    Question 122gr LSWC

    I am begging someone to help me find a charge weight for some 122gr LSWC in 9mm. I don't care what powder. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Just use any data that you find for the 125 grainers.

    The 122 stated weight is minus the lube. After you lube it, it'll probably be right around 125 grains anyway.

    You should have no issues with that.

    From the 46th edition of the Lyman manual, published in the early 1970s. Showing data for their bullet No. 356402 and says it would also be appropriate for their bullet No. 358242. Both are shown to be 121 grains in weight.

    Bulls-Eye: 3.5 grains (990 fps) to 4.8 grains (1212 fps)
    Red Dot: 3.6 grains (996 fps) to 5.0 grains (1197 fps)
    Unique: 4.4 grains (999 fps) to 6.0 grains (1243 fps)
    Herco: 4.6 grains (952 fps) to 6.1 grains (1183 fps)

    Can probably dig up more later in the day from a newer Lyman cast bullet manual.

    Man...I thought my books were old...

    My earliest is a 1980 Hornady.
