CAUTION: The following post includes loading data beyond currently published maximums for this cartridge. (Or more specifically, unpublished powder/bullet combinations.) USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Neither the writer, The High Road, nor the staff of THR assume any liability for any damage or injury resulting from use of this information.


All of my .40 loads so far have been very accurate; at least as accurate as factory ball and in almost every case more accurate.

This is my first attempt at working up a load with this combination, 180gr Berry's plated flat points, and American Select powder. The 180 gr BERBs have given me good results in the past with other powders.

My loads so far have been:
.40 Berry's 155 HBFP, 5.1 HP-38, and 5.5 HP-38
.40 Berry's 155 HBFP, 5.2 American select 1.24"
.40 MBC IDPA#7 4.0 Red Dot (very accurate in G23/Storm Lake).
.40 180 MBC FP, 4.0 Red Dot

All have proven reliable and accurate.

However my first attempt using American Select and BERB 180 FP is not going well for some reason. Alliant lists 5.1 as max for 180 grain XTP, so I backed off the recommended 10%(ish) and started at 4.7 grains. Feels about the same as the above 5.1 grains HP-38 155 BERB HB load above, and significantly lighter than federal and Lawman ball. I don't have a chrony yet.

No pressure signs, burns clean. However accuracy is not up to stuff; that is to say, I can't hit 8-inch plates at 20 yards offhand every time. I shot several groups from a rest at paper to confirm my suspicions, and accuracy is inconsistent (several random fliers). During the session I also shot several magazines full of the 155 BERB HP-38 load and factory ball back to back and had no trouble hitting the plates. Paper groups for factory and 155 BERB loads were about half the size.

Furthermore, I had several FTF jams, hangs up against top of barrel hood it appears. I've never had trouble with this bullet profile before. Or with any FTF jams that I recall.

IIRC I've always bought the "double struck" option from berry's before; and this time it's not specified. That couldn't be making the difference, could it? Does it possibly just need to be loaded hotter/closer to published max?

Maybe it's time to actually clean my Glock 23? :uhoh: :D Should I try the factory barrel (I've been shooting the storm lake exclusively because I mostly shoot lead in outdoor competitions and I don't really like the blast/concussion of the ported G23C barrel).


My instinct is to try a few and 4.9 and a few at 5.1 (assuming the 4.9s look okay), and possibly swap out the barrels and see if accuracy improves.

Guess I just wanted to see what you folks thought. American Select has proven excellent in 9mm and passable in .380 and .38 special so far. I like how clean it is. Like most large flake powders it does bridge occasionally in the Lee Pro Auto Disc if you get below about 3 grains (for the .380). You have to really pay close attention to visually check the powder charge each time and weigh charges frequently. I'm going to stick to HP-38 for the .380 in future, I think... if I can ever find any again.


BTW TJconevera has Berry's and Xtreme bullets in stock.

Plated bullets in the Glock are iffy for accuracy. Too much crimp will damage the fragile plating. Not enough crimp may allow bullet to be deep seated during feeding, causing more problems than lack of accuracy.:eek:

Some loads shoot well, some pattern like buckshot.

Precision Delta has good jacketed bullets at close to the same price. Put in your order and wait.

What bothers me is that I had really good results with my first few thousand, through multiple guns and multiple powders. I pulled one to check the crimp and there's a line intented into the plating but not cutting through it.

I checked my records and the previous ones I used were not the truncated cone/flat point style, but round nose flat point if that makes sense.

Maybe that makes a difference. I'm trying another powder now. I'll try the OEM barrel as well, with my first batch of AS loads. Maybe it'll work.

I can't figure this out... nothing I try increases accuracy of these bullets much.

benched at 21 feet, Glock 23C with non-ported Storm Lake barrel. (I shot a couple other groups with my reloads with the OEM barrel with similar results).

Bottom left Federal champion 180 fmj
Bottom right American select 4.7
Middle left red dot 4.0
Middle right red dot 4.5

Should I try varying OAL? Primers? These red dot loads were loaded with Remington 1 1/2 small pistol primers if that makes a difference (though the American Select loads were made with Tula SPP). I just bought 2K of these bullets so I need to find an accurate load... or they're worthless to me.

I'll try to find some more suitable powder, though AS and RD have proven accurate in the past in .40. Below are a couple of my reloads with MBC lead bullets at 30 feet compared to factory ball, factory on the left, reloads on the right.

