    Does anyone have a good 9mm Luger 115 grain recipe for "The Blue Bullets"? The website just says look up the recipes on the Hodgdon Load Data sheets but there are about, three of them lol. Can I use all three or is there a special one to use for "The Blue Bullets". Any help for a noob reloader like myself is greatly appreciated!!!

    The three recipes are listed below-

    1-BULLET WEIGHT 115 GR. SPR GDHP- CFE Pistol Powder
    2-BULLET WEIGHT 115 GR. LRN- CFE
    Pistol Powder/ 700x Powder
    3-BULLET WEIGHT 115 GR. SPR GDHP- 700x Powder

    These are the options available when I look up 9mm 115 grain plus all the other specs of course.

    I loaded 'em using cast bullet recipes, when run over a chrono they measure right where they should. Don't have my notes handy, been years since I loaded some, but I remember they were ok for plinking.

    Cast bullet loads using any manufacturer's powder should be fine.

    I've never used them but would run them like a copper plated bullet.

    CFE Pistol is one that David at Precision Bullets recommends. You can check his YouTube series for some good starter tips. I loaded some of the Precision 125 gr RN lead at 4.8 gr CFE 1.125 OAL. Shot fine, no issues. I also load the coated 147's with CFE at about 4 gr for a range plinker. CFE Pistol is a slower pistol powder which I have grown to like. The Brian Enos forum has tons of data on loading 9mm Blue Bullets, I would Google that.
