9mm load, finally!

After many attempts I have found a great load for my G26, it's dialed in .

Here it is;
Berry's 124gr RN bullets
4.8gr of Unique powder
CCI #500 primers
Nickel, once fired brass
1.123" OAL

I loaded 500 rounds and will be heading to the range soon. Thanks guys for all the help.

Glad you're happy with the load! Good luck at the range. My 26 seems to favor heavier bullets (135, 147 gr) for top accuracy.

Interesting, I only made loads with Berry's 115gr and 124gr bullets and didn't try any of the heavier bullets. I don't know why, I just stuck to those two bullet weights. The 124gr seem to work better than the 115gr in my G26. Are there any benifits to shooting heavier than a 124gr bullet at the range?

135 are generally lead.
147 are easier to KB.
9mm were designed to run 124's.

I think you will be very happy with that load. I load the Berry's 124gr. HP over 5gr. of Unique with CCI500 primers with mixed brass in my G26 and it shoots great.

No, the point was the 9mm WAS designed around a 121-125gr bullet. The 147gr came about for the suppressed guns to gain a subsonic round that runs a subgun. They have been adpopted by the gamers for the same reason, it's easier to get a low vel load to cycle the action w/ a heavier bullet for lower recoil.

That would be me and the reason I use them and a faster powder - though I've switched to N320.

That's almost exactly what I use. Maybe around 5.0 gr with 1.15" OAL.

Shoots great. Feels very close to Speer Lawman 124gr.

Any chance you can chrono yours?

Glockgeo, shoot a load that you are happy with. Certainly don't put too much weight on the opinions found on the internet (mine included).

My comment was that with the bullets heavier than 124/5 I got better accuracy out of my G26. With the heavier bullets, I stick with slower powders (something in the Unique/WSF range). I guess I must be crazy, Red, heavy bullets and lead out of a Glock .

Well all I can say is....must be nice to have something to load! I put a order in 6-01-2012 for a 1000 rds. of the 124's and have not got them... so I called, and the gal at the desk said she had a problem child list she was going to put me on and she would get back to me when they "might" ship..... maybe the end of the week......LMAO problem child list.....really! Whatever happen to the e-mail status of being out of stock ....times change I guess.

Both my G19 and G34 like 5.2gr Unique over a 115gr FMJ @ 1.125" or a 124gr FMJ @ 1.150".

Both are very accurate. I just got a bunch of 115gr and 124gr Zero JHP's to try next.

my favorite load above also.

for those more adventourus..lone wolf barrel, 147gr lead bullet, 3.5 gr unique, cci primer, range brass...soft shooting, brass falls at your feet. This would cycle my g33 w/converison barrel, but may not cycle a heavier steel pistol..ymmv

The 9mm was designed with an 8 gram bullet. Convert to grains and it is 123.458867, ie 124gr. Germans traditionally used metric for bullets and grains for powder.

Similarly, in 1905, the 8mm Mauser bullet was decreased to 10 grams, but the design came out a tad less at ~9.9 grams. This translated to about 154 grains. In 1906, this lead the US military to change their .30-'03 cartridge from using a 220gr bullet to a 150gr bullet, renaming the cartridge .30-'06.
