    I just got some 9mm 115 grain FMJ (RN) and I have a ton of brass to load up. Only problem is I can’t find any load data for either of the powders I have! I have Win231 and some Unique. I looked in the Lee book and on the Winchester powder site and the Alliance powder site. They have load data for lead and hollow points, and some Speer rounds, but not plain old 115 grain jacketed bullets. Anyone have any advice? Can I use the data for hollow point?

    I am loading the 115 gr RN FMJ bullet I get from Berrys Bullets with 6.5 grains of HS-6. Meters consistently, Easy recoil, low smoke, no flash, accurate...what’s not to like. This mirrors what you will see in Hodgdon online data book pretty closely.

    Win231/115gr LRN data from that page. Am I missing something?

    I would suggest you start at or near a mid point and load 25-50 rounds and see how they shoot. You might want to add or subtract to get something that works best for you.

    I think the poster has FMJ bullets. I guess we should tell him he can use the LRN data points as a good reference.

    Yeah, they’re fmj not lead (I guess they’re jacketed lead) I wasn’t sure if there would be a difference in loading. I mean 115 grain round nose is 115 grain round nose, but I don’t wanna assume and mess up my gun (or my hands).

    I checked my notes, I shot 231 with the Precision 125 gr RN coated lead, 4.4 - 4.6 grains at 1.135 -1.150 OAL's...those cycled fine and I noted accurate. I second what Rusty Gun says about HS-6....it's great in 9mm if you can find it.
