I`ve been using: (with GREAT success)
Hodgdon CFE-Pistol powder (4.9 grains)
Berry`s Plated 124 round nose (seated 1.150)
Winchester Primers (WSP)

Be careful not to use a heavy crimp or it will crush most any plated bullets.
I keep the crimp at .380max at the case mouth after i`ve crimped it.

PLEASE be aware, that this is MY own load i worked up, so approach with caution.
Just because i dont have high pressure signs, does NOT mean YOU wont.

I would caution using HS6, its not one of my recommendations to use in the 9mm.
Same goes for titegroup... a tiny powder change can change pressures REALLY quick. Biggest reason i wont use it.

My basic 9X19mm load is 4.4grs VV N320 with a 115gr JRN.

Been shooting it for many years now.

Where did you find silhouette? I have been looking for that for some time. I would not expect that to be a good powder for 9mm. I wanted it for hot .357 and .44.

I have been loading X-treme 147's over BE-86 in both .356 and .357 diams. I bought the larger bullets by mistake, but loaded them up. They shot fine. I do not recall the recipe that I found best (I think 4.5 grains)

I also loaded up some SNS coated 124's over BE-86 as well. They shot fine, but smokey.

Lately I have been using Lyman M dies for the expander and I am happy with them. No shaving the plating or coatings.

I never have on 40 call.

But seeing it a lot on 9mm.
Was wondering if you can get away with not crimping?

Yes. The seating die also performs a taper crimp. The amount of crimp applied is determined by the depth the outer die body is set.

I'm sure your seating die functions the same, as it's pretty much an industry standard.

You can back off on the die depth a bit, then use a separate crimp die if you prefer.

That's what I do when loading .45acp, but it's not necessary.

I'm shooting 124gr Extreme rn, load them with 4.2 grns of Titegroup WSP primers at 1.15" and a crimp just to remove the bell. Been using them for a couple years and have pretty good accuracy with them, usually am shooting at twenty five feet or so, nothing too far out.

All bullets used in these loads are 115 gr RMR Plated bullets.
5.9 grs Alliant Unique powder
4.5 grs Hodgdon TiteGroup powder
6.3 grs Alliant Power Pistol powder
All these work great for me. Worked up all loads from minimum.
All loads were benched for accuracy at 7 yds.
The TiteGroup loads were so accurate that grouped in a penny sized group

I run TiteGroup for most all of my 9mm needs. 4.0 with Berrys 124 gr RN, and 4.2 with either Rem Golden Sabre 124's or Nosler Sporting JHP 124's. All are extremely accurate for me in any of my 9mm guns.

Edited to add...I do run a seperate crimp die to .375 just for good measure. I normally have enough neck tension that it's likely not necessary.

.375 seems a bit excessive to me, but if it works for you, its all good.
