    As the title says, looking to load another new to me 40 S&W combo, does anyone have any experience with this particular bag of tricks?

    I have the data from accurate, so I have a safe charge range, and its for the exact weight and profile bullet, I'm just wondering what others may have found for a sweet spot with this.

    I settled on 5.7gr. Functions every .40 pistol and a PC40 and shoots better than factory ammo in all of them. I believe 5.9 is max.

    Yeah, I think the load datat I have shows 5.4-6.0gr. I rarely ever load at the min charge, so i was going to start at 5.6 or 5.7, and load 5.9 too. See how those two group. These are for my dads pistol, a hi-point. He doesnt shoot this one much, but told me he would like to have me load him 1k for his birthday. So, I figure you only turn 61 once I am going to get them cranked out for him.
