    Anyone loading the Rainer 147gr Flat Nose in their 9mm? Willing to share your opinion and favorite load? Thanks, in advance, OD

    I have used the 147 gr. Rainier with 3.7 gr. VV N330 and WSP primer.

    They work great for subsonic loads (which almost every 147 grainer will be). Just as a suggestion, bell the case as little as possible, and use a light to moderate crimp, and you get great accuracy out of them.

    Don't plan on using it for IDPA or USPSA...at least not when they are running a chrono. This load will make 125PF on a hot day but barely functions my 26 when the weather gets cold.
