1342-1367 fps
Primers flatten some, little smear, leading light

Lyman 128.0 gr Soft Cast Devastator HP 0.356” 1.255”
Blue Dot 11.2 gr Winchester LP
Velocity 1343-1373 fps
Primers flat some, little smear, leading light

Zero 121.0 gr JHP 0.356” 1.255”
H-110 14.4 gr CCI 350
Velocity 1280-1335 fps
Primers flat some, little smear

Zero 121.0 gr JHP 0.356” 1.255”
Blue Dot 12.2 gr CCI 350
Velocity 1405-1438 fps
Primers flat some, lot of smear

Zero 121.0 gr JHP 0.356” 1.255”
Power Pistol 10.2 gr CCI 350
Velocity 1592-1620 fps
Primers flat, lot of smear

LEE 122.0 gr Hard Cast TC 0.356” 1.255”
Blue Dot 11.0 gr Winchester LP
Velocity 1340-1525 fps
Primers flat some, little smear, leading very light


For some reason the area around the firing pin strike was being wiped against the breech face, in one of the incident enough primer metal sheared to obstruct the firing pin. This caused one round not to fire, I dropped the magazine out, cleared the chamber, inserted an empty magazine so I could dry fire the pistol pointing downward, this cleared the obstructed fiing pin hole. All other rounds fired without incident.

Readings taken with CHRONY Master F1 @ 8' from first screen.

I have been looking into the Primer Smear situation a little more, it is only the middle area which flatten and is being rubbed hard against the breech face on ejection, the outer area of the primers are still rounded and the cases are not swollen or disfigured. However the firing pin dent is being flattened and smeared with some. These were well used 10mm cases sized to 9x25Dillon and head spaced to be tight to the breech face less than 0.002" free play.

This maybe a result of head spacing and timing, using the 9x25 Dillon barrel in the S&W 1006 pistol. I am using this setup with the Wolff #22 recoil spring and ejection is only 3' or 4' with these loads I have tested. This is less than that of the 10mm loads and 40s&w load case ejections with the same set up.

I suppose because of the necked down case the huge volume of gas, ejection timing is off. The recoil is not bad with the loads, the ejection timing is something I considered. Remember I did the barrel fitting to the slide and frame but the fit looks & feels right. Function was good with Double Tap Ammo at even higher velocities with out any primer wipe. I don't know what powder he uses for the factory loadings(probably only avalible to commercial loaders), but it is very silvery looking(almost chrome color) and looks to be a dense flattened ball grannuel about the diameter of Blue Dot flakes. This leads me to think temps being too HOT and the magnum primer use. The S&W 1006 stock spring is 18lb, I run the 22 lb spring for the higher impulse 10mm loadings and it functions well even with the 40S&W loadings.

I will test the loads with the 20lb and 24lb springs to see if there is a difference in the cycles. Also will test various primer/powder combinations to see if things change for better or worse. This is what makes handloading fun, I don't have to have the fastest bullets, but I want good reliability, function & accuracy. This is why I play this game of handloading.

I may drop a line on Mike McNett at DT just to see if he can shed any light on my situation.

Ive just started playing with the 180 XTP .357 bullet

And 1200+ is easy with my g-20 length barrel.

The brass looks fine this load really is cool.

Mike I'd like to hear about the load data for this combination, if you don't wish to post it here please PM me with the info.

Thanks, The Shadow

Hey Everyone.....

First post, so here goes.

Picked up my almost new G-20C and immediately replaced the factory barrel with a Lone Wolf stock length barrel. As an afterthought, I also ordered a 6 inch 9x25 Dillon. WOW!!! Great toy!!!

I've only put a couple recipes of 9x25 through it using W296 and Blue Dot with a variety of bullet weights.

This is what I've got so far:

Speer 115 gr. Gold Dot HP.
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

11.5 Gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1527 fps
2) 1502 fps
3) 1555 fps
4) 1486 fps
5) error

12 Gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1581 fps
2) 1592 fps
3) error
4) error
5) 1550 fps

Happy with these results for the most part. Time for a new battery in the Chrony.....
___________________________________

Hornady 147 gr. JHP-XTP.
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

8.5 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1197 fps
2) 1124 fps
3) 1178 fps
4) 1201 fps
5) 1192 fps

9 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1304 fps
2) 1270 fps
3) 1267 fps
4) 1297 fps
5) 1299 fps

These are just over the max load for .357 SIG. I used that as a start point.
___________________________________

Bulk 147 gr. cast lead flat point
CCI #300 primers
5 shot string

9 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1252 fps
2) 1254 fps
3) 1229 fps
4) 1186 fps
5) 1236 fps

I figured these would be faster than the JHP's of the same weight. Shows you what I know. No leading though!!!
___________________________________

Random bulk 124 gr. FMJ
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

14.5 gr. Winchester 296
Velocity:
1) 1359 fps
2) 1226 fps
3) 1274 fps
4) 1288 fps
5) 1247 fps

15 gr. Winchester 296
Velocity:
1) 1365 fps
2) 1461 fps
3) 1385 fps
4) error
5) 1451 fps

Not too impressed with these. The first string was all over the velocity map. The second string tightened up a bit. Maybe a slightly heavier charge and/or a magnum primer next time???? (stupid battery!!!!!)
___________________________________

All the loads functioned perfectly. No ftf's or fte's. No mashed primers.

Judging by what I've seen here and found elsewhere on the 'net, I think I have some wiggle room with some of these loads.

Any helpful advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I got some 90 gr. JHP's kicking around. I really what to try these out!!!!
Lighting one of these off would be an experience. Any ideas for a start load???

