Fuzly Posted January 2, 2007 Share Posted January 2, 2007 Hi all, I am new to IDPA but wish I would have went to a match several years ago. It is a lot of fun. I am classifed in SSP but I have a very nice older S&W 686 I would like to try at a match. This gun is loaded with a quality 110 or 125 JHP load when at home. I would like to try a handload with a 125 grain bullet around 1100 fps to get something close to my home defense load without beating me up. Is this reasonable? Does anybody else ever shoot a match with something close to his/her defense load? Or should I think of an IDPA match as something different? It sounds like 158 grain .38 +P is what most use in this division; round nose to facilitate easier speedloading. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
