I meant loding them to 1.123 aol.

I normaly do shot strings of 10 rounds but you can do anything you want...lol

USPSA only shoots 3 to chrono your ammo at a big match, more if neccesary.

Ten per string usually seem to be the norm. The better chronos will do ES, SD, AVG, and list the HI and LOW velocities for you, quite a nice little feature.

The USPSA chrono procedure is so jacked up, its too easy for someone to be shooting lower PF during the match than at the chrono. Sure they say "we want 7 rounds from a mag on your belt"...solution? Don't put rounds in your mags until you're up to shoot. The only true way to get a random selection would be to take the chamber rounds from UASC. Though, on a limited count stage, it'd be easy to throw in a heavy round.

I love to reload for my G23, but I was looking at your loads cause I picked up some TiteGroup the other day, Longshot too.

Anyways, anybody know the max OAL that will cycle/function in an XD40?

1.150 seems to be the concensus

Hey R/T, try 3.7 grains of VV320 under a 180 plated bullet.
750 fps 135pf ....seated to 1.130 oal

4.7 grains of VV320 under a 180 plated bullet.
It should be about 930 fps for 168 pf ...seated to 1.150 oal

All fired from a 5 inch XD.

I load my 9mm to 1.155. Seems to be a solid OAL.
Im toying with loading some 9mm for my wife to help her out a bit, what bullet weight are you using, Scott?

I shoot 147g JHP (Zero Bullets) under 3.0 grains of TiteGroup. It is a very soft round that make PF. It shoots very well out of my XDs.

"VV" is typically shorthand for VihtaVouri. While Ichy can likely confirm, I'm pretty sure that the VV320 he is referring to is VihtaVouri N320.
Here I have been looking for winchester :shock: :evil: 320
