Reloading 9mm Luger Ammunition Cases

My friend and I reload our own ammunition for shooting pistols at the range. I reload only 9mm and he reloads 9mm, 380 ACP and .45 ACP. Over the past few years we must have reloaded roughly 18,000 rounds each. 95% of our reloading is for 9mm for use in our Glock 17, Glock 19 and Glock 26 pistols.

All my 9mm reloads over the past two years were made from range pickup cases, Wolf primers and 115 gr round nose jacketed bullets. The powder used was Hodgdon Titegroup smokeless powder. All reloads fired without problem. This is the recipe we both use. It seems to work OK (over 30,000 reloads made and fired).

Bullets: 115 grains jacketed
TiteGroup powder: 4.6 grains
Overall Length: 1.155” +/- 0.003”

9mm Reloads Not Working Right

March 15, 2012
i got a 6in slide kit for my p189 para now my reloads will not work right i am using winchester wst powder 3.8g how hi can i go. i went from a 5in to a 6in slide? thank you.

Response - Bob,
The length of the slide of your gun shouldn't make any difference with regard to your powder load. A proper 9 mm reload should shoot in any 9mm gun. If your gun was shooting properly before your modification but not after, I would suspect something is wrong with the modification. I would first verify that your modified gun works well with different types of factory ammo first. If it does, then look into your reloading recipe. I cannot tell you how high to go on your powder load. Good luck,

Reply - Thank you for the info. Tried it and it seemed to work.
