I wish I had tried a tough 155 sooner.


I fired some handloaded 155 grain Noslers at 1150 through my G20SF. They were very smooth in that gun.

I want to get a 40 barrel for my 20SF at some point. I bet the recoil is very light, and that sounds true based on your post.

The recoil sure is light. The 20SF grip and that heavy slide make them a pleasure to shoot. Mine were light loaded 10mm rounds by the way. Same difference.

I take it that the G20 extractor works for .40S&W.

You are right. I've settled on the 180 HST. There is quite a difference in recoil and the 180 HST performs very well. It's also easy to find.

I believe so. Like I said mine were .40 power level 10mm rounds.

Do any ammo makers offer full-power 10mm loads?

Hornady's 155 and 180 grain loads are medium hot. Their 200 grain load is akin to .45 ACP +P ballistics. I believe Underwood and Buffalo Bore are two that load 10mm in full power, along with a few other boutique ammo companies.

Good, The round is too good to underload.
