Power Pistol loads for 9mm

Hello All,

I am thinking about giving Power Pistol powder a try in 9mm. I shoot 124 gr Montana Gold JHP. I am looking to try starting load of 5.6gr with an OAL of 1.120". I have 2 manuals, but my Lee manual doesn't have load data for 124gr with this powder. I have been using Win 231, but it has been hard to find.

Would like your thoughts and opinions on a good functioning load out of a G19.

I use PP for my simulated SD rounds for 9mm, MG 124 JHP with 6.5g (over max per Alliant, not by some others) at 1.120 OAL. No pressure signs and make 1200 FPS average out of my G19.

Oh, bring the sunglasses for the muzzle flash... I'm actually gonna load some up later this week for a low light IDPA match on Saturday night using my EMP9.

Here's a load right from Alliant. I have loaded over 10K of Montana Gold 124gr JHP. 1.120" OAL has worked well for me.

There are many, many more sources for what you need. Buy yourself a couple of reloading manuals and cross reference them.

Speer, Hornady, Lyman come to mind. Be careful out there.

PP for 9 & 10mm +.45acp. Only have chron'd 115gr FMJ. Like Boxer I'm using in my SD. With 6.3gr in the G17 = 1234 & 1031 in the SD.

My favorite 9 mm load:

124 grain FMJ round nosed bullet (any)
6.3 grains Alliant Power Pistol (6.6 grains max)
Winchester standard small pistol primer
COAL = 1.150"

If you're using a 124 grain hard jacketed JHP, then measure the difference in bullet length, and subtract from the 1.150" COAL.

This is a very accurate load, and still has a good punch to it, without getting close to the SAAMI max.

Power Pistol is known to commercial loaders as Bullseye 84. More 9mm commercial rounds have been loaded with this powder than any other. It's intended for small volume cases that run in the 18k-30k pressure range.

You should have no problem with 9mm is you follow the load guides.
