I've been on a quest for about the last 4 years trying to find an accurate 9mm lead load. Sunday I'm going to be testing 147gr Bushwacker lead flat point bullets using Unique & Blue Dot. I have great hopes for the Blue Dot load. It was extremely accurate for me with Remington 147gr JHP's. I'll report back on this thread after I try it.

Although Titegroup is my "standard" powder for all of my 45 & 9mm loads, I thought a slower powder would be better for the 147gr bullet.

Good shooting.....Rod.

Had disappointing results yesterday with 147gr LFP and two different loads of 4.5gr Unique and 6.2gr Blue Dot. 25yard sandbag rest, 5-shot groups, averaged 4" for both. The best single group was 3" for 5-shots, with the best 4 of the 5 measuring 1.375". This was with the blue dot load.

Of course it could be my shooting ability or the gun itself. :)

I'm going to keep experimenting. I know that "perfect" 9mm lead load is out there. :D
