    What's your favorite load or ammo for GSSF?

    Many of your GSSF'ers have a favorite load that you have found to be successful for you. Share it with us. I get emails regularly wanting to know what I shoot and what my favorite load is. After I share my load, many of the inquirers reply with "what do the other shooters use?"

    Okay, GT'ers, inquiring minds want to know. Let's tell them.

    Here's my load: I use a Remington 124 grain FMJ bullet in front of 4.8 grains of N37 powder, sparked by a WSP.

    What's your load?

    In 9mm I like a Hornady 124 grain RN or FP over 4.2 grains of TiteGroup, Winchester SP Primers.

    In the .45 ACP Nosler's 185 grain JHP is the bullet of choice over 5.3 grains of TiteGroup, Federal LP Primers.

    What's your load?

    I use 115gr Winhester Whitebox from WallyWorld.

    I'm only three first place wins away from shooting it in master class! ;f ;f

    Well a Zero 147 JHP in front of 4.0 of N330 with a Federal 100 primer works for me. Dale, it has gotten me to Master class. ;f I'm using it in my 17 and 17L.

    In 9mm most recently I have used Zero 147gr bullets , 3.6gr N330, oal of 1.140, Federal once fired brass and Federal Small primers. Works great in both stock G17 and U/L G17L. The West Coast and Remington 147gr bullets with the same load also works great.

    In .40's I used West Coast 180gr RNFP, 3.8gr WST, oal of 1.135, Federal/Winchester once fired brass and Federal Small primers. Works great in the stock G22 and U/L G24C. Both U/L Glocks have Tasco PDP5CMP Red Dots and Carver Mounts.

    Of course I am also only 3 "A" Class wins from the Masters.;f ;f ;f
    Now that I have had my Cataract Surgery I plan on giving it a hard run but have fun however things go.

    Well, in 9mm I use Star 124fmj's over 5.0 of Unique mixed brass with a CCI primer.

    In 40, Star 180 over 4.2 WST(thanks to some of the other GSSF'ers) with CCI primers.

    These loads usually keep my in the top 15 in "A" class, as high as second(sub) and third(am-civ) last match.

    Now, this is getting interesting. We have already had replies that include 115, 124 and 147 grain bullets in front of N37, Titegroup, N330 and Unique. WOW, I bet when everyone wakes up Sunday and reads Glocktalk after church, we will get a bunch of loads. This could be a great start to building an ammo list for our new shooters.

    Okay, GT'ers, inquiring minds want to know.

    I also use the Winchester 100 round value pack 9mm round. 115 grain brass jacketed bullet over who knows what. Probably uses Winchester primers. :)

    I am only two wins away from master class! ;f


    I did find a deal on 1200 rounds of S&B 9mm for a flat $100. It shoots well and will probably be in the G26 in Statesville. :)

    ...I used to shoot the 147 gr rem match 9mm bullet. Just recently, I have gone to the zero 135 gr 9mm. After alot of experimentation and some advise from DTOM, I think I've nearly got "the" load. Though I need to chromo it, it seemed to work OK @ MN.

    To me, shooting a "stock" 17 in stockmeister and a "stock" 34 in UL, the 135gr bullet seems to take advantage the larger bearing surface of the "heavy" 9mm bullets and the light recoil/muzzle rise of the "lighter" 9mm bullets...giving me more speed and retaining accuracy..oh, and "Dave" said he shot them to:)

    I don't have my load data w/me:)..as I'm on leave. I'm using AA#5.

    jay,
    I forgot to tell you that I don't know much about reloading!!!;)

    But I'm sure Dave's advice was helpfil!!!

    I use Winchester 115 value packs from the Wally World Supercenter!!
    WHY, I hate reloading 9mm. The 115's are accurate enough! I've won more money with that round than with reloads! BUT, I'm still 3 A class wins from being Master. It should have been 2 wins!;f ;a

    Great Load. Must always have the correct mixture of "Aiming Fluid" at the Fri night gathering.

    My 9MM GSSF load is Montana Gold 124 gr JHP, VV N-320 powder, Starline brass, and Federal 100 small pistol primers. It is an accurate soft shooting load. I load for a 120-power factor. That is the NRA Action Pistol power factor and it will knock down a Pepper Popper.

    Gun bags with plenty of ammo.
    Couple of chairs.
    Plenty of money for the Friday gathering and a hotel room.

    Anything that throws the bullets down range, and pasters, to cover the evidence, is load enough for me!

    I just couldn't resist.

    I also use Wally-World Win white box. It shoots pretty good for me from my UL G34. Only time will tell if it, and I shoot good enough to join the ranks of GSSF winners. I can hope can't I?!

    I wish I could say that. Reloads have been very, very good to me! Reloading 9 is no harder than anything else about shooting GSSF, it's part of the journey. Like practice, you need to do what it takes to get where you want to go. And you're right, it should be only 2 wins away. :)

    It would appear that we have several formulas for a GSSF load here. Bobby, do you want to sticky it or condense it as a tip for new shooters?
