9mm S&W Shield

I tried out Bullseye. I am having a bit of difficulty with the Chronograph as I don't think the numbers are correct. I think the numbers should be down closer to 900 fps. My test group of blazer was a really odd reading but I think the excess powder was affecting the chronograph. I had 2 iteration above the listed numbers but they errored out. I noticed as I was reaching the last two weights the brass looked chipped and dented and the brass was not consistently landing in the same place. For the numbers I had I think I have a good load for practicing as hopefully the standard deviations are correct because they are in single digits. I have not posted the powder weights but if one looks at the above gun world article I bet one can guess where the best weight worked out for me.

Thanks for all your help at least I can make some decent consistent practice rounds that seem accurate. I am going to load up a few more for conformation before I make a bucket load.

@jcreloader I just checked my Lee 2nd edition manual and it lists on page 184, 124 grain Copper Plated Lead, Universal is listed #21 out of 31 listed powders. It is not listed for the 124 gr lead bullet or for the 124 gr Hornady Xtp.

There are a lot of great powders for the 9mm some of which have already been mentioned: bullseye, and unique. I also use Silhouette and have used Titegroup with good results. I have read that CFE Pistol and Zip are also good although I have not yet had any personal experience with these powders. Lots of choices available. I have also noticed that powder is becoming more available on the Internet at the popular "Usual Suspects". However, there is that "nasty" hazmat charge to deal with.
