I recently came across a quanity of Alliant's Power Pistol handgun powder and would like to load some 155gr.JHP with it. The rounds will be shot from a Glock 22(.40S&W) with a Bar-Sto barrel, so the worry of an unsupported case at the ramp area should not be a problem.
Alliant publishes data for a 150 gr. bullet, so I do have a good starting point. I also set the OAL at 1.130" so that, by itself, should reduce some pressure. I know the drill, start at 10% below max and work up, and by starting the load at .22 gr. less than the data for the 150 gr. load I should be ok.
However, I was hoping some you reloaders out there might be Power Pistol fans and have some data and results you could pass along.
Thanks in advance for any advice and/or help. Good shootin' to ya' dgang

I'm trying to find some Power Pistol people reloading for the 10mm in 180 grains myself.

I have some good 9mm carbine loads using PP near its max but none in 40 SW.

It's a good powder, they just need to update their online site to offer more data.
