I have been reloading some LRN in 40 cal for my sig P226 and have really like them, but I am about to run out. I have been looking around and really like MBC for my 45 (P220) and my 41 mag bullets. My question is, going from a LRN to a SWC in a semi auto, how big is the learning curve. Does anyone have the usual horror stories about the switch and jams, etc..... Is it a non factor if all the usual precautions are taken. I am painstakingly slow when working up a load and making sure the machine is set up accordingly.

I've loaded a few MBC IDP #2 SWC, 170 gr. The bullets are are easy to work with, and I've had no feed issues so far in a Glock 22.
4.0gr Bullseye, OAL 1.120"

I've never had any issues with 155gr SWC in my 40. They feed and function well.

I use the following OALs in G22/G27/Lone Wolf barrels and they feed/chamber reliably.
