    Anyone have data for pd and titegroup, bullseye,or power pistol powder? 165-200 grain. I'm just about out of my 180 gr. Montana gold's. 4.3 grain tg, wsp primers seemed to be what I like in a glock 35. I'll probably order some power pistol or universal powder when the titegroup is gone.

    This is my pet IDPA load for the 40. 180's 3.5g TG at 1.125. Just remember tight group is for low velocity loads. Keep it light and it will serve you well.

    3.5 gr. Tg? I'll load up a few and try it. Thanks. The most I load for 40 is 4.3.

    I've used a bunch of PP with PD180 FMJ (and other bullet weights). Works great with a variety of low to moderate powder charge weights. You might find the following an interesting online read on loading the 40:

    Jacketed bullets are jacketed bullets and jacketed load data for a JHP can be used, except for the COL, for FMJ.
