9x19mm 124gr +P Gold Dot Replica Load

Speer Gold Dot 124gr., plated hollow point bullet
7.8 grains Alliant Blue Dot, seems to be a compressed load
1.12" OAL (factory spec)
any brass
Federal Small Pistol Primer, or Wolf Small Pistol Primer
This load will get you just a shade under 1200fps from a Glock 17, which is really close to the Speer factory load, and Georgia Arms Sheer Power Plus load.
I don't get any noticeable primer flattening. Federal primers flattened a bit (they always do), but Wolf primers come out looking like factory ammo. The Blue Dot gives off a pretty descent fireball, and is pretty loud.
