Does anyone have any load/chrono data for a 9mm load using 147gr jacketed bullet w/ Clays? (Not Univ Clays or Inter. Clays, but just standard Clays).

Thanks,

Kevin

Kevin,

Welcome to the forum!

I'm just doing 124 gr Golden Sabers and Bullseye right now, so I can't help with your question.

That was good to clarify which Clays you're talking about. It was a bad idea to start the Clays series without a little clearer method of segregating the various powders.

Hi Kevin and welcome also.

Just curious as to why you want to use Clays in 9mm. Usually better results are obtained with a mid-range powder like Unique, Power Pistol, Universal Clays, etc.

My most accurate 9mm load ever is a Rem 147gr JHP with 5.0gr Power Pistol.

Good shooting.....Rod.

Ive been loading for about 12 years on my Dillon and always shot IPSC or USPSA action pistol. Ive loaded for .40, .45 and 9mm. Ive tried probably 10 powders for each of the calibers and recently tried some Clays with the 9mm and it is by far and away, the softest and most consistent recoiling load for 9mm, out of every other type of powder Ive tried.

In IPSC, consistency in recoil and tracking is very key. The powders Ive tried so far are, Titegroup, Clays, N320, N330, N340, WW 231, Clay Univ, Clay Int, WSF.

I know I can get a load w/ Clays, just looking to see anyone had any chrono/load data for it. I was looking around 3.2grs Clays, 147gr jacketed 9mm, 1.105 OAL. I need to make 851 fps, preferably 875-880 fps for the power factor.

Thanks,

Kevin

Straight Clays is too fast for the 147gr weight.
QL says 2.4 grains under a 147gr XTP loaded to 1.105" goes 818 FPS and makes 34000 PSI. That is max. Your 3.2 grain load (123% compressed) makes 59000 PSI and generates 967 FPS. I can guarantee that you will damage your gun with that load.

3.2 grains of Universal will give you the velocity you want at normal pressures.
