anyone loading 9mm for P320's?

Curious as to what your 9mm P320's like in terms of projectiles? I've only shot jacketed in mine so far. (nothing spectacular but that may be because I shoot the 1911's better than the 320) I'd also like to try some hi-tek or other coated bullets and to put in some real time with it this year.

Any stand outs?

I have shot jacketed (Everglades Ammo/Delta Precision), plated (Extreme and Berry's), and hi-tek coated (MO Bullet company) in my Sig P320 (carry/compact). As far as weights goes, I've been shooting mostly 124gr and 147gr projectiles. 124gr FMJ round nose with Bullseye might be the best combination for me so far. I have also liked 147gr FMJ round nose with Unique and 147gr hi-tek coated FP with Alliant Sport Pistol.

Been using 124gr, Speer TMJ, and Win 231 for practice shooting in my P320 M17. Good combo.
I do use Missouri Bullet Co, Hi Tek Bullseye #1. 200gr for my .45 1911 reloads and that has been great. I found a great price on the Speer TMJ 9mm so I stocked up! Never had any issues with the Missouri Bullet Co Hi Tek items.

I'm using 124 Speer TMJ's, 124 Rem MC's and 147 Speer TMJ's with TiteGroup and Bullseye.

Accuracy is very good.

These are the same loads in the Glock 34, SIG 226, and STI Ranger II.

My P320x5 Legion absolutely loves the Nosler 124gr JHP and N320 powder.

On my p320rx I had some trouble due to little or no lead-in chamfer using my preferred 124g flat nosed rounds from either Berry’s (preferred) or Missouri or ACME.

The chamfer-on the bullet would hit the chamber lead-in and cause the bullet to stand slightly proud. A few quick turns with a finish reamer to create a proper lead-in was the fix. My Springfield’s all seemed to have this problem and again a couple of quick turns with a finish reamer fixed it.

I’m currently loading some ACME 147g flat nose seems to be also a bit of a problem, but I’ll adjust the COL, Berry’s 147g flat nosed work fine.

Hornady XTP or HAP 115/124 gr. Everything else is second place or worse.
For coated, Brazos Bullets seem to be excellent. Not sure if they make 9 mm

For plinking ammo I am having really good luck with Gallant Coated 124s in my M17 and M18. Before Gallant I used Eggleston, but their prices skyrocketed and quality went downhill. Not a good combo.

Gallant was one I looked at base on past comments but they are sold out of all 9mm at the moment

I get it... I have a decent supply of JHP's (RMR and HAP) but in this instance, looking for a high volume, cheaper option for general range and steel plates.

I have [or have on the way] 5 different samples to test...

My P320 Franken Legion likes 124gr and 147gr plated bullets. My 124 load is 5.0 gr of Unique and my 147 is 3.4 gr. Of Titeflex... This photo is 73 rounds of 124 gr at 10 yds, two hands.

My wife's put a couple hundred jacketed through hers, but most of what she's shot in the last couple years has been 135gr RN coated from Bayou Bullets. I'm guessing she's done probably 600-800 of them without an issue, barrel hardly needs brushed after an afternoon of shooting.

My nephew's P320 likes the Xtreme 135 gr. loaded with VV N320 pretty well.

I've shot JHP (factory), FMJ (RMR and factory), plated (xtreme) and hi-tek coated (Blue Bullets) in 115 and 124/125 gr. and haven't had any issues with these. I find all of these to be more than accurate enough for plinking out to 25 yds. I've shot more of the Blue Bullets than the others I list simply because they are less expensive. So get busy and try something new.

I'm there also... it appears that the lands are almost squared off where they meet the throat, whereas my other 9mm's have a gentle taper/chamfer from throat to the full height of the lands.

Any projectile with a more blunt nose requires a reduced COL to chamber properly.

Regardless of the projectiles I end up with, a few turns with a throating reamer are in order.