1K,
I've used IMR 7625, Win Super Field and Universal for my 40 loads with great success. All my loads are with hard cast so far.
I just loaded some Berry's 180gr with 7625 and WSF. I have American Select, I think I'll duplicate your loads and try them out of my M&P and 4006.

I like A.S. powder also for pistol. I use it exclusively in my 45acp target loads.
BTW, Lee Manual has a listing for Am. Sel. with 180gr. lead. 4.6gr@854fps - 5.0@912fps

HP-38/w231 works fine for me with 165, 175 or 180. Shot ~1000 MBC, then switched to Xtreme plated, now just shoot my own cast, either Unique or HP-38. Did you mic the Berry's to make sure they are 0.401? On a REALLY good day I can do 2" @ 25yd with 5 gr HP38 behind a 165 cast, been shooting coated and it is really NICE. Been shooting WST in the 9, need to try it in the 40. Did 2" @ 10yds with a XDs today, before & after ~ 100 rnds. Coated just doesn't build up lube reside or leading.
Plated isn't cast but I load the same for both. The Xtreme's are very good bullets I just can't afford to shoot them much. I had to alox the MBC to get them to work good. Personally, my cast either PC or Hi-Tek coated (Bayou bullets) are better than plated and of course much less expensive.

You listed quite a few different loads there and one of them is basically the bullet and powder I use the most. 140Missouri IDP 7 with Red dot is my go to round for fun steel and plates but I use 4.9gr and its still a pretty soft load.
Berry's and other coated/plated bullets should be loaded closer to lead loads than FMJ loads. Plated bullets are softer and will tumble as the loads increase because of the gasses going around the bullet.
Also lead and plated bullets should not be used with a compensator, only FMJ.
I have never used American Select but if its slow burning and you need to build pressure to get the most out of it then use Jacketed bullets and save the Berry's, Rainier, and lead for the lighter loads with faster powders.
Someone mentioned Precision bullets. I did not like them although I used 9mm. I had to load them even softer than lead to get any accuracy out of them.

I would mic the mouth of the case and see if maybe your swaging the bullets a bit during crimp. You could also disassemble a round and re-mic a bullet.

Berry's may be softer than what you have been used to.

A good idea also, and I will try that. :cool: Clarification: At what point would I mic the mouth of the case? Am I looking for the final crimped diameter to be within a certain range? Micing a sized/expanded case mouth before seating/crimping isn't going to tell me anything, is it?

As I said, however, I had excellent results with Berry's 155-grain plated using the exact same setup I'm using now. Maybe this batch is a little softer or something.

Yes, for me as well. I have no trouble with that combination and it's my "steel and informal competition load". Glad to hear it works for you also.

I was asking specifically about Berry's plated 180s, which I'm having trouble with so far. Admittedly I haven't tried a bunch of powders, as there is very little variety available ATM.

__________________
Yeah, I have never use Berry's 180gr but I have shot boxes of 125gr 9mm and my convoluted point should have been that light loads with fast powders are best for this bullet. I have no experience with American Select at all.
I have shot quite a few boxes of Rainier 180's and they are quite soft although they are plated, therefore the "almost" lead loads. My 180gr "Rainier" load is 4.5gr of 231. Very accurate and soft.
Contrary to the others opinions above, I would not use slower pistol powders with either lead or coated/plated bullets. Personally I think this is why you are having accuracy issues. I would change my recipe and save the slow powders for full metal jacket just like I save my AA9, H110, and 2400 for the higher pressure, higher velocity loads.

Yes it is fast. Since the pressure has to be high for it to work well you should shelve it and use it only for fmj. Lots of other powders out there! Titegroup is all over in my neck of the woods and its fast too!

180 gr Berry's plated FP ... HP-38 ... Recommended loads to get me in the ballpark?
Hodgdon lists the following for Berry's plated bullets (BERB) - http://data.hodgdon.com/cartridge_load.asp
180 gr BERB FP W231/HP-38 OAL 1.125" Start 4.4 gr (872 fps) 26,400 PSI - Max 5.1 gr (984 fps) 33,500 PSI
For me with the same bullet/powder combination at 1.125" OAL, 4.2-4.3 gr produced mild recoil yet accurate loads in Gen3 G22/G23/G27 and M&P40. 4.4-4.5 gr produced more moderate recoil loads.

I think 10 rounds of 4.2, 4.4 and 4.6 gr will give you a good idea.

I also reduced the crimp, which may have been the entire problem in the first place.

Although Berry's MFG advertises their 40S&W bullets at .401", my last two boxes of 180 gr TCFP and RS (round shoulder) bullets ordered this year measured around .400".

