    Zero 147 Gr. 9mm HP Bullets

    Has anyone worked up a load for these before that you like? The idea is to get some of the recoil felt out for our lady shooters.
    We'er using either:
    Tight Group or, Unique for powder.
    Looking at maybe a OAL of 1.150 to 1.130.

    "Zero" ??? :confused:

    I load 147-gr 9mm (Berry's plated, flat point hollow base) for competitions. Don't quite know what Zero refers to....can you educate me?

    "Zero" is the manufacturer of the bullet. I'll post a pic here in a minute.

    This is the projectile used by Alanta Arms to manufacture the Team Glock ammo back in the day.

    147gr. JHP with .008 milled off the rear for easy seating I suppose.
    We loaded some up and it seems to be working pretty good. We ran 500 for some actual testing after working up the load.

    Hey, if it helps the gals shoot better, I'm all for it!

    I had a load formula for some 147 gr. Let me know if you're interested in it.
