    Happy New Year! Been lurking at the edge of the fire here for quite some time, my first time posting...

    So, I've got almost 1000 95gr LRN polycoated jewels from Better Bullets, .356, and Titegroup. Any suggestions on a load for 9mm cases? I'm thinking of starting around 3gr or so....

    Thanks!

    That should give you around 380 velocity I think. I've never loaded 95gr in 9mm, but that's close to the load I use in 380's.

    For what it's worth my hogdon book says 5gr max for 95gr jacketed in 9x19, so 3-3.5 wouldn't be a bad place to start for coated bullets.

    Sounds a little light. I load 3 gr of Titegroup for 147 gr coated bullets.

    Just checked the Hodgdon site. They show 4.7 to 5gr for a 95 gr fmj. It will be a little less for a coated lead bullet but not much. Ill check some of my manuals and see what i find.

    I think that they are intended for .380 (9mm Kurz) and possibly 9mm Makarov

    Thanks! I think I'll err on the side of caution and load a dozen or so at 4.0 and see how they run the gun, and accuracy, progress from there....

    Me and a few other guys at the club use 4.3 gr of Titegroup with 115 RN plated and FMJ bullets so 4.0 should be fine for a starting load.

    The 9mm Mak is 0.364" or so. The nominal diameter is 9.2 mm or .362"

    The mass is dead on for 380 ACP. 95gr is also used for the Mak but is a bit narrow.

    I don't use titegroup so I cannot help you there.
