posting Titegroup reload data for .40 S&W

Recommended Posts

RH45   

Loaded some .40 S&W Minor ammo using Titegroup, chrono'ed it, and did some analyses. Figured I'd share it here in case folks would find it helpful.

Info is in attached PDF file.

Cheers.

Those velocities seem pretty high. How short are you loading to?? :surprise:

Mr Loin:

Your results almost mirror mine that were fired from anSTI Trojan.

3.3gr/TG gave me a PF of 137800 vs your 133900.

I did a 3.6gr/TG and got a PF of 149000.

Hi RePete,

Good to hear we're in the same range.

What bullets do you use? I assume you're using 180 gr bullets?

Cheers.

My bad, 180 Frontier CMJ loaded to 1.115"

I figured they had to be shorter than mine. I load to 1.2".

How much lower PF are you getting by going to 1.2" compared to my PF numbers?

I'm keen to find out how much OAL affects PF.

My IDPA load for my STIs is 3.7 grains of Titegroup, behind a Zero, 180 grain, jhp, with OAL of about 1.2".

PF hovers around 135. I don't remember exactly, but, I remember that one of my Trojans is a little slower than the other one, and my Eagle.
