    Bullet - 10mm 180gr hp/xtp
    Powder - HP-38, wsf, tghtgroup
    Primer - Federal 200 small pistol magnum (all I could find)

    How much powder should I use? I have some of all above.

    Mark, please do not be offended, but if one is reloading, one should have a current manual for the calibres involved. This will usually list several loads (from 'target' to 'max-do not exceed') along with the barrel length and rate of twist for the loads involved, all important items when working up a load for a particular pistol. (Doesn't the 10mm use a Large Pistol Primer?)

    I reload 10mm and I would not use any other primer but lg pistol. I would sell your other on ********* and use the proceeds to buy lg pistol.

    You do need a manual or guide of some sort. I have a hornady guide, lists from lee (it came with the press), and one from load books that has everyone info.

    Good luck
