Finding +P load data is a bit difficult, Alliant lists a couple of loads, I recently found an article, that claimed that for 9x19 +P loads you could use the 9x21 data..

John, I went to Alliants site and found a lot of loads. It is different to lookup as I use the site for my known powder. This doesn't show anything but if you go to the standard reloading guide after clicking on enter the guide then pistol/revolver section, 9mm+p is listed and has 15 rounds that cover every thing from 115g to 147g all flavors. I had to go there twice to find it as I use the site just for Power Pistol and you can look up rounds that way but no 9mm+p are listed. Hope this helps and let me know if you have any more problems with the site as it took my awhile to get it done. Craig

John I just went there and there is a lot of Sport powder in those rounds for 9mm+p. Not sure if this will help you after all but that's what I found. Craig

Look for some old data using HS-6. It has always been a popular powder for USPSA shooters that shoot major 9 in Open. And those loads are way hotter than a simple +p load.

Edit*
I just looked up some loads in the old Speer number 11 manual. They have AA#7 and Blue Dot beating every powder by close to 100fps with a 124gr SP. And they don't list +P loads. All are standard pressure.

This is more out of curiosity than any need to "hot rod" the 9mm.

My load of 4.6 BE under a 128 gr, hard cast RNFP bullet gives me a consistent 1150 fps in a 4" 9mm, will do what I need it to.

There is quite a bit of information pertaining to loads to make major power factor with the 9mm for IDPA.

Most of my shooting is about load development.

Something that has seemed a bit incredible to me is considering the number of different shooting disciplines, the number of people competing in all of the different events and those folks that are just out recreational shooting. Taking all of that together, they have to be putting the metal back into the ground as fast as it comes out. Makes me want to go and string up my bow, I get to use those projectiles over and over.

I have three Lee molds, that I use for 9mm bullets.

Their 356-120 is a truncated cone bullet, that will feed in anything.

For field loads I use their 358-125 a RNFP bullet and for just plinking at stuff, the 356-95, a little RNFP bullet with a pretty big meplat, that should work well on small game.

If you are just punching paper, you do not need full power loads and with a bit of experiment you can produce good loads that will drop the brass right at your feet.
