Don't know yet, probably a 115 FMJ. Something cheap and accurate. I am particularly looking for a mild paper puncher

My initial idea was to start at 6gr, maybe I will start at 6 and work up to that.

6 would make a nice soft plinker.

If you want something cheap, look at Titegroup. It cost less and uses less powder. Perfect for plinking loads.

I used TB because it fills the case more.

I just made a test batch of 20. They are very accurate out of my XDm.

Let us know what velocities you are getting. I have been using unique on the 9mm and have been thinking about switching to TB (since I have a couple lbs of it). The cases are pretty dirty from the unique - hoping the TB cleans it up some.

I already had TB so that's what I used and it seems to work really well. Will probably try it in .380 next.

I'll be loading TB in 9mm with 124gr MGs, but not for a while. I have grown really fond of Ramshot powders for plinking loads but I do have substantially more brand loyalty than the average guy.

Come on guys, man up and get gold memberships, Justin needs a Chrony :p
