    9mm Reloading

    Hi all,

    New to 9mm reloading and wondering about 2 questions. Can .356 bullet flat nosed be used? and can you use small pistol Magnum primers?
    Any help on these questions would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    A 9mm is .355 so a .356 might be ok if it were not a flat nose, I am thinking that will cause too much drag, and if it is a lead bullet that is not recommended in a hex barrel.


    Any Magnum primer is really for larger loads, care must be taken when matching higher powered primers with recommended powder loads, over-pressure is a bad thing, ummkay ?


    FYI, Google is your friend : .356+bullet+be+used+for+reloading+9mm/clik here

    What reloading manual are you using?

    I use round nosed .356 9mm bullets... they work fine... are you shooting lead bullets? I have used flat nosed and hollow points also, but you have to be careful choosing your over all length... They might need to be a bit shorter... try loading up 50 or a hundred and shoot them to make sure they feed well in your gun... Then load more if those shoot well.

    People use magnum primers when that's all they can get... Like now... :-(

    Shouldn't be problem... Do you have a chronograph?

    Not a “flat nose” per se, but I’ve used truncated cone bullets with no problems.

    Nothing wrong with other bullet shapes.

    It's important to do the plunk test to make sure the OAL for that round is good for your gun.

    Truncated cone are usually jacketed bullets, my idea of flat nose is a semi/full wad cutter design, which will make the OAL real important.




    Agree with JB about the plunk test.
