    You might try.
    147gr.
    Unique. {3.9grs} 900 fps. 31.900 psi
    Bullseye. {4.2grs} 1000 fps. 32.900 psi
    These are manual loading's at the high end.
    Cheers.

    so, I could back off 10%, to be safe?

    Do you have loading data for this one also?

    wow, Lyman's manual states 3.4 to 3.9 for the Bullseye, 4.2 is high.

    on the Unique it states 3.7 to 4.5.

    Most of the time.... the "max" in the manual, isn't the actual max. Otherwise, they'd have to blow up a gun to figure out the actual maximum. The loads go through a chrony, they calculate pressure, if that falls within specs for that round, then it's ok to proceed, if it is very close to over, that's "max"

    Anyway, this is a perfect example of why you don't get load data on the internet (I'm not saying the data 436 gave is wrong...)... If you had a manual, you should have looked for yourself.

    I know, I was just asking if someone had a competitive load for the type of bullet, and the powder, and primer I had on hand.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    I was just given the link for Precision Delta, and I was wondering if someone found a good combination for it within competitive shooting.

    I'm purchasing the Precision Delta in 9mm and .40.

    Manufacture internet data is worth looking at. The rest is suspect. Ideally, Manufacture internet data should be the most up to date data. Some Manufacture internet data is very meager.

    I've shot the PD 147gr TC and liked them a lot.

    But they were out of stock on them the other day, with their track record it could take up to a few months before they have them again.

    In the meantime... Montana Gold has excellent 147grainers that I've never seen out of stock. About $13 more per 1000, but they have them now if that's important. If you're not in a rush, just back order the PDs.

    The Hodgdon website has loads of data of 9mm bullets in various weights both lead and jacketed.

    You can back off 10% if you'd like, but is a pretty safe high end load that I've shot many times from, Lee's Second Edition.
    I would agree as was mentioned, pick up a few manuals old and new.
    Couldn't get the pic's up... here's a thread.

    I shoot them almost exclusively. 3.3 of TG @ 1.150. Slight crimp just enough to remove the bell. Makes PF in IDPA just fine.
