Ammo for PPK/S Interarms

I just bought the ss ppk/s and want to start reloading. I want a source for loads and bullet weights, particularly for a 100 grain FMJ since i just bought a 1000 of them yesterday.

You will have to see what runs well in your pistol. Are the bullets actually FMJ or are they plated? Plated is less expensive, but sometimes won't tolerate being driven as hard.
Suggest you start with Bullseye; it is cheap @ round, meters well, and is generally available.
I'd start at 2.5 grains (774 fps in an LCP) and work up to 3.0 grains (848 fps in a G42). Ordinary WWB ball does 843 fps in an LCP, and a bit more in longer barrels, so the 3.0 is fairly close to that. Try an overall length of 0.940", but your will find some variation, depending on the shape of the bullet nose.
Look for reliable ejection, but too much slide velocity is not your friend.
Sorry I don't have data in my PPK/s, and, full disclosure, these loads were developed with other guns in mind. They just happen to run in my Walther.
ETA- A tip from our late rangemaster; he always put magic marker across the case heads of his .380 reloads, so that when he policed his spent brass, he didn't get casings mixed with the 9mm empties. Getting them confused is a bad thing when running them thru' the press.
