    I am going to try out Berrys 147 gr rn's in 9mm. Will 3.4 grs of Titegroup, with the 147's be enough to knock over plates at GSSF outdoor events?

    Yes, I know I have to hit them first.:rofl:

    Plates fall easily. Poppers take a little more work.

    What PF is your load? I suspect it will be fine. I shoot GSSF with maybe barely minor loads with a 108 jsp and dont have any trouble.

    I've knocked them over with Blazer Brass or Winchester 115 grain with no problem. That is, once I hit them! My problem lately, is actually hitting the plate with the bullit!

    I use Berry's 147 RN's and have had excellent results. I currently use N330 but plan to transition to Titegroup this summer. I use the basic load for N330 and plated bullets, and as long as I do my part, the plates and poppers don't have any trouble going down.

    If you hit them, they will fall. :)

    I guess Blazer is pretty hot. It dropped all but one with one hit. The IMI 45 ammo knocked the crap out of it.
    Seriously, I noticed a lot of people hitting low, that with the buildup of lead and copper may have done something to it.

    Maybe, but it was proven to the RM the plates were out of calibration by beating them with a fist and they wouldn't go down. Repairs were then made.
