6.8g starting load. I run 7g all the time with my Hornady 115g XTP's in my Beretta 92 and Glock 19. Good luck and be safe!

Hey thanks for the replies, starting at 6.8grs makes a lot more sense to me, my nosler reloading guide #6 was saying that 115gr jhp such as the xtp could be loaded with 7.5 starting-8.5max for blue dot, I thought this sounded awful hot, any thoughts about this info? Or am I maybe missing something obvious?
