I have a bunch of 125gn HAP bullets but there is no load data in my Hornady manuel. Since I am new to reloading I hesitate to expermint to much....

I will be using mixed brass, federal primers and unique powder, looking for a load that will make 125 pf out of my g19

If there's info on their XTP JHP's, you can use the same info. Otherwise, a search here for similar bullets like zero's will probably be close. As always, start low and work your way up as all bbls are different.

Look and see what Alliant shows for data on 124/125 gr jacketed bullets.

While you can use those bullets in a 9mm, Hornady insists that they are intended for 38 Super which is why you won't find published load data for them. I ran some through my G19 using Titegroup. I don't recall the exact load, but it was the same as any 124gr JHP.

4.7 gr of Unique under 125 gr Honady jacketed gave me Avg PF of 127 out of my CZ85. Should be close to that in your G 17. What diameter are those bullets?

Exactly, these are for 38 super or SC and not 9mm

You might want to measure them to see what the diameter is. Some are .3555 and others go to .356 depending upon the press they came out of at the factory. It's basically an XTP without the expansion cuts in the hollowpoint except for the diameter variations. I use them in a 9X23 with great accuracy and no pressure problems, but I'm loading for NRA Action Pistol and only have to make a 120,000 PF.

YMMV

121 HAP over 8.8 grs HS6 - major 9mm. Didn't switch bullets when I went from super to 9mm 2 years ago. I've had very good luck with these...although sometimes they don't go where I tell them to. :rolleyes:
