Thanks for the replies, I'am contemplating a new powder unfortunatly my local gunshop doesnt carry much powder and selection is limited.
Also how well does powder hold up to storage?? I know they have a few cans that look rather old, probley older than I am.
As for lowering the charge i was getting decent accuracy out of one of the lighter loads but recoil was that of a 9mm or less. As that was noted in my log after shooting my G17, with factory ammo. It also wasnt a very reliable round as I had several FTE, out of the 14 rounds that were loaded at lower charges. Would the increased pressure from lowering my oal help in this area at all??
