    I have had great luck with Bullseye, WSF and Universal powder. Check online at manufactures site for OAL and powder load. Any particular powder you are interested in using?

    My current powder for 124gr 9mm is WSF. You have to run it faster than say tightgroup but I like the recoil impulse better.

    My last trip to the range (Glock17, KKM barrel) showed outstanding results with 4.1 gr. WSF, 147 grain Bear Creek and 147 grain Lane Bullets, at OAL of 1.115.

    running 4.0 gr of Win 231 under a 125 gr. TC bullet I cast, 231 meters well through a Lee disk measure, 4.0 gr. charge is light enough for just about any shooter and cycles every 9mm I've fired it in, I load these by the thousands.

    4.5 gr of Unique and a 125 gr RN from Missouri Bullet Company gave me this group today. I'm pleased.

    I use a 125 gr LRN over 4.3 gr of unique with good accuracy and moderate recoil.

    Lead, I like WSF but have used several others. Just stick within manual load ranges for 124/125 gr. and you'll be good to go

    125gr LCN over 3.3gr Clays for my winter indoor league gamer load. A little smokey but super light recoil.

    Another WSF fan. 4.5-5gr depending on what vel levels you need.
