1911 .40 s&w major load data


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Just got my hands on a Springfield 1911 Loaded in .40 s&w and looking for some load data. From what I understand these guns feed better with a longer overall length. I will probably use 10mm mags. I have some SnS casting 180 gr fp and some of their 200gr rn. What would be a good overall length and powder to start with?

Before bothering with the 10mm mags I'd check and see how long you can load with the bullet you are going to be using. The barrel chambering will dictate what maximum C.O.A.L you will be able to use.
