Nick, not to be argumentative, but I want to make sure that it is known that starting at 9.4 grains is about 7 tenths above the powder manufacturer's MAX. With emperically observed powder inconsistencies, I would recommend something much lower as a place to start. No harm in starting lower except a few bucks of burned up components. I have personally observed smiles at 9.1 and nasty smiles at 9.6 gr. This is the only load combo to give excessive pressure symptoms in my gun.
