    9mm boolit mihec group buy

    I am getting in on this 9mm group buy. Any of you shooting this boolit. What is your preferred coating/lube? (PC, Hitek, lube). usually I PC but don't like how it makes the nose larger. Hitek I am still a rookie. Traditional lube I have not done for years but may go back to it.
    Would also love to see some more interest in this one to get it made.

    The ogive is steep enough that coating doesn't have a meaningful impact on seating depth. I PC mine, standard lube groove with no problems. It is my favorite all around 9mm design. There are plenty others out there that work as well, but the 8 cavity is a great selling point and I find them to be quite accurate.

    thanks for the replies. It's nice to know I can PC this if I want. Now we need one more to make the group buy go live. I got to shoot some of these that were hitek coated and they shot the best from 4 different mold designs I have tried. A big thanks to those that have helped me out.

    I got a few of these to try from a member here. I had several different styles of cast and this one out shot them all. Maybe I just nailed it with the load on this one but the group was a third the size of the rest, but I did shoot off hand and maybe got lucky. Looks like one more is needed to go live on this buy. I also just switched to sport pistol for PC. Use if for everything else too and so far I like it. use a few tenths more then TG to get the same velocities but with out the heat of TG

    I loaded and shot them all so can't tell you. My OAL loaded was 1.085. That was so they would chamber in my 1911 which is tight, I can go longer for my sig/glock and even walther. It is a flat point so OAL will be shorter then a round nose. This is close to the NOE design you could look at that design to get an idea.

    Sorry for late answer, Yes, I live in Europe. We have guns, we shoot and we hunt. Many people reload. Few of us cast and swage our bullets.

    MP has few 359-125 in stock, he finally start to put all his moulds on his web page, including many overrun mould from past years. With lube groves and penta HP they come 130grs with soft alloy. Remove lube groves and HP and I get 140grs.

    Yeah I knew you did, was hoping someone state side has one. Tempted on the 125 but this GB is my compromise for the 147 grain cast that give me fits loading.

    Good to hear it is a great little bullet I think you will like it but I’ve accumulated quite a collection of 9mm moulds that don’t work great for me so it’s always nice to try a few out before getting another mould

    I've got the 4cav brass HP version of this design and also the 8 cav aluminum version. I absolutely love this boolit in my 9mm.

    Got 100 of these and love the design. OAL about 1.085 which is about right from a flat point. These shoot great. I powder coated some as well. Can't wait till we get 5 more guys on the GB so it will get here by spring.

    Iíve switched to this mold for all 9mm. I use solid smooth side and I hitek them. They are brilliant and from an 8cav aluminum mold they rain baby. High recommend.

    I will say that this round did produce a few flyers from my new pc carbine. And when I say fliers I mean FLIERS! like I was shooting at a dirt berm maybe 30yd and they were in a predictable place then suddenly one hit like 20í to the left. Still scratching my head on that one.
