    Default Sierra Bullet Question

    Gents, for those of you who reload, I'd appreciate your feedback. While going through my reloading supplies, I came across some boxes of Sierra bullets. 3 boxes of 95gr. JHP (.363) and one box of 100 gr FPJ (.363). All boxes marked 9MM Makarov. The flat points look interesting having exposed lead on the flat point nose. What caught my eye was the diameter (confirmed with a caliper) as I was expecting .364. Anyone ever load any of these? Acceptable shooting results? Your feedback / comments are appreciated.

    If there were any issues it would be accuracy but I don't think you will have that either. .363 might be a little small for a lead bullet but a jacketed one should be fine. I don't think Sierra would be out of spec.

    The Sierra was a very good bullet. Corbon used it when they loaded the best JHP round for the 9mm Makarov. Sierra, Hornady and Speer Gold Dot were the very best in my opinion.
