Need load data Xtreme 115 gr. 9mm with Power Pistol

Any one have load data using Xtreme plated 115 grain 9mm bullets? The powder I have is Power Pistol. Need coal too. I e mailed Alliant. The load data is 5.5 grains max load. But they did not include the coal. The 5.5 grains of Power Pistol are for a 155 grain cast bullet. Thanks, gearyr

Sorry, I can't help, I only use Hodgdon powders. I am confused as to what your asking though. 1st. you mention an Xtreme 115gr plated, then a 155 grain cast bullet, which is too big for a 9mm. When I use a 115gr. plated bullet(Berry's) I use 1.10" for a case OAL. I had used 1.135" in the past, but settled on 1.10" on the advice of Hodgdon.

5.5gr sounds like a pretty hot load for a 115gr projectile, but I can't tell you about Alliant as I use HP-38 for mine. Their website says not to use loads over 1500fps. Do you have a chrono you can run them through?

The Alliant load data site gave this load for a 115 gr. Gold Dot HP. 6.7gr. Power Pistol, COL at 1.125 for a velocity of 1212fps. CCI 500 primer. They do not give any load data for plated or cast lead bullets, but this one above should serve you. You might think about getting several different reloading manuels to have on hand.

I meant 115 grain 9mm cast bullet. It was a long day when I posted about the Xtreme bullets. The load data that Alliant sent me was. 5.5 grains of Power Pistol (max load) for a 115 grain 9mm cast bullet. But no coal. Sorry about the wrong weight bullet. I have 2 reloading manuals, Speer #13 and the Hornady 6th edition. The only data they have is for a 125 grain 9mm cast bullet. So I am stumped. Thanks. gearyr

Alliant only lists max loads. Rule of thumb is to resort to 10% less for starting loads.

Now, for Berry's, rainiers and xtreme, or other brands of plated, they all recommend using lead charge amounts due to velocity issues. From experience, I load them all into the bottom edge to mid range (as a max) of jacketed loads. This keeps velocities in check.

Your COL will be the same for jacketed, plated or lead, depending on the profile of the projectile you are using.

I agree I load berry an now xtreme I always stay at the bottom to middle. I load for 124 gr. 9mm oal. 1.142

Both Berry's & Xtreme make a thick/heavy plated bullet they say can be pushed to 1500 FPS(for 9mm). I am not sure of other calibers.

The 2013 Hodgdon Annual Reloading manual (magazine) has an excellent write up on 9mm, focusing mainly on plated bullets because of their increased popularity. It's $8 well spent if your a Hodgdon powder fan (as I am).

Kinda late to the party. Here is a link to Alliant's online guide. Looks like they max out Pistol Power at 6.7gr. I am away from home but I believe I am loading 9mm with 6.0gr of Pistol Power. Load works good for me. At the max load Alliant gives you are just over the max velocity that X-Treme says of 1,200 fps.

If you want to push them a bit get the HP's with the concave base. That will let you load to 1,500fps
