I like the big banger's, try 6.7 grains of Longshot with a Berry's 180 grain bullet. These definitely let you know you're shooting a 40 cal, lol.
I'm using 5.7 grains of Unique behind a 115 grain Xtreme plated bullet and it shoots great. I just ordered another thousand 124 grain Berry's...
Before I bought my Ruger SR9-C, I loved shooting my XD-40, thought it was great.
Since I've owned the SR9-C, the 9mm is absolutely my...
I've been using Unique in my 40 S&W loads as my primary powder. Although I have tried Universal, Longshot, and Blue Dot, they all work fine too....
I'll typcially shoot 50 rounds out of my 9mm and 50 rounds out of my 40 S&W on a range outing. That comes out to be about $12-$13/week, shooting...
I've fired quite a bit of S&B 9mm, never had any problems with it. Its priced great, so I'll continue to use it.
Shooting my 9mm reloads out of my SR9-C, at 12 cents/round......that's 4000 rounds. I've put about 1000 through it in the 1.5 years I've had it.
Unique works great in 9mm and I've also found Longshot works good in heavier bullets, 124 grain and up.
I'd go with Unique or Universal for both. I load Unique in 9mm and 40 S&W and its always worked great.
H-4895 is my go-to powder in .223. 50 grain to 69 grain bullets.
I really enjoy shooting my 9mm and 40 S&W and I can plink away with the .22....
For general hunting with the .308, up to Elk size game, I think a bonded 165 grain bullet would be ideal. For deer, the plain old Remington...
At least as many as any AR-15, the mini 14 is a very rugged and durable design.
Remington 700 .308

I have a Mini-14 ranch that I've owned since 2009. Its a great carbine and will produce 1.5" groups with my handload's and premium bullets. I've...
Since I own an SR9-C and its awesome, I'd vote for that. The SR40-C would probably be a good shooter too.
I use Remington, in my .308 and .223 exclusively. Federal is soft and heavy, with less capacity. I'm very pleased with my Remington brass, I can...
I've shot some Federal 9PBLE +p+ 115 grain loads in my SR9-C. They weren't bad at all. I don't think Federal would manufacture ammo that would...
A hit with a 9mm beats a miss with a 45.:D
I got into reloading back in 2005, after researching how much it could save me in cost/round.
I have a couple thousand 40 S&W rounds loaded...
