Hi guys, I'm new to the forum but a friend recommended your place to me to ask some questions.  So here goes...

I've got several pounds (12 left to be exact) of Solo 1000 that I've been using for .45 ACP and .38 Special.  Well, I've ran out of Titegroup that I was using for my 9mm loads and I can't find any locally.  So, I need your help in giving me some load info for using Solo 1000 and 9mm 124 gr Montana Gold bullets.  I'm using Federal SP's with Winchester cases.  Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!

there might be some info here that you can work around for a starting load.  the little digging i did makes it sound like solo1000's a better powder with the heavier bullets (i.e. 147) in the 9 but obviously, some folks are using it as you would like to.

Thanks for the info.  That is rather sad!  I searched the glockpost forums but apparantly I failed at searching right.  So, according to the old Scot Powders, with 124 gr and Solo 1000 I need to keep it between 3.7 and 4.1 grs. 

I'm hoping I can run across someone on here who has messed with both and that person can give me the good/bad and all that.

SSRage, I have an old Scot Powder manual that specifies 3.7 to 4.1gr of Solo 1000 with a 124gr Hornady FMJ. They list a mv of 1028fps at the 4.1 charge, with a pressure of 31,600 cup. From the maximum volume used, they state 103%. The velocity was taken from a 4" bbl.

This info is from Scott's manual of 1992, so you might want to use the starting load first. No telling if they have changed the composition in those 17 years.. :thumbs:

Here is the information that I have:

Solo 1000-3.6grains with my 149gr 9mm. 4.1 grains of 9mm and a 115gr gives a little over 1000fps

I think this came from one of the Glock groups.
