9mm 115 gr. LSWC Bullets?

Post by beeser on Sun Dec 21, 2014 1:11 pm

Anyone make 9mm 115 gr. LSWC bullets besides Penn?  Nothing against Penn, just looking for alternatives.

Beeser,

   I think what you mean is,is there anyplace you don't have to buy them 500 at a time? I have been thinking about contacting Bob and seeing if I can get 1000 bullets but a real mix of calibers. I want a couple hundred of the 9s but also some 38 ( 2 types), 41 and 45 cal. But I don't really want to have to buy 2500 bullets to test them. I will let you know if that works with Penn.

I don't mind buying 500, that's how many I had in mind.  I was just looking for another source.  So far I haven't found one.  Ideally, I wish Magnus made these so I could combine that with my next order of .45 ACP 185 LSWCs, which I really like.

Dardas bullets, precision delta.

I know the 126 GR from Dardas is popular in Michigan

Nope. Other than casting your own, I don't know. I do know that the old MasterBlaster coated 115 gn L-SWCs were fantastic. If I had any idea they were closing years ago, I would have tried to buy 10k or more.
Penn is my source. I get them 0.357"

I need a bullet mold design number or maker to see about producing these 9mm swc.

I don't know anything about bullet molds but Penn's website states that their 9mm 115g SWC is patterned after the H&G 68 SWC.

Will do. Mold set expensive. Take some time to have them made. Have to justify possible orders versus investment.
Wanted a swc for 9mm long time.
We have a 130 gr that works good. Just heavy for some shooters.

SAECO #925 115 grain LSWC mold. Also, check out the SAECO #922, sort of a round nose SWC. 
124 grain mold would be SAECO #924.

Magnusbullets,

  I was not able to find the 130gr 9's on your site. They sound interesting to me. My pistol likes heavier bullets. Can you provide a link to their location?

Thanks

They are part no. 509 in 38 section.
Some shoot .357 in 9mn can size smaller.
Original use was light ppc revolver loads.

I shoot the Lee 105 LSWC in my 9mm 1911 and my everday 9's. They shoot pretty well. My lead mix has them dropping out of the mold at 108-110gn and .358. I size them down to .357.

Haven't done a lot of testing, but—
Lee 358-105-SWC, shot as-cast and tumble lubed in LLA:
1.13-1.47" at 25 yards with 3.2gn 231/HP38 and 
~0.80" at 25 yards with 3.9gn 231/HP38 and
>11" at 25 yards with 5.4-5.9gn 231/HP38.

Has anybody worked out specific loads for 115g LSWC or 122gr?? I would like to use them for 25 yard practice.

I have 500 of the Penn 115gr coming. Just got notice they shipped. I will be testing a lot of different loads shortly (weather permitting). My local shop had Tightgroup, bluedot and WST on the shelve this morning. Now I have even more powders to test.

I load them to  abt 1500 fps in my .357 sig barrel....LOTS of noise but reasonable recoil.
