    We bought some bullets from a reloading store in Dallas and they're not in my Lymans or anywhere. They are Frontier Metal Processing, RNFP 165 gr full metal jacket. We're using Clays powder and they don't list this bullet either. Is the recipe for a 165 gr FP bullet the same? We went to the website for the bullets and they don't have anything but a question and answer section.
    Thanks in advance for any insight.

    You will not find data for every bullet manuf/powder combo. You can use data for sim. bullet styles/shapes/wts & work up. You canalways use heavier bullet data for lighter bullets. AS s to Clays for newbs in the 40, I would suggest a slightly slower powder. Clays is very unforgiving in high pressure rounds like the 40.
