    Can anyone offer reloading data using a 180 grain XTP and Unique? Looking for an easy shooting basic target/plinking load.

    Basic plinking loads can be assembled with 5.5 gr of Unique at about 940 fps...; 5.8 gr worth about 970fps, and I did a few with 6.1 gr at 1030 fps.... (OAL was 1.24")
