9mm lead load?
Now that I've developed good/accurate/standardized 9mm and 9mm+P loads for Remington 124gr Golden Saber, 115 and 124gr JHP; and Speer 115 and 124gr Gold Dots; has anybody found a good lead bullet load for 9mm?

Since I no longer do any of my own casting any ideas on a decent brand of cast bullet for 9mm in the 115gr range?
I'm thinking of going cast the way copper is getting these days even the plated bullets are getting higher priced.

9mm lead loads
It all depends on what you are shooting the lead from...
Glocks will handle lead if you clean 'em religiously plus the rifling issue (never have seen proof that it causes KAbooms) just speculation...
I have a Styer GB with delayed blowback that vents internal to the slide and that's a UNHOLY mess, plus it has a unique rifling that isn't all that accurate with lead.
Autos tend to run dirty, bit gassy ya know...
lead is dirty by nature, and add wax & burnt and unburnt powder to the mix..
The big thing I learned is to keep the speed down, so you don't melt the lead too much as it travels down a bbl with a flame on it's ass.
Lead works, it's just I'd rather be shootin' than cleanin'
I spend the few extra pennies and get the plated stuff now.
