Default .40S&W 180-gr load request ~ training load for my PD issued G22

Hello again!

I am looking for some suggestions for a training load for .40S&W with a 180-gr TCMJ.

I have Unique, AA #7, Red Dot, Green Dot, Titegroup, and others.

I have been using Unique so far, and it seems good. But if I can get a real good G22 recipe I would really appreciate it!

nite,
I can only tell you what I use in my Glock 22RTF. I shoot Berry's 180gr TCMJHP over 6.6gr SR4756. It pushes that bullet out at 1000fps, give or take a little, is accurate and has one of the lowest pressure ratings of any powder out there.

Longshot has rather low pressure too only I haven't worked up any loads with it yet.

Hope this helps.

Thank You, Skip~

It seems that the more time I spend here the more I'm convinced that I should try some SR4756. I'll be shooting the forty a lot. Thanks for your ideas!

I too like SR4756 it puts enough powder in the case that leave very little room between the powder and bullet with out compressing the powder

I've been using 5.8 - 6.0 gr of WSF with a 180gr jacketed bullet almost as long as I've been loading 40 S&W, and that's been since 1991. It is a good powder that meters very well, no chance of a double, good loading density. Burns clean and accuracy is great. Max is 6.2 gr per Winchester's guide.

Nite, I have been using 4.6gr Universal Clays in my Glock 22. This load makes power factor of 170 for USPSA major. This is acheived with Zero brand 180gr TCM. Very lite muzzle jump and smooth slide operation.
