    Since I flat out cannot find any data using 135 (actually when sized coated etc 137gr) and minimal with lead, I am wanting a quick opinion on where I want to start, I am using the Hi Tek Coating and currently only have Unique. I am going to do 10 each of 4.0-4.4 gr and from 1.12,1.125,1.13 and 1.135 and see how that goes. Anyone think this is way too high or too low?

    Thanks

    just use the mid point between 124gr and 147gr. Work it up. are we talking 9mm here?

    All the data in the world for standard bullet weights, why use an odball weight and have to make up your own data?

    If it's a 9mm I love the 130-135 gr weight. Favorite weight in 9mm. Get it going 1000fps and you easily make minor and it shoots a little snappy but not slow like the heavy bullets. Just seems to track with my grip and sights great.

    I guess that 5 grains makes a big difference...

    I think there is more than 5 grains of lead under my fingernails at any given time.

    Honestly, mold from NOE, wanted mid weight and all I could really find in the profile I wanted was 135, No problem doing the load dev on it, just hope I can get it with the same POI as my defensive ammo.
