Loaded some .40 S&W Minor ammo using Titegroup, chrono'ed it, and did some analyses. Figured I'd share it here in case folks would find it helpful.

Info is in attached PDF file.

Cheers.

Those velocities seem pretty high. How short are you loading to?? :surprise:

Mr Loin:

Your results almost mirror mine that were fired from anSTI Trojan.

3.3gr/TG gave me a PF of 137800 vs your 133900.

I did a 3.6gr/TG and got a PF of 149000.

Hi RePete,

Good to hear we're in the same range.

What bullets do you use? I assume you're using 180 gr bullets?

Cheers.

I figured they had to be shorter than mine. I load to 1.2".

How much lower PF are you getting by going to 1.2" compared to my PF numbers?
I'm keen to find out how much OAL affects PF.

I figured they had to be shorter than mine. I load to 1.2".

My IDPA load for my STIs is 3.7 grains of Titegroup, behind a Zero, 180 grain, jhp, with OAL of about 1.2".

PF hovers around 135. I don't remember exactly, but, I remember that one of my Trojans is a little slower than the other one, and my Eagle.

4.7tg with a Montana Gold 180gr JHP and 1.190 makes a 172ish in my 5" very consistently.
