    dragon68 - do you have a chronograph?
    I'd be really interested in speed of both of your loads.

    That 44 Mag load has got to be a king-sized boom.
    & that 357 load sounds interesting as well.

    I had an old jug of Green Dot, and no real matching data, so I started out safe with it based on the lead data I had. Please note, the following data exceeds the max target load listed for LSW in an old Alliant Reloaders Guide.

    200gr IDP#4-XD
    5.0gr Green Dot
    WLP primer

    Avg 715fps

    So based on that and the Lyman 49th, I wouldn't hesitate to push it up to 6.0 gr Green Dot. The recipe that appears closest to a match shows a max of 6.4gr, but I'd need to chronograph that all the way up to see what it's doing before I'd try to push based on data for a completely different bullet design.

    Hondo I do not have a chronograph yet(my next to do) lol. But yes they are a strong mag load for lead.I plan on using the 44 for pig hunting and the 357 is a taurus 669 with 6" barrel i bought new 20 years ago(at Wal mart lol) that i love to shoot.With that load i can nail a tennis ball at 50 yards almost every shot :).

    200 Gr LSWC (More Bullets IDPA 1):

    W231 - 5.6 Gr makes 870 FPS average

    WST - 4.5 Gr no velocity data yet, but very clean and soft shooter.

    DISCLAIMERS, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK, ETC.

    9mm:
    MBC 125 grain "smallball" LRN (mine are sized .358" for my .357 bore 9mms)
    3.7gr Red Dot
    CCI 500
    1.09" OAL
    Accurate and reliable in SIG P226 and Beretta 92FS

    .40 S&W
    MBC IDP #5 180 grain TCFP (also works with IDP #7 140 gr TCFP)
    4.0 grains Red Dot
    1.125" OAL
    CCI 500
    Works fine, accurate, light recoil. I don't have a chrony but the the 140 grain likely won't make major if that matters

    .45 ACP
    230 "Softball!" RN
    4.0 or 4.4gr Red Dot, or 5.6 or 6.0 grains Herco (all are accurate, herco 6.0 is most accurate for me)
    1.24" OAL
    CCI 300
    excellent plinker/target/action load. (The 4.0 load may not cycle a Glock 30 reliably one handed)

    9mm Subsonics

    I haven't seen this one listed yet and it's my favorite.

    147gr Subsonic
    4.8 gr or .34 disk setting HS-6
    Sm pistol primer
    1.078

    Accurate and very mild shooting in any of my 9mm pistols. Brass lands in a pile a few feet from me.

    Doesn't anybody shoot rifle here ?
    How about some nods for the whitetail 135 & 165 for 30-30 ? Would like to see what others are shooting....

    I bought some #2 Whitetail (135 gr., .309 dia.), but I don't have much brass to play with at the moment..

    I load the 165 grain Whitetail like this for a fun plinker:

    MBC 165 grain Whitetail
    Primer of your choice
    10.5 grains (or as much as you can fit into the 2.2cc scooper that comes with the Lee dies) of Trailboss

    This is good for about 1200 fps. Cheap, low recoil and report, punches neat holes in paper and destroys milk jugs at 50 yards

    Here's my 9mm plinker load:

    MBC Parabellum
    115 grain LRN
    4.5 grains (one .5cc scoop) of Unique

    Cheap cheap cheap. I can load these for about ten cents using recycled brass and they work great. I'm glad my pistol has adjustable sights, though. Different POI from factory ammo.

    MBC 357 Action 158 gr LSWC
    Mixed 38 Special brass
    5.8 gr Alliant Power Pistol
    Bullet seated to crimp grove
    medium / heavy crimp

    Good +p load that closely duplicates recoil of Factory Winchester Super X 158 Gr LSWCHP in both Ruger GP100 4" and S&W 640-3 2 1/8". I can keep them all in the black at 50' with the Ruger shooting double action, not so much with the Smith.

    MBC PPC#2 148 gr DEWC
    Mixed 38 Special brass
    2.9 gr Alliant Bullseye
    Bullet seated to crimp grove
    Very light crimp (just enough to remove the flare)

    Accurate in both the Ruger & Smith. Makes it easy to run through 200 rounds a session in the little J - frame
