OK got these coming and it's just something to do. I will load these at 5.0g Power Pistol to start but plan to load them lighter as I want them for my 9mm Taurus slim carry gun. I have Hydra shok to test with now to get ready for the HST. Any thoughts????? Craig

Well there HERE, It's really a JHP but due to construction it breaks up different or just mushrooms into a large clump of lead and jacket
Oh well, I will reload and get back. Craig

That's my load!   Been shooting that for maybe 5 years now.   Big fan
of Power Pistol in 9mm, .40 and .38 Spl.

I use it in everything except 357 Desert Eagle. The directions called for AA9 powder and it works great for that gun. Craig

OK shot the HST this morning out of the Taurus slim and all went fine. I do like the hydra shok in 124g in the Taurus but I can tweak the 147g a little lighter possible and it will be fine also. The 147g HST tends to bulge the case so I need to watch that but only had one not feed in the Springfield. Not a big problem compared to the cold and wet. Craig

Worked down the 147 to 4.5g Power Pistol and will shoot today after Lunch. Does anyone else find these new lightweight guns a chore to shoot with regular rounds in them? My Taurus slim recoils as much as you would think with my regular rounds. I'll get back to you all after lunch. Craig

Just editing to say I am talking about comparing a 115g bullet to a 147g bullet so so you would expect recoil issues.

Well after shooting I feel the 4.5 is unreliable and very light even when compared to the 124g hydra shok. The Springfield had trouble with the 147 but not the 124. The Taurus slim would shoot the 4.5g rounds but not always feed the next round and no problem with the 124g either. Just needed more push so I will go to 4.8 or the 5.0 worked well. Craig

P.S. All rounds were in the black so no complaints there.

Mr. Shadow I was going to try to reach you on this as I think you had the max at 5.7 witch is correct as that is what the forum has for the 147g bullet. Alliants website has the max at 5.0g so I just shot that but needed to try lighter for the Taurus slim so I went to 4.5. Too light as I found. I may stick with the 125g hydra shok for the Taurus or try 4.8 or so and load 5.4 (your load) for my other nines. Hey thanks for chiming in with the info though. Craig

edit to fix typos

Funny how much the data has changed in 9 or 10 short years. Ha Ha. It's weirg how I am always the one looking to lighten the load so to speak. Oh well thanks as always for your help. Craig

You're welcome Craig, one thing it does, is provide
upper limits and this data has pressure values. It is
sad that Alliant is not including pressure values in
their new publications.

SUCCESS!!!! Loaded 4.7 and 4.8 and both ran with no problems what so ever. Ran in both guns, the Taurus slim and Springfield XD and had no problems with either. I may load 4.7 for the Taurus and 5.4 for everything else. I need to give it more thought as I am not sure in what gun I will need 147g anyway but with 500 of um I better load them somewhere huh. Craig
