Looks good to me. I would drop the 4.4gr for the 180 a little though, maybe 4.1-4.2 and work up from there.As the title states I'm completely new to handloading but am loving the learning. Just need some folks with experience to give me a warm fuzzy on my loadout.
I have .40 S&W Federal brass, Win231 powder, Berry's Plated bullets(flat nose/round shoulder) in 155gr on a Lee press with RCBS dies.
So far after much reading I have determined my initial 5-10 rounds should be:
5.1 grains of Win231
OAL of 1.125
Is this correct?
I also have some Berry's Plated Hollow points in 180gr..the Hodgdon site doesn't specify a load for these that I can see...they list 180gr but it says FP which I assume means Fully Plated...or does it mean something else? Would I be safe to use that load data of 4.4 grains in the plated hollow points?
I'm starting at the minimum loads to find out if they cycle my handguns correctly. These loads are for a Glock 27 and a SA XDm both in .40.
Thanks for reading and any insight..
FP stands for Flat Point.
