    Hick replied to a thread Berry's 7.62x39 heads in Our Town
    Berry's 7.62 x 39 123 grain plated (0.311). My 1909 Argentine Mauser likes them. I run them at about 1800 fps and they do just fine.

    With a 124 grain copper jacketed bullet in 9mm the Lee Manual says 4.1 gr Titegroup at 1150 fps. BUT, as noted above, that is the Max load-- so work up carefully.

    Hopefully, you will get a reply from someone who has a set available. But-- if you don't, look at Lee dies. I have a set from Lee and they are probably the least expensive-- and they do the job.

    I do it exactly as you describe (including tweezers and just a tap on the side of the container)-- but I only cook Smokes clear at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, not 25, and I don't get a rim at the base. The PC is so hard It stays on recovered...
