Re: New to Reloading and Confused...
good advice posted above.. Ill just reinforce that you can use any data for any 180 gr projectile. just start at your starting charge and work up. W231/HP38 is an excellent powder in the .40
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
