    Been playing around this winter with some light 9mm loads using Missouri Bullet 125 grain lead. So far my best have been 3.0 grains of 700X and 3.2 grains of Titegroup. The Titegroup load is actually under spec. from all the data I have found but seems to shoot well. I bought some Wolff springs for my XD tactical so the light loads will cycle the gun. Seems like the scientific approach never gets boring. :)

    Yep, N320 is awesome, but 700X does very well too. I like it in 9MM, especially with lead. Don't care for Titegroup.

    Bullseye. Very good powder. Seems to be very under appreciated these days. Not exotic enough for most people?

    I've been shooting the Lee 358-125-RF in my Beretta 92FS (known for huge groove diameters) at .359" with loads down to 3.7gr of 231, using Winchester brass and primers.

    The people at Lee have changed this bullet from what's pictured in their catalog, to one with a smaller meplat, longer nose, and now a flat base.

    Ordinarily, I would not try such a bullet in a pistol with a pronounced feed ramp, but I tried it in my Walther P38 (also known for big groove diameters) and it worked very well.
