Titegroup, VV, etc.

Post by devildog on Tue Jan 17, 2017 12:08 pm

In perusing this site and others for some starter information on light 9mm loads, I have seen a good bit of info on N330 and N340. Does not look like N330 is readily available at this point in time. Is N340 a reasonable substitute?

I have loaded literally thousands of 9mm rounds with Titegroup for steel and USPSA. Was concerned with power factor, etc. Any luck with Titegroup and 115g JHP for light loads? If nothing else it is clean and has been reasonably available.

N340 feels and shoots very similarly to N330. 

Try 4.2 gr of Titegroup for 115 gr 9mm bullets. It's accurate in my 9mms.

A friend who spent a lot of time developing a very accurate 9mm load (5.0gr N330 115gr XTP) told me N340 shoots essentially identical with the same load.

+1 on the N340, I am using 5.4gr of WSF to maintain 1,100 FPS, very satisfied.  I couldn't find any N340 when I got my 9 and bought 8lb of WSF.

Been shooting 4.8gr of N340 in 9mm for service pistol for about seven years.
Ran out of my 115gr Sierra Tournament Masters a while back and switched to 115gr XTP's (more accurate load now).

Plan this year is to work up a load for the M52-1.

Have 4#'s of it.
Might as well use it.

Thanks for the responses.  I can get both N340 and Titegroup fairly easily.  I will probably play with both.

While I am playing, what causes people to use XTP vs. HAP?  Look to be very similar, so what is it about the "terminal performance" of the XTP that makes it special with regard to target shooting?

3.8 TG under 120 cast TC or 4.2 WSF under the same. Both are extremely accurate out of my nines. I've tried 5.4 WSF and it's just too snappy for my needs.

5.2 gr Winchester Autocomp, 1.09", Remington brass with a Zero 115 gr conical bullet work great in 1911 and revolvers.

In my, admittedly limited, experience XTP, HAP and Zero all shoot well. My friend said the XTPs shot best. I trust him. I haven't ransom rested 9mm but all shot to call.
