Brass/Primers all look good, and brass drops within 4ft of my position. I'm going to stick with the 12.2gr load for the 90gr XTP from now on. Now it's time to get to work on the 115gr XTP's.

I also tested some more Blue Dot/90gr XTP loads, this time with CCI350's, and again, a little more crimp. I just wanted try the mag primers out. The sound and flash from these rounds are amazing. The 14.8gr load is my new "wake up the indoor range" round. 14.5gr with CCI300's works for that too.

Brass/Primers all still look good, but I'm happy with what I have done so far, so I don't see a need to go any further with Blue Dot and the 90gr XTP.
Meathead,

Thanks for the most excellent data! Should be getting my Longshot powder Thursday. 12.2 grains of Longshot, AVE 2049 with an ES of 23 is amazing. Now, if the weather will cool down here... I'll try to repeat.

Where did you get your longslide for your G20? I see Lonewolf has 'em.
