Glock 35 with KKM barrel, 5.3" Makes 135PF. This load is a very very soft shooter, perfect for IDPA. No signs of case over pressure as this load is a good ways under Alliants listed MAX load. Nice and clean too.

I use Rainier copper plated bulliets and found that I had no problems with cycling the action on my Glock 23. Recoil was very mild and accuracy was excellent. These loads should still make a power factor of about 130.
