Okay, as referred by you I called Bob the owner of Penn Bullets and he set me up with a compilation set. Two sets of 250 cnt. each of 120 something grain cone nose, then 250 cnt. 120 something grain Truncated Nose, then 150 count of 147 grain ones that he's had GREAT results with he claims (can't remember what style/type/shape) He also added in for free 50 LSWC's even though he's heard many claims that the XD's just don't like them, to say the least. He knew how interested I was in them and how popular they are in competition and was curious as to my results with them so he through them in. Total price shipped was $55. Not TOO bad. All bullets are Lead.
Next he referred me to a guy named Bill Boggs to school me on recipes I want to start with and where to go from there (as far as charges are concerned). I'm about to E-Mail this Boggs guy now.
I'll post all feedback and maybe some video once these arrive in a couple weeks and after my trigger work is finished.
This is just me, but do you know Mr. Boggs? You are going to solicite loading info from someone you don't know w/o doing any research yourself? That is an eventual road to disaster IMO. Get a couple of good reloading manuals tht have lead bullet data. Speer #14 & Lyman #49, do the reading, understand what you are loading & why, then MAYBE on line data will make some sense to you.
