That is exactly how I use them in 9mm. Simply pick a powder, look up the FMJ data for the powder I want to use, and start halfway between min and max. Never had a load that failed to function right off the bat. Never had an ounce of leading, either.

Most loads selected that way match factory fodder pretty well.
