Disclaimer: I realize I’m probably overthinking the hell out of this and trying to fiddle too much. I used to shoot IDPA pretty heavily and got out of it for a few years. I’ve recently gotten back into it, and hope to start hitting major matches again next year (hopefully Nationals too). I also bought my first IDPA revolver, a S&W 625JM 4”. That’s what I plan on competing with for the next year. I’m trying to develop a load for it. I ordered 2k plated 230gr bullets from Xtreme (mix of RN and JHP). I’ve read forums on what powders other use, and I can’t seem to get a consensus (surprise, surprise). I’ve read a ton on manufacturer’s websites and am having trouble narrowing it down. Instead of asking, “What should I use and why?”, I’m going to approach it from a different angle. I’m going to list the powders I’ve identified as potential, and I want to know “Why NOT?” In other words, why not use ____ powder? The parameters are that this will be almost exclusively shot out of a 625JM, almost exclusively with plated 230gr projectiles (at least for now), and almost exclusively for IDPA competition/practice, so a power factor of 155. Which means I need at least 674fps out of it, but not much more. Thank you in advance!
