    HS-6 Berry's plated 115gr 9mm recipe

    I've been loading 124gr for years with HS-6. I couldn't get a hold of any 124 and bought 115gr (plated round nose). I don't have anything that says how much powder I should use.

    Plated bullets should not be loaded using FMJ data they are loaded to Lead data.

    Contact Jay Phillips at Berry's. Jay was with Dillon before he went to Berry's. He may have an answer for you.

    From the Berry's web site:

    115 gn Rocky Mountain Plated RN with 6.8 gn of HS-6 is the most accurate out of my M&P9 at 1199 fps. Works fine in my wifes Glock 19 as well.
