I'm looking for load data from a Hornady reloading manual.

I need data for the Hornady 124gr. XTP in 9mm.

I need starting load, max load, and OAL.

I have Bullseye, Unique, and TiteGroup.

Thanks for any info.

I was thinking about using the data in my Speer manual, with the XTP bullet. I see a big difference though.

When comparing the 124gr. GD to the 124gr. XTP load data out of both manuals.

Unique is the only common powder listed, so lets's use it.

Speer 124gr. GD

1.120" OAL

starting load is 5.2gr. at 1080fps

max load is 5.8gr. at 1180fps



Hornady 124gr. XTP

1.060" OAL

starting load is 4.0gr. at 900fps

max load is 5.0gr. at 100fps



Is the reason XTP charges are smaller because of the shorter OAL?

Is there that much difference b/t the GD and the XTP that you can't use similar load data?



I really want to try some TiteGroup and Bullseye with the XTP bullet, but I don't have any data for it.



I found 2 recipes on other forums for the 125gr. Zero JHP. Could I load the XTP similar to these loads?

4.2gr. TiteGroup with 1.140" OAL

3.8gr. TiteGroup with 1.095" OAL



Why doesn't Hornady list Bullseye and TiteGroup loads for the 124gr. XTP??



I'm sorry for all the questions. I'm just trying to learn all I can about this stuff.

try loadbooks usa booklets only cost some $10



most of speers bullets are thick plated ie golddot,tmj though do have a jacketed line and lead.



hornady likes to use short OAL for some reason. feel free to take the OAL out to 1.120-1.125 not sure where you will hit rifling take a bullet and case and find out. take a marker and color the bullet similar to the old smoking method check what OAL marks start appearing.

The longer OAL does make a difference, so that could account for the difference.



Generally speaking fast powders like Bullseye and Titegroup are best for low to medium velocity.



Hornady shows the max OAL as 1.169" for 9mm.



In most cases you can use loading info for a similar bullet weight, like cross referencing info between Speer and Hornady bullets.
