Got some 9mm 135g hydra shok in and I can't find direct data for the round in Power Pistol. 124g is 6.4 max and 147g is 5 max so I was going with 5.5g. Can anyone find a problem with this thinking??? Craig

OK shot the hydra 135g rounds at 5.3 and they were fine. Could have stayed at 5.5 but safe is better. Craig

The biggest reason I didn't comment was I felt you did it right.   I
looked around and could find no data for the weight you're using
which is odd.

I thought so too. Mr. Shadow came up with some that covered 10mm but didn't have 9mm and the data section of this forum site didn't have any either. I shoot a lot of 9mm in the 115g and a few others so I guessed very close and wasn't looking for the most max round anyway. Craig

Well found some data at Hodgden website , so it is out there now that I don't need it but I may load some up to use up the hp-38 and titegroup. Good powders, I just don't use them Craig

I load a lot of 9mm with HP38. I use 4.3 grains with a Berry's plated 124
grain bullet. HP38 is a great powder for 9mm - accurate loads, fairly
clean, and meters well with my Dillon powder measure.   If I were
loading for the 135 Hydra Shok, I would start with 4.0 grains of HP38
with the OAL of a factory round.

Only problem with this thinking is that nobody in the business considers
interpolation to be safe. Recommendation is to use the data for the next
heavier bullet you can find load for and work up the load.
I show start loads for 130gn jacketed bullets from 4.7-5.6gn of Power Pistol,
but only have Accurate Arms data for 135gn jacketed bullets.

It's OK as I am way below those numbers 5.3 was a little light so I went to 5.5 and loaded all of um up as I only had 36 left. Anyway I don't know what "interpolation " is anyway. Craig

Found a bunch of these hydra shoks that I didn't load that were 124g so loaded some up at 5.8g, 6.4 being max for Power Pistol. I will shoot sometime this week. The mixup for me was getting a bunch of 10mm first then 9mm with similar sizes to confuse me which was not hard to do it appears. Craig

Craig the data I have from Alliant 2006 actually shows
the 147 grain XTP loaded with 5.7 grains of Power Pistol
@ 1,095 fps 34,000 psi COAL is 1.140" from 4" barrel.

So I'd say you were doing great.

Yeah the Alliant data is good for the 147 grain and others but not the 135g so had to work it out but it was OK. Anyway thanks for your help and now I have HST bullets coming to mess with. Craig

I'd say you did OK.   I think I would have used the same logic were it
me.    But, I've always felt the 9mm was underloaded shooting 115 gr
bullets, so I prefer 124 gr or 147 gr.

I've found the 147gr to be the most accurate bullets I've ever shot
out of a 9mm.   And that is what I shoot now.

joed, you have to remember that 9mm was created with 115g bullets in mind. I have shot these for years and just passed the NRA certified pistol instructors qualification with the same load. Oh yeah I shot it perfect 60 points out of 60 possible. Craig
