If you are reading this, you found our new Sierra Blog post selection. For those of you that found it another way other than through our website, go to our www.sierrabullets.com website, highlight ‘Resources’ and click on ‘Sierra Blog’ to see the latest posts. This was formally called the X-Ring, a publication that we sent out by mail, way back when. It has evolved since then but I’m hopeful I’ll be able to post those old entries again; I think I still have them all in some form or another. If anyone is interested, let me know.
Until then, a lot of shooters are requesting load data for the 9mm Luger cartridge using our 147gr bullets, and I’m here to deliver the report I was given. The short and sweet of it, this is data for standard pressures as well as +P pressures, so know what you have and what you can work with safely. Only use the data that fits your components and remember to begin at the listed start load and work up from there. Both projectiles are listed for sale on our website, in some box count or another, and you should also be able to find them through your favorite store by now.
