Hi all, Putting together my reloading setup (yeah, not at the best of times, obviously), and going through the online load data + Lyman's 49th. I plan to standardize on 124gr JHP to approximate a carry/SD load, but until some bulk bullets become available, I've got a mixture of projectiles including 250 Nosler 115gr JHP I'd like to get loaded as my first reloads. I saw some references somewhere (I know, not great..) about adding 10% or so to min loads for Glocks, something about pressure needed for cycling the slide - not sure if that's valid or not, but I am running into some conflicting load data, and hoping someone might nudge me in the right direction. As I don't have a chrono yet AND am new to reloading, I have no desire to chase ultimate power loads, just low to moderate power until I can get a chrono. This is for a Glock 19c, for targets, training classes and some cardboard stuff.. Powder choices are either WSF or HS6. Primers: CCI or Win. Projectiles: Nosler sporting pistol 115gr JHP I can't seem to find WSF load data for 115gr, but for HS6, it's all over the place: Lyman: HS6 MIN: 5.7gr/vel: 956 MAX: 7.2gr/vel:1193 bullet: xtp OAL: 1.090 Nosler: HS6 MIN:6.1gr Vel: 770 MAX 7.1/990 BULLET: Nosler 115gr JHP OAL - none given Hogden: HS6 MIN 5.2gr vel:1095 MAX: 5.7gr/Vel: 1165 Bullet: generic/non-named 115gr JHP OAL 1.169 There's a pretty large range in there across the board, powder min/max, and OAL. Nosler's numbers seem way low on velocity to me, or are they somehow the lowest BC in existence? Also if someone can throw me a bone about the easiest/best way to setOAL, I'd appreciate it. Right now, I'm thinking to run some dummy rounds (no primer/powder) check and adjust OAL, check chambering in the Glock, sort out a sane load, and perhaps load 20 at most x 3 batches staying well below max...if I can determine reliably the right data. Any help appreciated. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
