    X-Treme 9mm 115gr RN Load Data

    Can anyone give me some starting load data for X-Treme 9mm 115GR RN bullets? I picked up a bag of 500 at the gun show yesterday but, of course, X-Treme doesn't publish load data. Note: I'm using HS-6 and these are plated rounds, decent for blowing off at the range.

    I've consulted my Lyman reloading manual and the Hodgdon reloading site (see screenshot). I'm thinking that 4.7gr of HS-6 is a good place to start. What do you think?

    Trouble with HS-6 is that it is a slow burner, and it is best used in heavier bullets at higher speeds. With plated bullets, you don't want to exceed 1200 fps, and that is where HS6 is at its best. At 4.7 gr HS6 may not cycle your gun reliably.

    I would use a faster burning powder such as W 231/HP-38 with 115 gr. bullets, and use load data for lead bullets. Check out the Hodgedon load data site...good info:

    Thanks :) I was afraid of that. I've got some Bullseye on the way -- that's about as fast as you can get.

    If all else fails, use the powder designed for mid-range to moderately heavy loads in medium calibers - Unique.

    Just use the data for 115 grain lead bullets.

    I burn more Unique in pistol cartridges than all other powders I have, combined.

    Dont know about the 115's, but save the HS6 for 124 Jhp's and use 6.7 gr (double check any data!) seated to 1.125 (double check any data!!!). This a fantastic load from my 4" Auto. Good Luck

    Wish I could help you out with HS6 data. I used to shoot a lot of it, but changed to WSF. 5.5gr WSF with that bullet loaded to 1.125" OAL does a solid 1150fps from a 4 inch barrel.

    Aren't the x-treme bullets like the Barnes-x all copper bullets? If they are they're longer and have different loadings then lead and jacketed bullets. Call the powder manufacture for load data.

    No, Xtreme is copper plated over a lead core. Barnes is solid copper. Very different.
