Hodgdon’s ’Longshot’ Powder START with 8.5 work UP and WATCH for pressure signs. This load is from Hodgdon’s 2004 manual. They suggest using Hornady’s XTP-JHP. I have used Remy’s 155 JHP and also Winchester’s 155 Silvertip JHP with great results. use caution if you intend to use different bullets, reduce loads and then work up watching for pressure signs. Also you can expect fragmentation. most these bullets are designed for less than 1200fps. noted fair accuracy. moderate orange flash, and large blast/report...not quite as much as the 135gr I submitted though!! However the Power Factor of this load is 205 vs the 135’s of 199, both will let you know the guns gone off!!! (vel 4" BBL) WARNING! use only with guns that FULLY support the cartridge in the chamber!!

LSWC 4.3 grTitegroup Unknown Win SP guest
I saw a Titegroup load of 4.5 gr from Bouncemail on this website. My Lee Turret would only drop 4.3 gr and I tried that and liked it. It works fine for IDPA and just target shooting.
