Re: Favorite powder for .40 S&W
I have shot a few hundred rounds with it now using TG, I am loading them with 4.5-4.6 grains under a 165 grain bullet and the accuracy has been surprising. It shoots really well.
TG meters almost perfectly for me and doesn't very more than .1 up or down. I have a single stage and just take my time. If I shoot 50-100 rounds a month I am staying fresh.
I have also double charged a case a few times just to see what it looks like. It is obvious if you are paying attention. Really I don't see the danger for someone who has attention to detail, if you don't you probably shouldn't reload.
I am still a newbie reloader but the powder is only as dangerous as the reloader is careless IMO.
No doubt this thread has made me more careful though and I thank everyone for their responses.
