I just got my Lee Pro 1000 set up and have loaded a few rounds.
(This machine is NOT easy to get set up -- instructions are horrible)

I decided on Winchester Super Target (WST) powder and bought some 115 grain FMJ bullets to get rolling. I'm using the data at the Hodgdon/Winchester site for those.

But now I bought a pkg of 115 grain lead round nose bullets (ACME brand) to save some money. Problem is: I can't find any load data for LRN bullets using WSF powder.

Anybbody have any published data for that combo?

Or am I going to have to buy a different powder for loading those LRN bullets?

WST has never been recommended for the 9X19. It has been found to give erratic pressures from what I've read in the past.

If WST Is not great, how about Hodgdon "Clays" powder?

It would be fantastic if I could have just one powder to cover my 9mm and 12ga shotgun needs.

I have good luck using 4.4 gr. WST with Win 115 gr. JRN bullets at 1.130". This is an accurate load for me in several pistols and will function in all of them. Use other medium rate powders if you want max velocity.
