Those are some very good numbers DRT! I'm glad to see you post this, I loaded up some loads to run but the weather around here hasn't cooperated enough for me to get to run them. I will be using my G35 also, and have a 6' KKM barrel on it's way.

Included are some Longshot loads, mainly 165gr, as I'm feeling there may be some room to play with there. Hodgdon's 165gr Longshot data seems like an oddity, and the 165gr Sierra is kind of long compared to the 165gr Gold Dot. Anyways it should be interesting, plus I have some nice 3N38 loads waiting. I may load some 155gr XTP's over Longshot as well, I've got a newer batch of Longshot to play with, so it may be better than my last batch.

I mainly messed with Power Pistol last go around, but the book load of 7.2gr for 180gr did ~1150 from the G35. Not bad, but your Longshot load that did ~1220 fps has got me wanting to try out Longhsot again. 9gr of 3N38 got me ~1200 from the G35 with a 180gr with an extreme spread in the single digits.

Very solid performance, and with the 6" barrel my past experience is that 180gr can get close to 1300 fps, although it's not really necessary since ~1200 fps is plenty potent and as you said, takes full advantage of pretty much every 180gr JHP bullet known. With that kind of performance I decided I didn't need my 10mm anymore.
