need load for 155 gr lead .40 s&w. after market barrel. w231 powder. G23.
The Lyman Reloading Handbook doesn't have a 155gr cast bullet listed, but they do list a 150gr and a 175gr.
150gr 1.090" OAL
Starting 5.5gr with max at 6.5gr
175gr 1.125" OAL
starting 4.3gr with max at 5.8gr
As always, start with the lower charged load and work your way up while checking for signs of over pressure
Hodgdon shows 5.1 to 6.0gr (1.125") using a plated bullet, which is what you would use for lead.
I think lee book has one. Pm phone and I will send as soon as I can.
I run Missouri bullets IDP#9 155gr LSWC in my G23
My load= 5.2gr of W231 and get 950fps.
Thanks for the help guys.
