    Good day.
    Could anyone please advise me if these rounds look normal? It's the first 9mm rounds that I reloaded and to me it seems burnt a bit excessively.

    Thanks

    Can you provide more info about the load itself?

    Sure:
    Sfera CMJ 124gr
    PmP and Magtech brass
    MP200 propellant @ 4.2 gr.

    Is it not because MP200 burns slower?

    What is the speed you get through the chrony? It does not look excessive to me, but you can never really know until you know how fast they are going. MP200 is not known for its cleanliness.

    Looks like perfectly normal MP200 brass to me.

    I don't have a chrony yet.. But I couldn't find any damage on the cases or elsewhere on the firearm. Thanks for the replies.

    Shooting MP200 is almost like shooting with blackpowder... Lots of smoke and carbon. After my move to S121 I get a lot less black stuff up my nose.

    Try shooting MP200 behind lead bullets! Smokeless propellant se Moses!