Thanks Everyone.

Mike.

Lest we forget.

Hey again, everyone.

I made a second trip to the range to wring out more of my 6 inch 9x25 Glock 20. I Put together quite a few rounds with various bullet weights ranging from 90 grain 9mm bullets up to 158 grain JHP's for the .357 Mag.

Unfortunately, my chronograph suffered a fatal malfunction. (Okay...I shot the damn thing!! There, I admitted it. Happy now??)

Obviously, I wasn't going to do any velocity testing so I had to settle for function tests. I'm happy to report that all rounds in all bullet weights functioned perfectly. No stoppages of any kind.

Not counting the dead Chrony, I was quite pleased with the results, so far.

Lighting these things off really drew a lot of attention. Awesome muzzle blast!!! It would rattle the roof of the shooting shed.

Fast forward three weeks......

Here's my third outing with the 9x25 Dillon. It was a nice Friday and I didn't feel like staying home and watching the Olympics. The weather was clear and sunny , around 15 C (60 F). (Whose idea was it to have the Winter Olympics here anyway?).

So with spare Chrony in hand, off I went.

These velocities are in order of bullet weight.

(???) means "WTF???"

I couldn't test any of the 158 grain .357 JHP's because I blew them all off last time. I'll make up some more for the next time around. Stay tuned.

Again, I had no stoppages during this batch of testing. I can't fault the rounds reliability....at least from my perspective. Both powders used burned very cleanly. The empty brass was bordering on spotless.

One thing I did notice, though.....My Glock did not seem to fling the empty brass that far away. When I shoot 10mm out of this thing, it really goes for distance. I'm guessing that the longer barrel and smaller bore add more weight on the top end and keep the slide velocity down.

Feel free to comment (and check my math). I still learning.

Thanks.

Mike.

P.S....The spare Chrony survived!!!!!!

Gun-adian,

Thanks for the data and sorry 'bout your chrony - I'm expecting to shoot mine sometime in the near future too... just a matter of when.

I'm waiting on my right elbow to heal from surgery. Got some 95 grain 9x25 from Mike and can't wait to shoot some of them through the chrony (hopefully) and down the range.

Please keep the data coming! I'll share when I get the press and the arm workin' again!

-Jay

I sent an e-mail to Ramshot Powders today inquiring about SILHOUETTE powder and this was sent back to me within an hour today. I will be picking up some of this powder to try soon.

Caliber: 9mmx25 Dillon.
Barrel length: 6”
Powder: Ramshot –- SILHOUETTE®.
Bullet weight: 115 grains.
Start load: 9.0 grains (1275 – 1350 ft/p/sec)
Maximum load: 10.0 grains (1425 – 1500 Ft/p/sec).
Bullet weight: 124 grains.
Start load: 8.5 grains (1225 – 1275 ft/p/sec)
Maximum load: 9.5 grains (1300 – 1400 Ft/p/sec).
Bullet weight: 147 grains.
Start load: 7.5 grains (1100- 1175 ft/p/sec)
Maximum load: 8.5 grains (1225 – 1275 Ft/p/sec).
NOTES:
It’ important to note that SAFETY is our prime concern therefore we strongly recommend.
1.TO ALWAYS BEGIN LOADING AT THE RECOMMENDED MINIMUM “START” LOAD and develop loads in 2% increments towards the MAXIMUM load.
2.CAUTION: Beware of double charging if the loading density is below 50% of the available volume.
3.If possible, measure the velocity and correlate with our data.

Hey Gang...here we go again.

I had time for a quick trip to the range last week with more 9x25 loads. I used the Speer 110 Gr. GDHP and Hornady 90 Gr. XTP for this run. This is the first outing with the Hornady XTP. The Speer bullet I've used before, but I pushed it a little harder this time.

The targets were at 25 yards and the Chrony was at about 3 yards.

I'm happy with the consistancies of the 13 gr. and 14.5 gr. loads. All loads gave 100% functioning.

No malfunctions of any kind.

The last load hit 2000 FPS!!!!! It was also accurate. See pics.

I found the XTP's to be more accurate than the GDHP's. Again, see pics below.

I've got some 158 gr. JHP's loaded up and ready to go. I just need time to shoot them. Stay tuned.

That's all I've got for now. As always, suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Thanks.

Mike.

The targets were at 25 yards and the Chrony was at about 3 yards.

Thanks Mike! Sweet data/information! What kind of guide rod and guide rod (weight) spring are you using?

Even though the barrel on my S&W1006 is 5", that longer barrel does make a big difference with this cartridge. I have some rounds loaded that I am going to test in the near future, I'll post when I can.

Thanks for posting!

Jay - It's a factory weight spring (17 lbs. I think) captured on a stainless steel guide rod. I got it from the Glock Store. I wanted to try the factory weight spring before I upgrade to the heavier ones. It's working okay so far.

Shadow.....Yes please, post any new info you can get. It's your data that got me started down the 9x25 road.

Thanks guys.

Mike.

Sorry about that...I is a wicked little round.
How were your primers? Did they start to flatten any? Some? Alot? Mashed Flat?
How was the casings? Extraction? Expanded? Any Split?

I wish I knew what the powder is that DT McNett is using...I e-mailed him to ask but he probably will never say or it is "Commercial Only" stock.

I'm hoping after I recieve my VLTOR Bren Ten, I e-mailed Eric Kinkel and asked about producing some 9x25Dillon conversion barrels and others for it. He said that we think alike and it was a possibility.
The first step will be if we ever see the guns...

Wade
