I'm new to reloading 9mm Luger and casting bullets in general. I have cast quite a few .356 dia 124 gr TC bullets from a Lee 6 Cavity mold I bought. The bullets have been lubed with LLA lube and sized then lubed again to .356 dia.
I have looked in Lee's reloading manual and it's not showing any load data for the 124 grain lead bullets, just 125 grain jacketed bullets. Would it be safe to use this data for these lead bullets? The material used to cast them was straight clip on wheel weights.
I have alliant Red Dot, Bullseye, Blue Dot and Unique. What do you recommend for these weight bullets? I will be shooting them out of a CM9 and a S&W 909.
I have several pounds of Red dot so if I could use that up, that would be great. It shows a starting load with a 125 grain bullet to be at 4.3 grains and a max at 4.6 grains.
From what I have read also, the biggest thing when reloading 9mm is to make sure they are the minimum overall length to keep pressure's down and them feeding in the pistols.
Sorry if I sound ignorant or my terminology is wrong. I'm still learning here!
