A little thread drift here, but it's my thread. The pics of the chrono set up are to illustrate what works when using the Chrony brand. I set up a target, or pirate one left behind by some convenient action shooting slob who didn't clean up after himself. With the chrono well off to the side, I pick an aiming point on the target and shoot a group from my shooting position. Then I set the chrono up so the group is in the reading area of the unit. I was 5 paces from the unit.

5 paces to me would be 15'. I set my Chrony up similiarly. It is usually appx 12-14' in front of me, such that the remote cord has just a little droop in it. I don't have any problems picking up shots, and haven't shot it yet.

I made my own remote cord. The cable is longer than yours, but it only saved jme a few bucks by the time I paid for the switch and the little box for it to go in. My father had the cord and it took his considerable experience to solder the switch without melting anything.

Their maximum Blue Dot and SR4756 loads are listed at 109%, so these loads are compressed.
(My apologies for reposting this. I just purchased an LC9 and now I'm looking at all the old LC9 posts).
What does Nosler list as max for SR4756 and Unique with a 124/125?

The Nosler reloading manual #6 only lists loads for the 115 grain bullet.

The Complete Reloading Manual for the 9mm Luger has Nosler Manual loads for 90 grain and 115 grain bullets.

Kind of bummer to buy a manual and find out that it doesn't cover much.

The Complete Reloading Manual for the 9mm Luger lists a maximum Hornady load for a 124 grain bullet as 5.5 grains of SR 4756 @ 1050 fps

and also for a

124 grain bullet 5.0 grains of Unique @ 1100 fps

Which makes sense to me since I've found 4756 to be kind of spikey

Speer #8 lists 7.0 SR4756 and 6.0 Unique with a 125JSP. The Late Stephan A. Camp used 6.0 Unique a lot and wrote about it often. It was one of his favorite loads.

Hmmm, I tried 4.9 grains of Unique with 124 grain bullet last week.

I shot a much better group with 7.7 grains of AA#7. They both look pretty anemic compared to the Speer loads in this Complete 9mm manual,

124 Grain 9mm -
8.1 grains AA#7 @ 1077 fps
- 9.0 grains AA#7 @ 1180 fps

124 Grain 9mm - 5.2 grains Unique @ 1080 fps
- 5.8 grains Unique @ 1180 fps

I think I need to try a warmer Unique load before I give up on it.

BTW - I took my LC9 to the range today and put some factory Blazer FMJ through it.
At seven yards, that thing is a real terror. I can't wait until I get the hang of the trigger.

That's the best thing to do with the LC9, take it to the range. They shoot great. Just pull the trigger all the way through, like you would with a revolver, in one continuous motion. Don't stage it trying to make it into a halfassed single action.

I just wish Wolff would make extra power recoil springs for it. I emailed them and they said they were considering it. I'm going to order a few sets of the factory springs since they are cheap. I've got at least 2000 rounds on the original ones and I am curious to see if they are getting weak.

I'm trying to pull the trigger the same speed all the way through. I've got a hundred rounds through it and I am getting smoother, but it is still a slow trigger pull for me.

It is a very nice handling gun though. Every time I shoot it, I think it is just going to be a grin and bear it training session and then I end up having a lot of fun.

Anyhow, I'm taking your advice. I noticed that the four boxes of factory 9mm self defense ammunition that I have laying around are some old 147 grain Black Talons. Good enough for an emergency. The next time the money tree coughs up some spare cash, I'll pick up some fresh Ranger 147 SXTs.

I really appreciate this thread. Great to see the comparisons so well documented.

I am bumping this thread to mention that I bought an LC9 last night. Because of idiot libtard PRK laws I won't pick it up until the 28th. I am working OT right now so getting it to the range might take a little while. WiskyT and M2 Carbine were both instrumental in me thinking it is worth checking out. Thanks guys. I will post a thread after I pick it up.

I feel a little guilty leaving my G27 home as I seem to carry the LC9 almost exclusively now. I remember thinking how light and small the G27 was when I got it back in '97. Now, it seems huge compared to the LC9, even though it isn't that much bigger.

How do you carry the LC9?
How about the G27?

The LC9 is pocket or IWB without a holster. I use a Desantis Nemesis for it. After seeing a holster that advertises it's a pocket holster that can be stuck IWB, I tried that with the Nemesis and it works great and stops the thumb safety from digging into my oblique muscle, okay, love handle.

The G27 can go in the pocket, but it is more visable. IWB, there is something about the shape of it that causes the muzzle to push off my butt and causes the back of the slide to dig into my rib when seated. The best way to carry the G27 is to use the Glock brand pancake holster that costs about $15.00. It's very comfortable and it hides the gun nice and flat against your side. Mine have been very durable. I have two, but one is just a spare. The one I use has been used almost daily since I got the G27.
