Bobby,



I don't have a load set up "specific" for the MP yet - but I shot my G17 load out of it this weekend and it shoots very sweet in the MP9.



Zero 147 JHP with 3.4gr VVN320 - I didn't chrono these out of the MP but they run about 129 or 130PF from my glocks. Also, with the glock accuracy was roughly 5+inches at 50 yards....with the MP it was better at about 4" at that distance.



The MP really shot well with this load. I'm not sure about a 124gr load....I haven't tried that bullet weight except in factory format.

Hey Bobby,



Kevin Insco here. Dont know if you remember me, but we grabbed a few drinks w/ Shannon and Derek at the hotel lounge at Tulsa.



Probably the best minor load out of the MP9 is going to be basically what Bryan suggested. 147gr bullets, 3.4 grs of Titegroup or N320 (they feel almost identical), loaded to somewhere 1.140-1.100 OAL and either Winchester or Federal small pistol primers.



Now, out of my CZ SP01's, they like the ammo at 1.100 OAL, but you can prob get about 1.140 out of the MP, but I have not tested that. You might even get them longer, but I dont see any reason for benefit to go longer. Thats the softest, prob most accurate load. That should be about 129-130pf.



If you like 124's and want to stick with them, out of my SP01, I got 124gr, 4.1grs Titegroup, 1.110 OAL and Fed primers and it gets 129-131 pf. Not bad load, a little quicker sight return, but faster slide action.



My PD is switching to the MP this week and Im doing the transition w/ our full time training guys. MP appear to be nice guns, I like them alot, but its hard for me to get away from my CZ's for USPSA.

Kevin, of course I remember! you are the man! I appreciate the help! I will have to go with the 124gr. Armscor sponsors me on the bullets I also shoot the 124gr. out of my open guns as well... thanks again and good to talk to you.

I'll second the 4 grains of N320 with a 124 or 125 grain bullet. Very soft and makes PF in both G17's and 34's. Have not tried in an M&P 9 yet.

I'll go wiht the VV N320, I have a few pounds kicking around here so I'll work out a load with the 147's.



Bobby, keep up the good work buddy!!

I just spent 3 weeks setting up a minor load for my M&P 9mm. I tried VV n320, Win 231, Tightgroup, Ram Shot Sillouette and Ram Shot Competition. I use Precision molly coated Black bullets so I ordered some in 115, 124 and 147 grns. I'm pretty much set on 147 grns in front of 3.0 Grains of R.S. Competiton loaded at 1.125 w/ Win small pistol primers. Out of all the loads I worked up and tried this one seems to be the softest while still getting my sights back quick.

No prob Bobby, anytime. Hey I understand about the 124's, you gotta run with what they gave ya. The 124gr load is not bad at all, if I couldnt get 147's, Id shoot the 124's. The sights seem to return a little quicker.

BBB,

How smokey is that combo? I tried something similar with master blasters and the smoke killed me.


I've been shooting Precision bullets in Limited for about 4 years now so I don't really notice what little smoke there is. I can tell you that Precisions are swaged and not cast so they smoke a lot less than cast bullets do. I've got a local guy who sells M.B.'s and I'll grab some and load them up to compare.

Yeah, but when you've been shooting jacketed bullets, everything seems smokey afterward. It also depends on where in the US you shoot, out East where the humidity is a lot higher, the humidity will hold onto the smoke and hold it down so you notice it more. Where is it much drier, you dont get as much smoke and it doesnt hold it down.
