Thanks for the link, it was a great read, and I will keep it. I have the dies now and I think I have some projectiles, once I am comfortable reloading 9mm, I will move to those and the others I plan to reload, so it's a great place to have so I can look at how it should be done.

If at first you don't succeed, then Skydiving is not your sport.

C.O.L.  -  tolerance keeps changing ???

My sweet load: IMR Powder, SR4756, 4.0grains @ COL .965
                         Primer WSP
                         Bullet - Berry's Plated 95gr. - .364
                         Case - Starline

I'm finding my COL tolerance keeps changing from .961 to .965 ...  Is this common when using Plated Bullets. However, it does not effect accuracy of this load.

I do not have this variance working up my 9mm Luger load using Lead Cone Nose Bullets

that is a very small variance that can be attributed to the bullets' ogive or "thickness" of plating or the stroke on the handle of your reloader.
if it does not affect accuracy and you still get tight groups then you're good to go and you should not worry about it.  :wink:

i load a lot of cmj bullets for 9mm luger.  unfortunately we can not get Berry's bullets where I live but I believe they are very good quality from what I read about them.

While Plated Round Nose & Full Metal Jacket 9mm Luger bullets still come to a certain degree of a point. Just like Lead Cone Nose. My Lee Seating Die accommodates them with precise C.O.L. But, the shape of 9mm Makarov is a different animal all together.

And since I don't have much experience (just a newbie) your advise is very much appreciated.

I looked up ogive (a new word) keep them coming  :smiley:
Question: Term used "CMJ" does C stand for CONE OR CONICAL? Here in US we use FMJ (full), TMJ (total), Flat Point, etc...
Please explain is CMJ used widely or a SA term???

Hi Steve

CMJ = Copper Metal Jacket.  These are copper plated lead bullets.   I assume that Berrys are copper plated bullets.
FMJ = Full Metal Jacket.  These are pressed copper caps filled with lead core and usually with lead exposed at the base of the bullet.

I will post some pics of the different bullets when I get home tonight.
