HI Calguns,

Can someone help me find the load data for:

I have X-treme Bullets 10/40-165gr RNFP with 231 winchester powder. I can't seem to find the data needed. Start Load ?, Max Load ?, Overall length?

I am loading 180 grn lead TCFP at 4.8grns of W-231

Overall length of 1.125" max ( actually loaded them at about 1.120")

I will dig out another load book I have to see if it shows the 165 grn bullet you're using...

Be back soon.

Thanks guys. No luck also. Any suggestion on type of bullet to load on .40 with 231 winchester. All I see are data for HP.

Speer Manual # 13 - 231 5.8 - 6.3 grns. Loaded to 1.135". Manual stated that the 3.8 starting load was equivelant to a "lite law enforcment load.

I shoot IDPA with a 40. My load is 165 gr Montana Gold bullet, Win small primer, 5.6 gr Win 231. That load puts 20 rounds in less than 2 inches at 25 yards with a machine rest. S&W M&P standard pistol.

If I have 180gr RNFP (Copper Plated) will have the same data. Sorry for my ignorance,do you know what FP stand for in RNFP?
