Thanks for the data Doug, and your time on the phone.

I just loaded a batch of 125gr .40 S&W, will report back asap.

I wonder how such light bullets perform :ponder: Any idea what kind of velocity/ ft/lbs those babies are getting?

Very good accuracy, light bark and minimal recoil... but I have no chrono.

I'll look into that, and it'll be decent enough here to shoot outside for a change soon.

Done deal.



Like I told Ryan...as I'm learning to load I want each and every round to load, go bang and reload.....I'll work on velocities later. :thumb:

I tested about 5 different bullets and 8 loads, .40 and 10mm....some were a smashing success, 3 of them were dissappointments.

seems a little on the slow side for a 125gr bullet, no? I wonder if that couldnt be improved upon....perhaps w/ some Longshot or something (I highly doubt you could fit enough N105 in there).

Thank you Doug, I received the SFR40-105RHVF today.
I forgot they were coming.
I s'pose you saw that I temporarily cleared my bench. :wall:

Well, there's another incentive to kick out the leather projects and set the loading gear back up. :D

I need a proper shop space.

You know you got past lazy way back when you keep a set of 10 mm dies and another for 40 Sw just so you don't need to fuss each time. A local 30 man dept shoots all 40, qualifies 3 times a year, and was just dumping the brass. They gave it to me for free and while I really have no respect for the 40 I just sit in front of the ballgame nightly crankin it out, one round at a time. I still have a few hundred rounds of 10mm I loaded in the 80's! It just seems to pile up over time Guess that's a good problem to have.
