Speer Reloading Manual #14 Question

    Does anybody have the Speer Reloading Manual #14? If you do, does it show the Gold Dot Short Barrel .40 S&W loads?

    I've shot some of these factory loads in my Kahr MK40 and I like the results, especially compared to the .40 hand loads I'm doing now, which is 8.2gr of HS-6 with a 165 gr Montana Gold FMJ bullet seated to 1.120 C.O.L. If that load is in there I'll be buying the the #14 manual, otherwise I'll stick to the #13 I already have. It's just that #13 doesn't have that load in it.

    I realize this may still be proprietary info so I'll not be surprised if it isn't in there.

    Does anybody have any Gold Dot SB loads that do work? Or do I stick with what I have available in the manuals?

    The Speer Number Fourteen Manual Has 40s&w Hs6 Data.

    But it surely is NO big deal.

    If #14 doesn't have the SB loads, you're right, it's no big deal - because I won't be buying it. I already have #13 and can't see another one that doesn't have what I want in it.
