Hello im new to reloading. I was wondering if you can use AA#2 with xtreme 155gr plated fn and win wsp primers? The load data from the lee die set says I can use AA2 at 5.6gr starting but my hornady and lyman manuals have no data on it. ill be useing a xd .40 and a HK p30 .40 .

Here is the data from the powder manufacturer. Since you are using a plated bullet instead of jacketed you should start on the low side of this and work up the load as you would any

other. Do you have a chronograph yet?

Barrel: 4" ■ Twist: 1-16" ■ Primer: WIN WSP ■ Bulle
