Karma! Sample bag of Bayou 9mm 147gr FP bullets.
There are approximately 100 bullets in the bag, I took a few out to test fit. NOTE: Heavy lead coated bullets have been know not to shoot well in polygon rifling such as HK and Glock uses.

Anyway, rules:
Must live in the US
Must currently reload
Pick a number between 1 and 99, closest without going over wins
I would appreciate feed back on loading and shooting experience, but not required.
Lastly, if you don’t use them all, please pass them on.


Karma ends on 3JUL18 midnight Mountain Time.

Please include me. I reload for 9mm and I prefer a heavy bullet.

93 is my pick.

Please include me. I'll take #22.

I've been reloading for 35 years, but only started loading for semi-auto pistols about 10 years ago.

I shoot that bullet weight in USPSA, great accuracy and recoil is a non issue with the right propellant combo at 900 fps, plus or minus a little to suit. A nice karma, not participating, just commenting.

I load 147 gr over VV320 and they shoot great out of the 320.
I’ll go with 47.

Thanks !

Since 47 is gone, I will take 89.

My Sig P Series thank you.

Bump!

I currently shoot a 145gr coated bullet from Summers Enterprises but I wanted to test another brand of heavies. I have decided that I’ll stay heavy but with a round nose.

I will pick #69
I reload for 9mm, never tried 147 yet.

I'll take # 39.
As for 9mm; once I began loading specifically for the chamber (COL) in my M&P 9 Pro, things got better. I size them specifically for that gun. Then, by trying different recoil springs, I found the one that works best in terms of ejection and slide speed/movement. It really made a difference.
Thank you for the opportunity!

All I load anymore is 9mm and always looking for new bullets to try, especially heavier subsonic loads.
I'll pick #27.
Thanks!

69, dude!

I use these for subsonic loads for my suppressor.

I dont currently load 9mm luger but I'd like to start. I do load for a few like calibers using that bullet currently.

I have never reloaded nor shot 147gr lead before, I'd like to give it a shot (pun intended).

97 is my guess, thanks for the chance.
