  1. I've been comparing Alliant Sport Pistol to the N320 load I normally use and I think I'm going to switch to SP! I set some aside for chronographing - it's just too hot outside for my usual testing. Bullet: Precision Delta 115 gr. JHP Powder: VihtaVuori N320 5.4 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Starline .38 Super +P (Sized with Lee U-Die) LOAL: 1.245 (0.965 with Stoney Point) Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 12 lb. Recoil Spring and Buffer Pad. Bullet: Hornady 115 gr. FMJ-RN Powder: Alliant Sport Pistol 5.0 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Starline .38 Super +P (Sized with Lee U-Die) LOAL: 1.245 (0.946 with Stoney Point) Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 12 lb. Recoil Spring and Buffer Pad.
  2. I gave Sport Pistol a try today in my Edge. It's just my opinion but it I think it shoots softer and cooler than Titegroup with slightly less soot on the gun. Very accurate at 25 yards too. Can't wait to try it with some FMJs. I was really surprised how much softer my 40 S&W Edge felt compared to my .38 Super Edge. I was shooting SIG .38 Super 125 gr FMJ factory loads in the Super with a 12 lb. recoil spring and Wilson Shok Buf. Bullet: BBI 180 gr. FP Powder: Alliant Sport Pistol 4.7 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Small Pistol Case: Remington (Regular Lee Die) LOAL: 1.180 Recoil Spring: Tool-less guide rod, 14 lb. Recoil Spring & Aluma Buffer Pad
  3. Here are a few loads that worked really well in my old Glock 17L with a Lone Wolf Barrel - it's got a long throat too. Bullet: Precision Delta 147 gr. FMJ-RN Powder: Winchester WSF 4.2 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.150 Average Velocity: 955.08 fps ES: 29.22 SD: 9.53 ************************* Bullet: Bullet Works 147 gr. Plated RN Powder: Alliant Power Pistol 4.3 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.145 Average Velocity: 916.41 fps ES: 30.58 SD: 10.04 ************************* Bullet: Bullet Works 147 gr. Plated RN Powder: VihtaVuori N320 3.7 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.145 Average Velocity: 943.93 fps ES: 28.97 SD: 10.34 From a Springfield Armory XDm 5.25 with factory barrel. Bullet: Precision Delta 147 gr. FMJ-RN Powder: VihtaVuori N320 3.6 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.150 Average Velocity: 988.81 fps ES: 17.97 SD: 5.74
  4. From a factory XDm 5.25 barrel... Bullet: Precision Delta 124 gr. JHP Powder: VihtaVuori N320 3.7 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.115 Average Velocity: 1042.54 fps
  5. I only shoot minor loads in my .38 Super Edge but here's a favorite. Bullet: 125 gr. Blue Bullet Coated RN (.3555) Powder: Hodgdon Titegroup 4.4 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: PMC .38 Super +P LOAL: 1.250 Recoil Spring: STI Light Recoil Master Average Velocity: 1068.42 fps ES: 30.36 SD: 9.05 PF: 133
  6. I've still got a lot of 4756 and N105 to go thru but HS-6 works fine. Here's a load I developed for my STI Trubor using regular .38 Super brass. Your 7.4-8.4 gr range should work fine with 38 Super Comp brass. Bullet: Montana Gold 124 gr. JHP Powder: Hodgdon HS-6 8.85 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Rifle Case: Starline 38 Super +P LOAL: 1.240 (.976 with Stoney Point) Avg. Vel.: 1409.57 fps ES: 25.92 SD: 7.41 PF: 174 Recoil Spring: 8 lbs. with Dawson Aluma Buffer Pad
  7. I don't do anything special for this load. I've only chronographed it with small pistol primers and it just made 165 PF, using large pistol primers should bring up the velocity a little. Bullet: Blue Bullets 230 gr. RNFP (Polymer Coated/.452) Powder: VihtaVuori N310 3.8 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Mixed Blazer & Federal LOAL: 1.250 Recoil Spring: Factory (16 lbs.) No Buffer Pad Velocity: 721.87 fps ES: 42.16 SD: 14.21 Here's a load with Titegroup which I haven't had a chance to chrongraph. I used 4.6 grs. of Titegroup too - but it was a little snappier. Bullet: Blue Bullets 230 gr. RNFP (Polymer Coated/.452) Powder: Hodgdon Titegroup 4.3 grs. Primer: Winchester Large Pistol Case: Winchester & Remington .45 ACP LOAL: 1.250 Recoil Spring: Factory (16 lbs.) No Buffer Pad
