    Which pistol powder are you using ?   Bullseye, 2400, ETC

    Alliant Powder - Technically Superior by Design   

    from their web site :  https://www.alliantpowder.com/products/handgun.aspx

    listing of current products :   Sport Pistol, smokeless powder   
                                              2400, smokeless magnum handgun
                                              BE-86, smokeless pistol
                                              Bullseye, smokeless pistol
                                              Power Pistol, smokeless pistol
                                              Power Pro 300-MP,  smokeless spherical magnum pistol powder
                                              Unique, smokeless

    If the OP is asking about Alliant pistol powder generally the web site or a reloading manual might be a good place to start.  If the OP is asking about an Alliant powder to buy, selecting one from the above list would be a good place to start.   If the OP is asking about an Alliant powder already in hand properly identifying it would be a good place to start - especially before attempting to load ammunition with it.

    I believe if I read the OP's original post correctly "Looking for a reasonable start data on  following.
    alliant pistol powder.pushing a 9mm, 115 gr rnl coated, wanting to push it at least 1200 fps "
    , he was asking if anyone who is using Alliant Pistol powder, in a 9MM has any recommended loading data they they could recommend. I'm sure he probably has loading manuals and since he got to this site, he knows how to use the Internet.

    I've reloaded and tested a bunch of coated Bayou 115 LRN using several powders including Power Pistol. Started at 5.8 grains of PP but accuracy wasn't very good. Accuracy improved as charge went up, with 6.5 grains of PP being one of my most accurate of all powders tested. 6.5 grains gave a velocity of  1149fps average out of my Shield(3.1" barrel), and 1237fps from my S120(4.7" barrel). Other best powders I use with this bullet are BE-86, CFE Pistol and Autocomp. Oh, and COAL I use is 1.110". Hope this answers your question.

    I use Unique and Bullseye for 9mm, for Reliant powders, but the rod style powder granules are harder to meter nicely through my UniFlow. Mah druthers are Accurate Arms #7 or #2.

    Before you work up a load at 1,200 for coated, have you checked with the bullet manufacturer to make sure it's rated for that speed? You're probably at the very top end for a coated round and will want to take it slow.

    I use Bullseye with a 124 gr coated (Bayou Bullets) and 4.2 gr gets me up close to 1,050 fps and I usually leave it at that. With a 115 gr out of a 5" barrel (you didn't say what you were shooting it out of), I'd start with a a load of 4.6 gr Bullseye, after you make sure 1,200 is the rated speed for your bullet, and work up from there .1 gr at a time. I wouldn't exceed 5.1.
