Pistol Gas Sub Loads, Various Bullets & Powders

Post by certifiable » Sun Oct 18, 2015 10:23 pm

My original thread, viewtopic.php?f=141&t=83844, has became a mess so I am starting this to provide better organized data. Not all of the the loads are finished or posted but will be updated as I complete testing. As always, anyone that wants a copy of the files should PM me with their email addres

Thanks for the great info! I've had some troubles getting my 10.5" to cycle subs, so this gives me a perspective to compare mine to.

Good deal certifiable

Thread is awesome.

From your data it looks like the hornady 220 tipped HPBTs I just put over 10.9 gn of 5744 will be supersonic in my 10.5" barrel. I thought I would be right around 1,000 fps since their load data showed ~1,100 fps out of a 16" barrel.

Glad you find it useful. Remember that any of these loads you might try in your gun will likely need some adjusting.

Thanks for posting this data, I really appreciate it. Is there any chance you have it in a pdf format?
