    I have two Glock 35's that I set up for USPSA Production Division. I shoot
    Zero 200 gr jacketed bullets at around 660 fps which gives me a Power
    Factor of 132. I need only to make a 125 PF, so 132 gives me a little
    cushion. But, when I reload I keep track of how my powder is flowing and
    make sure that it's doing what it's suppose to.

    I've used my G35 Gen 4 in Production with 180 grain bullets, power factor right at 132-133. Then I realized I didn't like figuring out where to reload mags all the time so I switched to Limited. That being said, for handloaders a G35 is very versatile in USPSA and can easily shoot major or minor power factor.

    For now I'm shooting the G35 Gen 3. Have not tried the Gen 4. The PF of 132 is safe and gives you a small amount of recoil. I shoot the Zero 200 gr jacketed bullets for now, but plan on switching to SNS Casting Coated bullets in 200 gr. I tried shooting Limited with G35, but just a
    bit too much recoil for my injured shooting shoulder (torn Rotator Cuff). I also agree that the G35 is easily shot in Limited and Production with just a Recoil Spring change and different ammo
    of course. You said a lot in small amount of words.....................Ron

    I shot GLOCK 35s in USPSA production for a few years. Shoots softer than my 34 at 130 PF in my opinion.

    The only rule for Production is to load when you move.....

    Sorry about the double quote, my computer is running a little slow and I'm running a little fast.
    I shoot Zero 200 gr jacketed bullets with 3.3 grains of VV N320. It runs around 650 fps, only
    need to make 625 fps to make Minor Caliber in USPSA. It shoots flat and soft. Never shot anything lighter than the 200's. They have a little more push in the hand, but less Muzzle Flip.
    I use Wolff 12# open end recoil spring with a Lightning Strike Stainless Steel guide rod and a
    Carver Custom Brass Butt Plug (weighs about 3 ounces). In Production you can go 4 ounces over factory weight and still be legal. Factory weight for G35 (in USPSA) is 27.6 ounces, so I can go
    31.6 ounces. At my last match my G35 weighed 30.3 ounces. So I need to find more weight.
    Thanks for the info on your load......................
