  1. Hey Guys, I have a new-to-me Brazos STI Edge 2011 that appears to like long 40 S&W ammo. I bought some truncated cone ammo and it choked a couple times per mag. I did not see any pics and/or measurements of factory 40 S&W ammo online...Long loaded 40 S&W appears to be around 1.175 OAL Feel free to add your OAL and/or pics
  2. I have a new Tanfoglio Limited custom in 40 S&W that I purchased several months ago. I have shot it very little but have been having problems with it from the start. I Have tried a few factory brands with it as well as my hand-loads. It seems to function best with one of my hand-loads which is a little on the warm side with a hollow point bullet. I also occasionally get a stove pipe. but that may just be with a weaker hand load. It has the original recoil spring in it that came from the factory. Also, when racking the slide it is stiff and gritty. Where do I start to try to fix the problem? I have watched Memphis Mechanics videos but don't have the time to do all that work myself right now.
  3. 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 question still remains. Second is powder, currently I have a few selections but really like the way titegroup burns in my 9mm and see there are a lot of people that use it in their 40's as well. so, looking for a proven load to make around 170PF. I am going to start about 4.5gr and chrono that to see what i get. Third is OAL, I like to run my reloads as long as is permitted by the gun. Any lengths that the M&P 40Pro doesn't like? I am thinking of starting at 1.150 and move out from there. I see several using 1.170 but not sure what the M&P 40 magazine will handle as I haven't received the gun from the FFL. Thanks in advance for any information.
  4. Hello All, I purchased a LW 40 SW to 9mm conversion barrel for a new G35. Went to the rage today and three different types of 9mm ammo would not fully chamber. The slide would not go into battery and considerable force had to be used to eject the round. The ammo used was Hornandy Critical Defense, Remmington 147gr FMJ, and my own loads. I had my G17 (with factory barrel) with me and all ammo chambered and functioned flawlessly. Has anyone experienced this problem? I chatted with LW and they want me to return the barrel but will take between 2-4 weeks to process the return. Is it just me or does that seem like an excessive amount of time to process a return?
