FGW Limited Pistol on it's way

Recommended Posts

A couple months ago I ordered this pistol from Freedom Gunworks to get back into Limited Major.  I kept the build pretty close to my IDPA pistol to make it easier to transition between the two sports.  I should have it in my hands on Friday.  If it looks as good in person and it does in the photo, I'm gonna be very happy with it.

Well, my transition to non-SV pistols continues to expand my reloading knowledge/experience.  While my long time SV load of a 180 grain Zero TMJ, over 5.4 grains of N320 to 1.20" will shoot, it's too long.  I had already loaded up a copy of AAA .40 long which was the same bullet, over 5.0 grains of N320 to 1.180.  That too was a little long and even though it would pass the Dillon case gauge, I need to add a little bit of crimp to pass the plunk test.  So for the FGW Limited gun the magic numbers appear to be 1.170" with a .419" crimp.

180 gr Zero bullets at 1.170 - 1.180 OAL     .420 - .421 crimp.   whatever powder you use      use the barrel chamber for your gauge, nothing else.

Send out the barrel to Beven Grams to ream them for longer ammo

Why did you go to a non SV? Great looking FGW
