    Always follow established, published load data. Never use a 'recommended' load unless it is as stated.

    Some people on the innernet and whatnot ask "how do I make 9mm major?" (which is beyond +P++ and no real loading data even exists for even +P+).. and some answer perhaps cavalierly, "add a couple grains a powder!". Don't do that though, even though that's the way it actually works.
    Get some handloading manuals.. they've been around for a long time if memory serves.

    Forum's of any type is a bad place to get recipes for reloading and the same goes for legal advice........

    7.0 of power pistol makes 9 major with 124gr X Treme plated. I worked it up with a chronograph, also had no pressure signs.

    Changed it to 7.2 and got no sign and got it to chronograph just above 9 major at 1340 fps /1320 or was it 1140.... LOL

    Get a chronograph and go up slow. And don't use a fast powder. ... bullseye aa#2 or 231 etc.

    Get no faster that power pistol or aa#5. And leave 9mm major for us that shoot competition with compensated barrels.

    Be safe!
