    I've loaded some with Power Pistol, got a few hundred real cheap here on the forum classified. I used the Alliant recommended data 5.0 at 1.13 OAL. Work good and was equivalent to the 147 HST's I carry recoil wise, however muzzle flash was much brighter. I think they push around 975 Fps.

    I got in on the same deal. Think I'm going to try 4.1 WSF on OAL of 1.13.

    i ordered mine on saturday and recieved them today, They look great. i had been wanting them for a while but when they offered the brass free i said...ah what the heck. i like free stuff, even if i dont really need it.

    After a little more searching through some other reloading manuals i decided to load up 10 with 3.8gr of unique with col of 1.13 to start. these big bullets really give the brass an hourglass figure.

    Wow, that's a heck of a deal! I wish I had seen it, I would have ordered it too for that price.

    What gun and what fps are you getting?

    I have some of the same bullets, and powders, going to work up a load myself and curious as to what you're seeing.

    i took the 3.8gr of unique @ 1.130 load to the range and gave them a try today. they cycled my g26 fine and were accurate but seemed very mild.

    unfortunately i have no way of telling the Velocity of these loads.

    i may bump it up closer 4gr and see what that does for me. the alliant site says 4.3 is max.
