Did my firstreloads last night (30 rounds). Loading 165grain .40 S&W. However, I cannotget a consistent powder drop. I am using Hodgdon HP-38 powder. Like I said,this was my first reloads. HP-38 is the only powder I have. HP-38 is alsoclearly listed in my Lee reloading manual. I am following the manual it is recommended to use the .43 disk opening. Butthat through way too much power. All the loads with the .43 were near, or overthe recommended max load. So, I changed to the .40 disk opening. But it is droppingjust below the starting powder load. WTF! I don't want to load powder my hand. And I cannot change to a totallydifferent brand of equipment. I am just starting out. What can I do to get a consistent powder charge with the above gear??? Should I fire the 30 rounds I already made??? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
