I have 2000 180 grain lead semi-wad cutters and would like to load them in 10mm and 40 cal. but the lyman catalog I have only lists 175 grain lswc. Is it safe to use 175 grain data with 180 grain bullets if minimum charges are used? I currently use bullseye, WFS, and Win 231 when reloading.

You might want to do a search for the reloading pages of M.D.Smith. It may be of help to you. good luck.

if you start at the low end and work up you shouldn't have a problem. just don't load a lot of the load until you find out that they are safe. start out with maybe 10 rounds. if in doubt always start on the low end

Hodgdon lists loads for 200 grain for both WSF and 231. http://data.hodgdon.com/cartridge_load.asp

So your saying it is safe to use 200 grain data with a 180 grain bullet?
