    Bumping because I have an unused can of Rex 0 that I want to load.

    Primary wanting to use with 45 ACP 200gr LSWC.

    And, if it is close to BE or TG in burn rate maybe some 9mm 125gr LRN plinking loads.

    TIA

    Thanks for all the Rex 3 powder pistol information. I have the booklet from Grafs but there isn't much in it.

    Just on the off chance. Does anyone have Rex 1 data for 9mm? Burn rate indicates it to be Red Dot ish.

    I may try 2.5 grains with a 124 and work up from there. But if anyone has some data it would save me some time (as well as bullets and primers) and I'd appreciate it.

    4.2 grains yields 786 fps with the 230. No signs of pressure, etc. I'm probably safe at 4.5. I'll try that next.
