I posted a question recently regarding reloading .40's for a G23- was having problems with getting consistent velocities (super high SD and ES). Got a lot of feedback and advice. The most consistent advice was to go with a faster powder or boost the charge on the powders I was trying out. Well, I did go with a faster powder (went all the way up to 231), and low and behold IT WORKED! My jaw hit the floor when my chrono clocked SD of 4.4 and ES of 16!!!! So thanks for the advice- my load is now 5.0 gr. of 231 in Win Brass pushing Hornady 180 gr. HAP's with COAL of 1.125. I am getting a CONSISTENT PF of 168! Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
