    I'm getting ready to do some reloads for my C-QS. I've got 124 gr. plated RN and Titegroup powder but wanted to know if anyone had a recommendation for how much powder to use? Thanks in advance.

    Eddy, The Hodgdon website lists the following;
    125 GR. LCN Hodgdon Titegroup .356" 1.125"
    3.6 1002 22,900 CUP PF=
    4.0 1096 30,400 CUP PF=

    LCN = Lead Conical Nose
    Berry bullets are plated and closer to lead then regular jacketed bullets, thus you'll want to start with the lead loads and work up watching for pressure signs.
    As 9mm in your gun would only be used with Minor Power Factor (125,000), you'll need to go a touch above the lowest listing.
    I would probably start there (3.6) and see how it acted in my gun, remembering to ALWAYS, start 10% below the listing to add a bit safety for possible mistakes.
    Good Luck
