Hornady Reloading Manual

Can anyone who has this book give me the load specified for 40 S&W using 200 gr FMJ bullet and Power Pistol powder (made by Alliant)? I need to know the max overall length, min and max loads, etc. I haven't received this book yet in the mail and I need this info since I need to have these loads for tomorrow.

P.859 of the Hornady book says: for the 40 S&W, 200 grain FMJ (discontinued) with Power Pistol powder the min load is 4.6 and the max is 6.0. C.O.L. is 1.125in. Need anything else just holler.

Thanks man. I just loaded up some 30 bullets using the above and will try them tomorrow. I wonder how this very heavy bullet will shoot through my extended ported glock barrel.

The hornady 8th edition lists 4.2-5.6 grains @ 1.125 OAL. I wonder how many more manuals till you use no powder.
