Default 9mm 125 gr. And power pistol

Hey guys I've recently picked up a few pounds of power pistol powder and I have some extreme 124 gr, plated round nose, I'd like to know if any of you have any real world experience with this combo? I know what Alliant says about it, and I've read a bunch online, if any of y'all have hands on experience I'd like to hear what you think of power pistol, and if you have a favorite load, I've already made a few test rounds at low to mid powder levels but I can't get to the range till the weekend to try them

I've used that combination many times. PP is one of my favorite powders for semi-autos.

Use the middle of the range for the load data and work up from there. It seems PP likes to load for hotter than milder loads. But like I said, try a middle of the range first. Go from there.

6.2 gr. of PP behind a 124 gr. plated RN yields 1197 fps for me out of a Glock 19. I like it!

No PP powder but......

I have loaded the Xtreme RN plated from 1.12" to a long 1.165"

The short OAL is best for maximum fps with less powder but a
long 1.165 OAL can also get there but with a lot more powder.

Have fun.
