Hornady 9mm Luger load data


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


If anybody has a Hornady book handy I would surely appreciate knowing what their recommended OAL is for the 115 grain HAP bullet.

My #7 doesn't list the hap but it lists the 115 gr xtp at 1.075 and fmj rn at 1.100. This may help

Thank you, that does help.

I've been using the Vihtavouri data for the XTP and they call for an OAL of 1.142 which doesn't look right. I've shot about a hundred rounds at that length and they feed fine through my Glock and seem to be quite accurate.

May start over at the starting loads with the deeper seating and see how that does.

Remember the following:
From Western Powder manual:
SPECIAL NOTE ON CARTRIDGE OVERALL LENGTH “COL”
It is important to note that the SAAMI “COL” values are for the firearms and ammunition manufacturers industry and must be seen as a guideline only.
The individual reloader is free to adjust this dimension to suit their particular firearm-component-weapon combination.
This parameter is determined by various dimensions such as
1) magazine length (space),
2) freebore-lead dimensions of the barrel,
3) ogive or profile of the projectile and
4) position of cannelure or crimp groove.

Note from this that the manual's COL is NOT a recommendation for YOU but is simply a statement of the COL they used, possibly based on the maximum COL SAAMI specified for industry testing of that cartridge and NOT for actual ammunition loading. COL if determined by your gun and the bullet and the manaul's COL is no more than the minimum COL that the data applies to with those specific lots of components used.

If they shoot well and are accurate why mess with changing anything?I know not everybody likes to keep things simple and tinkering can be half the fun I guess but if the load is that satisfactory it seems to me that it should be left as is.

The 8th edition Hornady handbook lists their 115 grain bullets at;

HP-XTP = COL 1.075

FMJ-RN = COL 1.100

Sorry I don't see a HAP listed

Supposedly the HAP bullet is about the same shape as the XTP. They don't list Viht N340 loads by any chance with that 115 grain xtp?

Shot a few today loaded to 1.085 oal length and they did better. Been reloading for 40 years but just now have taken up loading for a self starting pistol.

Nope, no loads for the N340 with 115 grain in my manual. However they do have loads listed for VIHT N350 and 3N37.

Thanks for looking anyways. 5.0 grains of the n340 seems to be a good load.
