    158 Gr. 9MM load data from LYMAN 44th.... help!

    I have heard of numerous reports of heavy 9MM load data (ie: 358311 RN) listed in the LYMAN 44th Edition reloading manual.

    I thought 'fer sure' that I had one of these floating around... but I'm now thinking that I gave it to someone.

    Any folks out there in CB land that could possibly fill in the blanks for me (cell phone pic of the data would be GRAND...)

    Let's see if anyone keeps these old manuals... besides me (for the most part).

    Thanks in advance for any and all input.

    I shoot a 153 grain powder coated round nose in my 9mm. 2.9 gr Titegroup at 870 fps, 3.2 gr HP-38 at 850 fps or 3.3 gr CFE Pistol at 860 fps. All velocities are out of a Walther P1. These are all loaded with Winchester small pistol standard primers. Haven't gone up to 158 grains yet.

    Back in the 90's we burned a lot ( a lot ='s 1000's) of the lyman 358311 rn bullets in 6" bbl'd 9mm bbl.'s fitted to 1911's. Used the lyman 44 data and herco powder.

    I had luck with PC'd 4g Unique behind 160g Lee RFN suppressed in a G34, G19 & M&P9.
    Uee at your own risk as YMMV.
