I picked up some 40 caliber x-treme bullets at the last a gun show. now I can't find any load data for them. They are 165gr FPRN Fully plated bullets. I'm using HP-38 for powder any help would be appreciated!

Ps. I do know you use lead data, still can't find info.

4.1 for a light target round 4.5 for a 6 planker ( 6 x 1" planks penetration)

no crony yet these things are new to me here... only worked up some with 100 i got have 1000 ordered

dont start at less than 3.7 as you may get cycling issues

i did a ladder of 5 rounds each starting at 3.5 ( based on hodgsons book ) had issues until 3.7
4.7 i was compressing powder so stayed at 4.5

i dont load more due to space concerns and dont want the powder compressed by the deeper seated round

cheers

i got a heap here as ADI ( Australian Defense Industries ) use hodgson powders and i'm a agent so got samples galore and its a good target powder

i'd use a different powder for hunting but for low pressure low recoil its very good ( clean too ) and will still pump a whole mag through through 6 x1" planks at my max safe load , thats my kill equivalent test here
