Hi, I'm interested in reload for 40S&W. I've loaded rifle before but not pistol ammo. I'd like to use midway once fired nickel plated brass, rainier 155 gr. TCJ bullets, CLAYS powder, and (insert compatable primer here). Anyone got any advice? I'm looking for a clean, accurate, cheap, soft shooting load.

its years since i loaded my own...but i suggest working with a 180 gr FMJ over clays. the heavier bullet generates less muzzle flip and a comfortable "thump" for recoil. all this makes reacquiring your front sight a lot quicker. hope this helps. have fun. BE SAFE.
