9mm Rainer 147gr FN Bullets?

Anyone loading the Rainer 147gr Flat Nose in their 9mm? Willing to share your opinion and favorite load? Thanks, in advance, OD

They work great for subsonic loads (which almost every 147 grainer will be). Just as a suggestion, bell the case as little as possible, and use a light to moderate crimp, and you get great accuracy out of them.

WSP
3.5-3.6gr win 231
OAL = 1.110

Don't plan on using it for IDPA or USPSA...at least not when they are running a chrono. This load will make 125PF on a hot day but barely functions my 26 when the weather gets cold.
