    Many reloaders have expressed frustration of not finding load data for lead pistol loads as current published load data from Hodgdon seems to lack popular calibers and bullet nose type/weights like 9mm 125 gr RN and 40S&W/10mm, etc. (especially for loading larger sized Berry's plated bullets).

    Using 1999 Winchester Reloaders Manual, I compiled a lead load data pdf for popular pistol calibers to include 9mm, 40S&W, 10mm, 45ACP and others using W231, WST, WSF, and 296 (Since Hodgdon verified HP-38 to be same exact powder as W231, you can substitute HP-38 for W231).

    Although 1999 load data lacks OALs, I hope it will provide reference start/max powder charges as you determine your own Max/Ideal OAL using your pistol/barrel/magazine.

    Here are some sample lead load data from the lead load data pdf - http://www.thehighroad.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=158679&stc=1&d=1328775435
