DESTRUCTIVE LOAD PRESSURE DATA!!!

THESE LOADS EXCEED SAAMI SPECS. THEY ARE INTENDED TO RESULT IN
CATASTROPHIC FAILURE OF THE FIREARM AND/OR THE RELOADED COMPONENTS AS
A MEANS TOWARD COMPILING LOAD PRESSURE DATA. [/B]

Hodgdon powder has some loads where LIL GUN out does H110 at 44 mag. That is not easy to do. http://www.hodgdon.com/


There is also one load for the 38 Super:1.265" 135 gr 12.8 gr LIL GUN 32,000 cup 1357 fps.

I used that data to calculate a +P+ load for the 9mm: 1.169" 130 gr 13.8 gr [case full] 46,000 cup 1558 fps.

So far, I have only worked up to 13.3 gr for 1524 fps.

The recoil feels different [big push like black poweder] and the brass looks different. Other hot laods make little rings on the side, but LIL GUN leaves the brass smooth like a wimp load.
