    Default 9mm 124gr berry's plated FP bullseye recipes?

    I was exclusively loading 115 gr 9mm with 4.5 grs of Bullseye behind either Berry's plated flat nose or Hornady FMJ round nose at 1.076 OAL with great success.
    I am looking to switch it up and use a 124 grs Berry's plated flat nose. I am having trouble finding load data for what I use.
    Do you guys have any recipes I can consider?

    Thanks.

    4.5 gr. of bullseye should work fine. I run 4.4 gr. in both 115 and 125 gr. bullet loads in my 9. I'm using poly coated bullets.

    The 125 gr are truncated cone, loaded to 1.110" OAL. My 115 gr RN are loaded to 1.090 OAL. I run poly coated through a Glock and an xD with excellent results.

    You either load plated bullets using LEAD bullet data or you load per the manufacturer's instructions, with most now calling for loading with jacketed load data from the START load to min-range.
    Per Berry's:
    Please consult load data books or your powder manufacturers' website for load information. You can use any published data as long as it is the same weight (FMJ, Lead, Plated, etc.)
    -Standard Plate Bullets max velocity- 1,250 fps.
    -Thick Plate Bullets (TP) max velocity- 1,500 fps.
    For SAAMI MAX COL specs or OAL of the bullet please click HERE.
    We recommend a light crimp on the bullet, just enough to put pressure against the bullet without denting or deforming the plating. If you were to pull the bullet out of a case with the proper crimp you would find no more than a scratch on the surface of the plating. If you are denting or deforming the bullet, your accuracy will suffer and the bullet may start to tumble before it hits the target.
