    Just starting to reload again after 40+ yrs - 9mm - Bullseye - 115gr.Winchester bullet - Fed. primers
    Most charts I find have B/E for 90gr and again for 147gr but nothing in between.
    Is this Not a good powder??
    Load is 4.3 to 4.8
    Thanks for any info you can send

    Welcome to TFF, Ron.

    4.3 grains of Red Dot works for me with Berry's or Rainier's plated 124 grain 9mm bullet. This is a light load but it functions fine in all my 9mm pistols. You might want to go to 4.6 grains with a FMJ bullet.

    I loaded 10 each from 4.3 to 5.0 and shot them last night...best groups @ 25' came with the 4.5 to 4.8..
    I've also found a lot of different over all length. My factory are running 1.15.25 so I've stayed the same with my reloads. Shooting a B.92fs
    Thanks for the welcome and replies,
    Ron
