    I just got in 3800 once fired .40 brass and was running it through the press, about 1 K into it (it's gonna take a while on the ol' rock chucker) I needed a break.

    So I ran by the range just long enough to throw a few mags through the G22 and thought I'd take a pic of my target (15 rnds @ 35feet) and my small .40 family. Also some of the Barry's 165gr plated I loaded up yesturday.

    You have a beautiful family.

    And they shouldn't go hungry with all that brass you have to reload...

    The target pictured was with 155gr hbrn Barry's plated and I just loaded them as plinking rounds so I picked 5.2gr bullseye and loaded about 200 up. All my .40's seem to like the 155gr hbrn. They didn't seem to like the 165 gr quite as well, and i found the plating to be more fragile when loading.

    155gr is the choice bullet weight out of my G22-- love the Hornaday 155gr FMJ TAP or XTP-- shoots like a dream. 1.4-1.7" groups for me, which I can't seem to do with 165gr or 180gr loads.
