Correction Added!

First off, let me correct myself because I stated it backwards. X-Terminator/AA 2230 is finer grained than TAC. The bulk densities I quoted are also from the Ramshot #3 load guide. There may have...

No need to apologize, buddy, but yeah, getting the req'd velocity is a little more challenging from the 16" barrel. My next attempt at the Mk 262 Mod 1 will be with TAC. I'm there and beyond with TAC...

Well, thanks for the kind words! N340 is an excellent powder for .40 S&W. The data I have from older V-V load guides is a bit warmer than their newer data and there have been no changes to N340 that...

I definitely agree with JSG concerning Blue Dot. I used to use more of it than any other powder in handgun loads. It and the Hornady 210 gr. JHP for .41 Magnum are what I started with 28 years ago. I...

m_f, sectional density is simply a ratio of weight to caliber with slight differences for FMJ & JHPs. I doubt you'll see much, if any, variation between JHP types of the same weight.
