I spent a few hours looking for basic information for reloading .40 and my head and eyes are spinning. I used to load .357 with my single stage Lyman 3 piece set about 30 years ago and I used a simple recipe. Now, I have all that stuff yet but I'd like to reload .40
I saw sintered bullets. Since bullets are scarce, are they safe for my Glock?
I have quality factory ammo set aside for defense. I just want to go to the range and shoot at targets.
Can anyone point me to a simple recipe? Recommend a bullet, a power name and charge, and primer. That's all I want. Target shooting at 25 yards only.
Recommend looking at any of the many producers of Hi-Tek coated cast bullet suppliers. 180 grains is standard, and they run very well in my Glocks.
4.5 grains of Accurate No. 2 is what I'm currently burning through at about 900 fps with a coated cast bullet. Whatever primer. 1.125". Please double-check the load Accurate online manual since I'm prone to typos.
If you want a slower velocity, try WST.
