I am trying to consolidate the bullets I shoot in 40 S&W and 10mm. I have been using 12 gr of Blue Dot with a 155 gr XTP and like them but am going to start buying 165 gr Winchester FP as they are the best deal I can find right now. I can't seem to find any load data for them though. Any help would be appreciated.

The Lyman 48th Edition Reloading Handbook has loads for 165 grain jacketed bullets using 11 powders, including Blue Dot. You might consider adding it to your loading library.

Hope this helps.

Awesome! Thanks for the suggestion. That is one manual I don't have but just might have to add to the collection.

I have run a lot of 10mm loads with Blue Dot. With the 165grn FMJ, I use between 11 and 11.9 grains. Blue Dot is somewhat temp sensitive as well so be aware of this. In 90F weather, the 11.9 load was clocking 1280 out of a 4.6" barrel. Nice flash and boom.

Work up slowly, and be safe.
