As I have posted in the recent past, I have been fiddling with loads for a Ruger LC9s 9mm. A couple of forum members sent me a variety of lee 9mm bullets to try and the 356-120-TC at an as cast weight of 122.6 grns proved to work fine in this pistol and be wonderfully accurate with a charge of Alliant unique.
Rather than take a chance on ending up with an undersized Lee mold, I bought an NOE four cavity 358-128-SWC which is also a truncated cone bullet. However, the NOE mold Drops castings at 130.5 gns.
Herein lies the problem. So, not being able to find suggested 9mm Unique data in any of my manuals for a 130 grn bullet, I reduced the charge to what I thought would be appropriate for the NOE at 130 and loaded some.
The accuracy was still there but I was immediately and rudely informed by the little Ruger, not to do that again, ever!!! So, now, murphy has arrived
After searching the net, I did run across an old topic on another forum where a member was also looking for 9mm unique loads for a 130 grn bullet. One of the guys replied with this.
From a Lyman manual
130 grn cast
Start ---3.5 grns.
Max ---4.0 grns
OAL -- 1.016"
My question is --- Can any one reference this data in any Lyman manual? I can't with what I have.