As rcmodel usually recommends, I normally add .021" to the bullet diameter so I use .421" taper crimp with them.

Hope you have a better range session and keep us posted.

A bit better, but still not as accurate as factory or my previous loads with Berry's 180 or 155, or MBC 140 or 180. I don't get it. The 6.0 grains Power Pistol seems most promising, as long as I use the Storm Lake barrel rather than OEM G23C barrel.

Top left and right, OEM G23C ported barrel, bottom left Storm Lake bbl, bottom right 5.5 grains HP-38, Berry's 155 HBFP (my "known good" load for comparison).

Recoil moderate, ejection and function reliable. Minimal case bulge/swell in OEM barrel, no bulge in Storm Lake barrel. No "smileys" or primer issues. Not very accurate. :(

Storm lake with Power Pistol 6.0 seems best of this attempt, maybe 6.6. May need micro adjustable charge bar. My Lee auto disc orifice throws 6.0 and the next step throws 6.6.

As I PMed you before I sent you the Montana Gold 165 gr JHP bullets to try, your range experience is similar to mine. If you want accuracy, go with Montana Gold jacketed bullets over plated bullets.

When I switched my match caliber to 40S&W using two Glock 22's, my most accurate match loads were with Montana Gold FMJ bullets over plated bullets. I initially tested both Rainier and Berry's plated 180 gr TCFP bullets (and later 165/180 PowerBond plated bullets) but they did not come close to MG 155/165/180 gr FMJ/JHP bullet loads.


primary problem of what to do with all these Berry's 180s
Use the Montana Gold jacketed bullets for match shooting and use the plated bullets for practice.

BTW, with .400" diameter bullets that do not have out-of-round problem, you shouldn't need to use FCD. I used Lee carbide dies and I never needed to use FCD for my match 40S&W loads using Montana Gold bullets, whether I was using factory Glock barrels or tighter Lone Wolf barrels. I always chamber checked my finished match rounds to make sure they dropped in the barrel freely with a "plonk" and did not experience chambering issues during matches.

I shot quite a bit of rounds for the Herco threads (over 1000+ rounds for 9/40/45 load development) and kept you and this thread in mind when I did my 40S&W range tests.

I also repeated the same exact loads you tested in this thread along with comparing the accuracy with other bullet weights (like 165 gr plated bullets) and different powders. I will post my results as I complete my range tests with other powders and really looking forward to testing the new CFE Pistol for 40S&W. In the end, we find that Berry's 180 gr plated bullet was not to blame but we just needed to use the right powder and charges (along with longer OAL/COL).

Glad to be of service and isn't that what THR HR forum is all about? Team/community involvement to solve our reloading issues. :D

March 31, 2014, 01:02 PM
Yeah, I'm wondering if varying my OAL rather than changing charges would have been more productive. I'd just had such good results with 1.125 (and it's the OAL listed in all the manuals) that I took it as law.

Incidentally I tried 6.3 grains Herco at 1.125" and 1.14"... the 1.14" groups were fairly consistent but quite a bit larger than the 6.0 groups. The 1.125" groups showed some promise (one really good group) but seemed more inconsistent overall.

No smileys on brass or primer pressure issues with any loads. Recoil with 6.0 seemed just slightly less than Speer Lawman factory loads. 6.3 felt about the same.

bds
March 31, 2014, 01:20 PM
That's why I always verify accuracy consistency by conducting multiple range tests. If the accuracy is repeatable on 2-3 range tests, I would deem that load accurate. If the accuracy is not repeatable, I conduct further tests.

As you saw on the Herco threads, sometimes a small shot group may be a fluke and can't be repeated while most other shot group trends are repeatable.

I strongly disagree. Light charges of fast powders are a perfect combo for cast lead or plated bullets. Umpteen thousands of shooters have been shooting cast bullets with powders like Bulleye and AA#2 with great success for many decades.

Results seem confirmed to be very good! Shot a few hundred of these with my brother yesterday, steel plates at 16ish yards, and was getting very consistent hits at POA. He with his Gen 3 G22, me with my Gen 3 G23 and Storm Lake barrel. No malfunctions, even with my Storm Lake barrel which gave me FTFs occasionally with Berry's 180 FP loaded to 1.125".

Re-confirmed that 1.14-1.145" loads do indeed pass the plunk test in OEM Glock gen 3 barrels. Brass all looked good, no smileys or primer issues or bulging.

Thanks again bds! Saved me from continued frustration. :cool:
