    As the title says, I'm looking at the combination for my dad and his Hi-Point pistol. He is wanting me to load up 1k rounds just to have around. I plan on using AA#2 and shooting for target velocity.

    Anyone here have any experience with SWC profile in a Hi-Point pistol? Do they like them?

    I am loading Missouri Bullet IDP #7 RNFP with 231/HP38 at mid load with good results with both of my 40 CAL High Points. I load the bullet so that about 1/16 of the straight shank of the bullet is above the brass. I have never tried a SWC as of yet but it should work OK when the length is adjusted for a good feed with a couple dummy rounds seating them deeper till they work then using that work up an accurate load.

    I have loaded light 155gr SWC for a Beretta and it is my most accurate load. By light I mean 900fps, I used Tite group.

    You will want to make a dummy round, no primer or powder, and determine an OAL that will chamber. Then make a few rounds, 5-10 each, starting with minimum load data and work up. SWC in auto pistols can cause trouble, so verify your loads work before you make 1000.
