    Ok, Been a while since I loaded up for my 10mm. What I am dealing with is.
    165 gr rainier plated bullets
    Titegroup powder
    CCI magnum primers

    Yes, I know titegroup is a bit fast burning for a plated round. My notes are gone with my recipes. I have been looking and I am remembering it was a hassle to work these rounds up.

    I just want range ammo. About mid range power. My memory is saying 5.2 grains of titegroup. But, anyone know for sure?

    The problem that I face is. The rainier plated bullets need to be treated like lead.

    My brain keeps saying 5.2grains is what I used before.
    Looking at your numbers. It looks like I am in the right area to stay safe.
