9mm

Recently bought a baby eagle 9mm, does it pay to buy the dies to reload 9mm as cheap as you can buy 9mm ammo.

    Hello,
    I have a bunch of 9mm 135 gr
    jrn .356 dia and I wonder if
    anyone has ever used any noses
    over .355?
    I figure to start with 3.5gr Bullseye.
    Thoughts?

    Thank you Ron

    Hi Rong, The 9MMM will work just fine with .356 BULLETS (not noses).

    The start charge might not cycle the gun, you might have to go up a couple of tenths of a grain. If available use Unique powder, it gave me better results in the 9MM it does not build pressure so fast like Bullseye does, plus it proved to be more accurate.

    +1 on the Unique. I used Power Pistol for my 9mm, but it was smoky and too much flame. I switched to Unique and better results all around. 5.0 grains with a 124 grain JHP. 5.2 grains with 115 grain FMJ.

    Though I'm only a beginner I've had the chance to try a few combos in 9mm, and thus far Unique has also worked best for me.

    I've never tried Unique
    in a semi pistol.
    for 35 yrs I've always used
    bullseye for pistols and Unique
    for Revolvers.
    I'll give this a try.
    Thank you

    +1 on Unique, use it in most of my pistol reloads. Love the smell too, guys at the competition know when I'm shiiting it

    0.356" bullets will often be more accurate in a 9x19. You are lucky if your 9x19 barrel has a groove diameter of 0.355". It is more likely to be 0.3555-0.356", unless it is old--then your groove diameter can range all the way up to 0.362".

    Either way, it sounds PAINFUL.
