  1. I have a Super 1050 that I want to convert from .40s&w to 9mm... and most likely back again once in a while... so I'd like to make it as quick to change between .40 and 9mm as possible. It seems like the best way to go is with the Dillon Quick-Change toolhead conversion and the Dillon 9mm Parabellum caliber conversion kit... They both use the same size primers, so that should be good to go... anything else I'm missing?
  2. Hey everyone. I've been experimenting with lighter bullets in .40 trying to make major. My latest test was with some Montana Gold 155 grain FMJs I picked up off the prize table at Battle In the Bluegrass this year. I'm experimenting to see whether I like lighter or heavier bullets better. I've shot plenty of 180s and 200s and I'm currently using 200's at matches, but noticing that the recoil feels slow. When I started using them I had been shooting Single Stack running 230gr bullets in .45 so it felt similar. I'm sharing so my tests can be of some use to others who might be searching f
  3. I was going to post this on the OAL thread, but I'm not sure it's an OAL problem... so probably better to start a thread. Here's my story. I have a preloved, low round count, 2015 build SVI with an AET barrel in .40. This is my first time to reload for .40 and have not had any issues with reloading 1000's of rounds in 9 or .45 in the past. I know the AET's have tight chambers, so jacketed .400 bullets are recommended per the builder. I had some .401 bayou 180s on hand and loaded some of those up first to test. A large percentage of those failed the plunk test. Even the ones that dropped
  4. I guess this would be two questions in the same topic but.. I recently (accidentally) ordered 165gr. bayous. Should I return it for my normal 180gr or keep it and try it out. I shoot minor and major .40 with 180gr currently. Any pros/ cons for using 165? Second question.. How do I move my powder measure to station 3 on my Dillon 650 since the rod doesn't easily move? I want to run the Dillon sizer in station 1 and the EGW U die in station 2. Is it do-able without too much modification? Powders: N320, E3, Clays. Pistol: Limited DVC 5" Primers :CCI Mixed Range Brass
  5. Just getting a M&P 40 pro to use in limited. I do my own loading and up to this point have not loaded any 40cal so i am looking for a little help from some proven reloads. First bullet weight. I see a bunch of back and forth between the 180r and the 200r. Coming from 9mm I prefer the heavy 147 over all others. So, is the recoil effect from the heavier bullets the same in 40 as it is in 9mm? I am guessing that it is and I would like to try the 200gr FP Bayou bullet out but hate to buy things that don't work. Update...I have purchased the 200r so I will build a load on that, but the questi
  6. So I have been itching to get into uspsa limited and am getting things in order for a new xdm 5.25 in 40. I am completely new to loading 40 but have lots of experience in loading 9mm and 45. Because of my previous loading experience I have piles of bullseye and tightgroup in my stockpile. I know these are not the best powders for 40 but do any other fellow xdm 40 owners have any loads or suggestions for me besides find some new powders. I plan to use bayou or and casting 180 grain projectiles on my square deal b.
  7. Im looking into getting a conversion barrel for my glock 23 40cal and converting it to a 9mm So far i know of these makers Lone wolf and storm lake which one would you guys get?
  8. I was wondering what the difference is between hornady xtp vs the jacketed hollow point? Should I load them the same?
