I'd like to know if anyone has any pet loads for a 5906 using 147gr. FMJ's.

Thanks!

OK, let's take the 5906 out of the equation. ;)

Anyone have a load they like for this bullet weight?

Sorry LeMat, I can't help you as I'm not currently loading for the 9mm. I am surprised this thread has sat idle for so long though.

isn't there some voodoo hoodoo about 147 grain loads?

Don't have any chronograph data with these, but here are two I tried for awhile. They both shot higher than I liked in my Glock and BHP, so I eventually went back to the 124 grainers.

9mm 147gr.FMJ + 5.5gr HS-6/W-540 (~1000fps est.) OAL-1.160"
9mm 147gr.FMJ + 4.8gr Herco (~1000fps est.) OAL-1.160"

I never could get them to work quite right in a Browning High Power or a Colt. That was way back when they were first offered - the Eighties, I think. Not sure of that - my memory of things 9mm is foggy and incoherent. Haven't tried them since.

Let me know how they work in a 5906.
