    I recently ran out of Hogdon Universal and bought a bottle of Accurate No.5 to try in my 40S&W loads. I am using 165 grain Rainier FN plated bullets and haven't found a load recommendation for that bullet & powder. Anybody have good experience with a specific number of grains of No.5 powder with that bullet? I don't have a chrony yet or I would set up at a range and test some loads to find the optimum. I'm hoping someone has had some experience they would be willing to share...would be most grateful for it.

    Throw the Accurate No.5 away! Accurate No.5 and glock 40 do not like each other. Use some WSF or WST, or PP or even some WIN 231.
