I was able to get out today with some CFE loads I made up for testing. Made 20 of each charge, but some did not register on the chrono. There were strong wind gusts that may have moved the chrono a little bit and not pick up a shot here and there.

CFE Pistol

180gr Xtreme RNFP

1.180" OAL

Tula Small Pistol Primers

Assorted Brass

Ambient temp was about 50F in the sun.

CFE 5.7gr - 948 942 964 958 973 942 966 998 948 924 959 974 964 965 934 940 957 967 929

CFE 5.8gr - 992 962 1010 992 1009 978 977 968 979 1000 968 981 987 1019 958 976 994 986 1009 970

CFE 5.9gr - 988 1001 1002 987 1012 1055 1023 1010 1036 1019 1010 1010 1001 1011 985 999 986 1000 1002 951

CFE 6.0gr - 1010 1034 1020 1006 1013 1015 1013 1005 1021 1017 1021 1017 995 1013 1013 1003 1011 1010 1008 977

The 5.7gr charge was VERY soft for a major PF. The numbers get better from a standard deviation standpoint as we get into the 5.9-6.0gr charges, but they were smokey, even with plated bullets. The 5.7gr load cycled my Edge just fine with a 12# recoil spring.

I can't comment on how clean it was because I did not have a cleaning kit with me and I proceeded to do a practice session with 400 rounds of my WST load.

Pretty decent accuracy for my Edge at 7yds (where I put the target for chrono).

I am going to load up more at 5.7gr and try them at speed for a match.
