    Is anyone familiar with Frontier bullets?
    I have some 40S&W 160gr FP copper plated.
    I can not find a listing in any of my manuals for AA #5 with 160gr plated.
    I figured to use the 165gr listing and start at about 6.6gr and work my way to 7.0gr. With 1.125 COL.
    Just want to confirm this looks right?

    Sounds about right.

    But take the barrel out of your gun to use it as a chamber gage to determine your OAL.
    1.125" might be fine with one bullet design, and hit the rifling leade with another one.

    What RC Model says is true.
    Do it just the way he said and the way you stated with your powder of choice and you will be good to go.
