Whenever I see anyone talking about the .40 S&W, it usually centers around something like a 180 gr JHP. So I bought a couple of thousand Zero bullets and I'm ready to make my first attempt at loading .40 some time in the next month or so. I'll be using WSF and either Tula or Federal SP primers in once-fired Federal cases. However, at some point I would like to load some lead bullets strictly for cost. No matter how cheap I get JHP, lead is about half as much. Any recommendations for lead bullets? These will be shot in Sig P229s. Missouri Bullet makes some as does S&S Casting. My question is more related to bullet weight and profile rather than availability. Any place to get load data? I looked briefly in Hornady, Speer and Lyman and didn't find anything for lead. I did find some loads at HandLoads.com but nothing at Hodgdon or Alliant. Lead bullets are made in .40 S&W so somebody must be using them. I'd like to join in... Richard Wanna kill these ads?
