    Default 9mm 115gr lead load data

    I just picked up 1000 115gr round nose from mastercast this morning, i have always used their 125gr and they didn't have any load data for them since they just started making them. Anyone have data with Bullseye?

    So was I but I bought the 125's. Happy reloading and good luck.

    Well according to Alliant a 115 GDHP is 4.7grains Bullseye. I would load 4.4-4.5, buy a different powder, or head over to castboolits forum and check them. They got recipies for everything.

    This is from Castpics, a link off of the castboolit.com site.

    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    I'm loading the 125gr lead to 4.0 of bullseye, i was using hp38 until i couldn't find it anymore and bought 8 pounds of bullseye, when thats gone i am going back to hp38, i think it was more accurate in my guns but my buddy has zero issues shooting out the center with the bullseye.

    I checked out that site and will start with 4 but it didn't have an oal listed, should i just use what i was for the 125gr?

    I loaded 15 each at 3.9gr and 4.1gr at 1.12 and used 4.5gr at 1.15 and did 5 at 4.5gr at 1.12, after reading this i may pull those 5 apart. I haven't had a chance yet to test them
