9mm, WST, 115 RN

Anyone got any good data for 9mm, WST, 115gr FMJ RN?

I posted this at xdtalk and someone pointed out that winchester doesn't recommend WST for 9mm.

I only have data in one of my manuals which says:
starting load 5.2 -- Max at 5.6.

So what do you guys think? Is it safe to use? Any more data?

Thanks

I'm sure some safe loads could be assembled, but, doubt they would be the latest contenders for any 'top velocity' awards.....

The search function here in GT can be your friend.... search "9mm and WST"

This one stands out to me in particular:

I'm using 4.3 WST with a 115 Lead RN and have been happy. I tried 4.8 WST with the LRN and felt it was a little too much. I would probably start with 4.8 with a FMJ and work up. I have used WST with a 115 CMJ but can't remember what I used.

Hope this helps.

Just becasue WIn doesn;t have data doesn't mean the pwoder can't be used safely & w/ success. I doubt you'll have good functioning w/ much less than 5gr under a 115grRNFMJ.
