    Smoking Gun reload help

    Whatever I reload and put into a glock gen 5 pistol 9mm or my M&P 9mm, it smokes. It doesn't smoke in my MPX. I have used titegroup, power pistol and blue dot powder. I have used berrys bullets and the red extremes and black coated bullets also. I have used 5.9 grains of Power pistol with a 115 grain bullet. I have used 5.0 and 5.3 of power pistol with extreme 124 red bullets. I think that I have cleaned the pistol good enough by just taking the slide off and spraying and wiping down with CLP. Has anyone else had a problem like this? I seat the bullets at the longest recommended measurement.

    Thanks for any help.

    How long is the barrel in the MPX?

    There's your answer. The powder burns more completely in the longer barrel than in the shorter.

    BTW, I also have an 8.5" MPX. It's a ton of fun to shoot. Bought it on a whim on Sig Day at C2 around a year and a half ago. Let everyone in my squad shoot it and as a result, 2 of them also bought 8.5" MPXs. I use a Romeo5 on it as well as BUIS.

    I used mine for Javelina hunting. Never saw one, but it was light enough it weight for me to carry every day with 2 25 round mags. Yes they are fun to shoot, too.

    Thanks for the help Flash. I have found other recipes that work better.
