Reloading a 147gr Speer TMJ FN Help!!

I'm shooting a FS MP9...I've been reloading some ammo for myself and i wanted to try some 147gr TMJ FN...so i bought some loaded them..4.1 grs aol was 1.169..i could nt find any data in my books or on the net..but i did find the hodgon data, but no listing...Im useing WSF powder..CCI primers and Speer 147gr TMJ FN....I took the data from their FMJ with WSF powder 4.0 to 4.3 grs and seated bullets to 1.169...Ive been told this is incorrect for the speer bullet..Can someone help me out...he says bullets are not seated enough and my charge is too high? I loaded 25 of them...and i'm willing to tear them apart and start over...the bullets do fit in my mag and seat fine in the mp..confused

Ok shot them yesterday....min was 3.7 and max was 4.1...they shot pretty good...hardly no recoil on the 3.7 had 2 jams so the 3.7 is a no go.....shot them at max and they were perfect...very accurate...so im bumping them down to 4.0 grns....that should be the ticket and the oal was 1.169...at max...Rusty

3.7 to 3.9 WSF (FS M&P at 3.7, the latter for my P226) is what I shoot for 147 gr Lead RN. Jacked bullets will require more as you found out (Hodgdon web site has WSF data). I should note that the M&P has Apex kit, 4 lb striker spring, 12 Wolf recoil spring (requires Federal primers).
