    When I had same issue with 5 grains behind 125gr cast bullet, the recoil was very light. I've shot much hotter ammo that worked fine. Weird yes. But there's no other explanation. If the slide is cycling all the way, but the case is still in the chamber, then u back off on charge. Why on earth would u increase it? What would that fix?

    Now it might be you just can't get a load that works with this powder, bullet, and gun. Like Centaur 1.

    If that's the case, you might wanna try a faster powder, as I have already suggested in a previous post. Your bullets are light, and they're cast. And you're using a G26, which has characteristics which I've already described. All these things suggest that a faster powder might work better. Seems like Red Dot works well for evans price.

    OP, I'm not assuming you are an idiot, nor that you aren't using proper load data. I'm just guessing that load data is wrong for your gun. I've already given this issue a lot of thought, since experiencing it myself. Just sharing, and hopefully helping in the end.

    If you completely ignore a fairly comprehensive and detailed explanation which has already been posted without even making an argument against it, good luck with the progress! :)

    Muddydogs; have you noticed if some the cases that do eject come straight back and maybe hit you in the head once in a while? I am serious, I find that when I am having troubles with to light a load a few of the cases are coming back at me instead of flying off to the right like they should.

    I haven't read all the other posts. But it sounds like your extractor in your Glock may be worn out and not grabbing the spent cartridges. The Glock extractors are not as robust as S & W M&P semi-auto's.

    I hope this helps.

    Try shooting a few factory loads and see if you have the same results.

    Why yes I remember 1 case landing on the top of my hat. Easy to find the brass when its on your hat.

    Turkey season is in full swing so I have not got to try a little more powder yet but plan to this weekend. My 380 dies showed up and I loaded up a test batch and plan to shoot them as well as the 9mm on Saturday. The Lee 358 105 SWC's seam to feed better in the 380 lcp then in either of the 9mm's I tried them in.
