Default NEED LOAD data for 9mm using Titegroup

Guys I need to know how much Titegroup powder to use. This is for target shooting, I will be loading xtreme 124grn RN copper plated bullet, with WSP Primers and mixed brass. Oh yeah if you know the proper setting depth for this load it would be helpful!

Thanks
Darrin17

I'm using 4.0gr Titegroup behind 124gr bullets. I'm currently using Montana Gold JHP and FMJ, but I'll use 4.0gr for plated or jacketed.

Yep, hodgdons Reloading data center has good information. Just don't start at the max.

Yup, works everytime for me as well. Why beat this to death, just load small batches, use a chrono and see what they do.

4.0gr Titegroup
124gr FMJ (Montana Gold)
1.14"

I previously was seating to 1.12", but that was jamming in some of my guns.

so a C.O.L of about 1.140-1.150 should be good with the 124grn RN Extreme.

I load em to 1.135" based of data from my Speer book. The function flawlessly in my XD9 and shoot plenty accurate for me. Have not used a Chrono on them though.

They are xtreme round nose btw. just to clarify.

My gun loves 3.8gr with xtreme 124gr FP, it would cycle with 3.2 and went as high as 4.2 in my development but accuracy is best at 3.8. I start getting feeding issues when I seat longer than 1.115", but then again, I'm using the FP variety.

Speer #14 lists 4.0-4.4, 1020-1095fps, 1.135 OAL, TMJ RN

I have personally used 4.2 and liked it, but my bullets were FMJ at 1.135.

Since I couldn't find much data I worked up some loads and was checking primers for overpressure. I worked up quite a bit, and went over spec for TESTING ONLY.

I started at 4.2gr and worked up to 5.0gr of Titegroup.
I didn't chrono the OG workup, but checked primers of the middle-loads, but with a mistake I had some 5gr of Titegroup and decided to send them over the chrono, along with some loads I wanted to chrono before mass-producing them for a trip I am taking next weekend.

4.2gr Titegroup with 124gr X-Treme plated FP & RN's, yielded the following:
Code:
AVG- FPS1 FPS2 FPS3 FPS4 FPS5 FPS6
1045 1034 1026 1040 1059 1049 1064
5.0gr Titegroup with 124gr X-Treme plated FP yielded the following:
Code:
AVG- FPS1 FPS2 FPS3
1164 1136 1184 1172
I think One might have been a bit short on charge.

Remember work up YOUR load for YOUR firearm, as my FPS-yield might be different from YOUR firearm's. I thought I'd mention this as there are a LOT of people brand-new to reloading here. Since I have seen 4.9 and 5.0gr of Titegroup listed in other locations, I thought I'd drop them where they could be Google-searcheable by keywords I used ("5gr Titegroup" and "5.0gr Titegroup" and 124gr). There were no overpressure signs and I verified I was reading them correctly via another gentleman shooting reloads at the same time as me since we started talking about it. Fired from my Beretta M9 w/a 4.9" barrel with a 1.1 OAL on the 5.0gr.
