That's great expansion for a 9mm, and what is the most impressive to me is the fact that the jackets are still intact!! Cool
Bravo Bill, I'd call this venture a success all the way around, how's the accuracy?

accuracy is next on my to do list mo, when i first loaded them up they went straight thru 16 inches of wax and kept on going so i had to make a bigger hp punch lol(fmj hollow points) now i got the expansion i was lookin for so i need to work on accuracy...bill

That's some great progress so far though. The accuracy will come with load development I'm sure. You can tweak your recipe, bullet seating depth, ect. to bring em around.
