I recently acquired some CFE Pistol but need some advice as to what you think a good and safe charge range would be for a MontanaGold 124g JHP.
I have found a couple of different load data sets for these bullets:
125gr Sierra FMJ OAL 1.090" (.355 diameter)
max 5.1gr 1118fps 33,000psi (reduce by 10% to start)
124gr BERB HBRN TP (.356 diameter) OAL 1.150"
4.9 - 5.5gr
like I said it is for the MG 124g JHP which has a diameter of .355" ( I don't know if .356 dia would make a significant difference in pressures ). I will be starting with an OAL of about 1.120" as this works pretty good with this bullet and other powders in my gun.
If it were you, how would you proceed? Thanks!