  8. Just a couple of factory guns with VZ Grips...
  9. Well... to get the ball rolling! Can't help you with Titegroup and I don't know what gun you are using (revolver or 1911) or what caliber but here's one that makes major and then some! Gun: S&W Performance Center 625-8 (4-inch bbl.) Bullet: Blue Bullets 250 gr. RNFP (Polymer Coated/.4515) Powder: Alliant Power Pistol 5.7 grs Primer: Federal 150 Case: Starline 45 Auto Rim LOAL: 1.200 Average Velocity: 714.13 fps ES: 11.94 SD: 5.09 Should work just fine in a 1911 with .45 ACP brass!
  10. I could have sworn I'd tried 200 gr. coated bullets in my Edge but I was wrong. I fine tuned my previous load and tried a lower charge of Titegroup. Here are the results - not a coated bullet but it's something! Bullet: X-Treme 200 gr. RNFP Plated Powder: Hodgdon Titegroup 4.0 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Remington LOAL: 1.180 Avg. Vel.: 839.21 fps ES: 35.24 SD: 11.61 PF: 167 Recoil Spring: Tool-less guide rod, 14 lb. Recoil Spring & Aluma Buffer Pad
  11. Using a Lone Wolf Barrel in my Glock 17L... Bullet: Bullet Works 147 gr. Plated RN Powder: VihtaVuori N320 3.7 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.145 Average Velocity: 943.93 fps ES: 28.97 SD: 10.34 Comments: ISMI 13 lbs. recoil spring and Jager Polymer Guide Rod
  12. If the bulge bothers you give Federal or Blazer brass a try. Both have less internal taper than other brands. I use a regular Lee Sizer Die with lead bullets too...
  13. The factory barrel on my XDm9 5.25 had a fairly short throat but this load still work great! I used a 14 lb. recoil spring since it's a pretty light load - no problems with muzzle flash either. Bullet: Precision Delta 147 gr. FMJ-RN Powder: Alliant Power Pistol 4.3 grs. Primer: Federal 100 Case: Federal LOAL: 1.150
  14. I shoot either Rainiers or Bullet Works 180 gr. plated FNs in my STI Edge, whichever is cheaper/available. The X-Treme version is good too but the nose is a little blunt so I reserve them for my Glocks. That said, I've never had a malfunction with any of them.
  15. You did ask for plated loads so... Gun: 5 inch STI Edge Bullet: Bullet Works 180 gr. RNFP Plated Powder: Winchester WST 4.3 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Federal LOAL: 1.180 Avg. Vel.: 837.86 fps ES: 47.10 SD: 16.24 PF: 150 Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 12 lb. Recoil Spring and Buffer Pad Bullet: Bullet Works 180 gr. RNFP Plated Powder: Winchester WST 4.5 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Federal LOAL: 1.180 Avg. Vel.: 888.42 fps ES: 36.76 SD: 12.96 PF: 159 Recoil Spring: Dawson tool-less guide rod, 12 lb. Recoil Spring and Buffer Pad Comments: 159 PF Bullet: Bullet Works 180 gr. RNFP Plated Powder: Winchester WST 5.0 grs. Primer: Winchester Small Pistol Case: Winchester LOAL: 1.200 Avg. Vel.: 959.61 fps ES: 42.27 SD: 13.89 PF: 172 Recoil Spring: Tool-less guide rod, 14 lb. Recoil Spring & Aluma Buffer Pad
