40 minor load for stock 2?


Recommended Posts

From my chrono notes last year out of a 5" barrel.

 

180 gr xtreme over 3.82 of HP38 at 1.13" = 132 power factor

180 gr xtreme over 3.76 of HP38 at 1.13" = 129 power factor

 

I should chrono my Stock II to be sure, but even without doing that I'm sure a 4.75" barrel length will still be within reason and comfortably above the 125 pf floor.  Shooting the Stock 2 in 40 minor is great!  Think medium velocity bunny farts :)

No, 9 is cheaper o shoot. I shoot a 40 because that was the only stock 2 available when they were a unicorn 3 years ago.

I know a few guys who run 40 minor. You can make power factor with a very soft load and I have seen a few times where the difference between 9 and 40 made the difference between A and C hits. But they also seem a little more finicky about springs and maintenance.

If it was an advantage I think you would see the super squad types do it and I don't remember ever seeing that.
