cajun_chooter,

I just started testing WST with .45 ACP loads, once I finished I plan on doing some tests with 9mm loads as well. I did a search of this forum and came up with these folks who offered up their data;

9x19 - (9mm Luger)
Bullet Weight Powder Weight Velocity Start/Max Power Factor COL
Hdy FMJ-FP, FM-RN, L-RN 124 WST 4.8 1025 Start 127 1.050"-1.150"
Hdy FMJ-FP, FM-RN, L-RN 124 WST 5.0 1050 130 1.050"-1.150"
Hdy FMJ-FP, FM-RN, L-RN 124 WST 5.2 1075 133 1.050"-1.150"
Hdy FMJ-FP, FM-RN, L-RN 124 WST 5.4 1100 Max 136 1.050"-1.150"

Springfield Armory XD-9 4" service pistol (9mm Luger)
Hornady XTP 124gr jhp with WST; a good load is 4.7 grains which produces about 1140fps w/ an OAL of 1.100"
Precision Black Bullet w/ WST; 4.7 grains of WST at 1.120"

(4.7gr with 124gr RN Zero 1.140)**at temp 102 and the avg fps was 1103 or 136pf

124gr MTG RN at 1.140.**I'd call a quick start as 4.4 - 4.5 gr with .1gr more in each crono set till you hit your desired pf or pressure signs

I loaded 5.0 Gr WST with a 124 PD FMJ @ 1.150"**Very accurate and low recoil. I chronoed it and got**about 1080fps

Hornady Fourth Edition Manual-Showing 9mm Luger - 124 grain bullet, WST Starting load 4.8-Max 5.4, 1.150"@ 1100fps

I encourage you to continue your own search as I am sure their are more sources of load data out there.

Good luck and be safe.

Yes!
I use it with 124 Pd bullets.

I have not loaded the PD 124gr JHP, but 4.2gr-5gr is the useful range for WST in 9mm w/ 124gr jacketed bullets. Pushing it harder often results in poor accuracy.

Hodgdon will tell you not to use WST for 9mm. If I ran out of Universal Clays, I'd load those bullets to a OAL of about 1.105" using 4.5gr WST and CCI SP. Should be good for around 1100fps.

5.0grs. WST
124gr. bullet of your choice
OAL - 1.150"

Very accurate, clean burning. Approximates WWB. I use standard/mag SP primers and don't notice any significant difference in velocity or pressure.


Sweetheart load:
147gr. bullet, 3.8grs. WST. About 940fps depending on barrel length. If there's a better GP 9mm load I haven't run across it yet.

I like using WST in 9x19 because a double-charge will overfill the case.

SCmasterblaster,

What kind of results did you get with 9mm &WST? Which bullet weight worked best for you?

I want to start testing WST in 9mm in a month or so myself and could use a heads up.

ALSO...

What is your opinion about WST and 380 ACP loads?

Anyone have any thoughts - pros or con?

WST works very good in the .380, I load 3gr. WST under a 100gr. Berry's RNHB bullet in my LCP. Feeds great with mild recoil in the light gun.

I've also used 5gr.WST under 124gr.fmjhp in 9mm.

And 3.7gr WST under a 147gr.RN with good results.
