    Anyone have any experience/loads for 165gr FMJ bullet with Titegroup? I have other powders but interested in the TG. Thanks

    IMO, TG is is about the worst powder one can use in the 40 S&W. It is super fast, burns very hot, has a very narrow safety window and has blown up more pistols than any other powder. Pick something a bit slower that will keep both you and your pistol in tact.

    You state titegroup only. Ok I'll break the rules and suggest the following:

    Berry's 180 grain Flat Point or Hollow Point plated bullet.
    SP Primer
    Universal @ 5.0 grains
    COAL @ 1.125

    I think 5.8 Universal was max load, Hodgden has the exact number, look it up to be sure. I liked the minimum load myself, less recoil and little velocity loss. I shoot it out of a Glock 23.

    Expect about 1000 fps
