Gearing up for starting to reload for 9 mm, so consolidating my thoughts, experiences, and questions.
My goal is primarily for reliable functioning in my guns. Preferably as close to 115 gr factory ammo since that is what I typically shoot for training, competition, etc. But not a need. I'm thinking that I will likely need to keep things a little lower at first, which is fine. I have a chronograph that I think can be used for handguns, but I wasn't really planning on it. How have you gone about trying to replicate a specific loading? Not looking to get "poof poof" ammo.
Will be using a Dillon setup that one of my buddies who has been reloading handgun for years has. His handgun reloading needs are similar to mine, so that will help. I think he said he typically finds a load that functions and is a certain percentage (I don't remember how much lower) lower than the max published load data. That sounds good to me, but I am down to do some testing to get closer to factory load.
