Cast Lead 9mm 147grain loads question

I recently picked up a box of 147 grain Missouri bullets for my new 9mm Luger reloading efforts. They are pictured here:



Question, I am finding listed load data for this bullet a little more difficult than I expected. What bullet type is shown above? Is it a lead cast round nose flat point, cast truncated cone flat point, lead flat point, or what is the designation. I am most concerned with getting the COAL correct for this loading as the case length is so short that minor variations are significant. Thanks!

Looks like a RF with a bevel base to me. I've never loaded that heavy of a boolit in my 9mm. 125 grain boolits are about the norm.

Thanks. 125 grain wont consistently level the steel targets. 147 is needed.

It is called a Round Nosed Flat Point Bevel Base. I use the same thing, only I get mine from Penn Bullets. I load it with 4.9 gr of Power Pistol and it runs just over 1000 fps out of my Beretta 92. It seems to be quite accurate, there is a bit of a recoil, but I am running a 16lb spring rather than the 13lb standard spring. Steel plate go down when they are hit, no arguments. Max length is 1.169, I started loading to 1.165 but the recoil was setting the top bullet in the magazine out a little so I shortened up to 1.158" .003" and I've had no feeding issues since. This is what works for me, your results may vary

In the Lyman's 49th it shows a cast 147 grain fn starting Power Pistol 4.1 to 4.6 grains. I cannot see the photo of the bullet.
Ctyankee sounds like he knows the bullet better. in the book it says 4.6 grains will get you just 1000fps with an OAL of 1.058 inches. Happy shooting...
