Default Reloading data for Bear Creek 9mm bullets

I'm new to reloading, and looking for load data for 9mm Bear Creek 125gr. and 147gr. bullets. Specifically going to use in competition, so hoping to find some soft-shooting recipes.

Right now I have Vhitavuori N320 and Hodgen Titegroup, so if anyone knows data specifically with those powders, it would be great if you could let me know (including OAL).

Thanks!

I have chrono'd the 125 LRN Missouri Bullets below is my data. I know its not what you are asking for. It might still have something useful.

Quote:
Bear Creek LRN OAL 1.115
4.25" M&P
4.0 Winchester 231 125 986 122,289
4.2 Winchester 231 125 1030 127,658
4.6 Winchester 231 125 1055 130,767
Quote:
Montana Gold JHP OAL 1.115
4.0 Tight Group 124 1052 130,386
Sorry I dont have exactly what you are looking for. I would feel confortable starting around 3.6gn of TG and work up. You will probably end up around 3.8-3.9 with that bullet out of a 5" barrel

p.s. Welcome to reloading. Its about damn time.

I've used WSF with the Bear Creek stuff, both weights. It works very well. Very soft shooting. I've also used 540, but that's no longer listed - although HS6 is the same thing. Years ago this was one of thebest powders for 9X21 shooting major. IIRC one year 8 of the top 10 used HS6 or HS9 - butthat was quite a while back. The powder still works well though.

Bear Creek 125gr round nose?
Here's 2 from my log book. Speeds are as fired from a XD9 (4")...

3.8gr Titegroup with 1.085" OAL = 1051 FPS
4.0gr Titegroup with 1.085" OAL = 1082 FPS

EXACTLY what I was hoping to find (especially since I wanted to use my BC 125's for "learning" and then use the 147's for making actual competition rounds). Appreciate the data!

From my log book:
M&P 4.25" @ 78 Deg.
Bear Creek LFP 147gr
1.140" OAL
3.4gr VV N320 = 929.5 Avg
SD = 7.61

A little bit hotter than your looking for (136 PF), but you can adjust from there.
I use mostly Zip and Power Pistol for 9mm loads.
