Well I don't have any pet loads but Alliant has data on the net for 147G jhp at like 4.3 max so you could start at 3.6g or so and work up. Check the net to double check my numbers to be safe. Craig

Wall Street reports today on brisk trading 380 brass finished higher for the last 14 straight months against the euro, dollar and yen.

Welcome to the forum.

When you say "coated" do you mean copper plated, copper washed, painted or something else I haven't heard of yet?

Welcome to the forum.

Years ago I loaded many 147 grain JHP bullets in 9mm. Best load was
4.2 grains of Unique and CCI primers with mixed brass. Most manuals
only list up to 147 grain bullets. The likely reason is heavy bullets need
to be seated deeper, and in 9mm seating depth quickly affects

If I was determined to load the 150 grain bullets, I'd start somewhere
around 3.6 grain of Unique and seat to the maximum 1.169.

I stopped loading the 147 grain bullets and only load 124 grain Berry's
using HP38.

Good luck and welcome again.
