    G-26, 9MM

    Winchester once fired brass
    WSF-5 Grains
    CCI 500
    REM 124 Grain JHP
    OAL 1.120"
    Crimp .378

    Dillon 550, Dillon dies

    Still getting my feet wet with 9mm, pistol reloading. I've done my fair share of .223 for my ARs. Any changes you'd suggest? I've used HP38 previously in my CZ P01 with good results, this will be my first go with WSF. This ammo will be range fodder so the load doesn't need to be hot, middle of the road or a bit lighter will suffice.

    From which published manual did you get that?

    Speer for a basis. Did some research here. Way off?

    If it came from their manual it should be good to go. Most manuals are pretty conservative nowadays.

    Data I found seems to have that load in the middle of the spectrum, so, you should be ok.

    You should be fine. I shoot 5.1gr w/ a 124grLTC w/ a bit shorter OAL. With that Rem. 124grJHP, I have gone much higher, well into +P. The current Speer doesn't show data for that wt. bullet. In the 9mm, WSF loads very close to Unique, maybe a bit slower.

    Thank you. You are correct about the Speer manual. I've cross ref'd the load through a couple PDF files and intraweb searches. Just wanted an answer from the Glock guys for any particular quirks associated with the Glock chambers. My CZ, as many CZs, had an odd chamber and gave me fits when I first started loading for it.

    Have you noticed anything with your recipe when the charge was decreased, maybe as low as 4.7 grains? I'm not looking for a "fart" load by any means, just a mild plinker.

    I have 1k Ranier 124 RN that I'll be loading, but these Rem FMJ have been sitting around for quite a while. Any suggestions on the Ranier?
