So as a starting point, in my handgun the factory load shoots out from 2015- 2109.
I started loading enforcer at 9 grains and worked up in .1 increments, my first ladder went from 9 grains up to 10, velocities moved from 1600 to 1968 fps at the even 10 grains. The gun cycles very well the recoil and fire ball is mild to say the least.
So this weekend I loaded up the next ladder starting with 10.1 and ending at 10.6. Again the gun cycled nicely, and there were no signs of over pressure. I was at the local indoor shooting range so I was not able to chronograph these loads. But attached are photos of both the factory case used as my test standard, and the last case fired at 10.6 grains. As you can see the factory case (right side) has the primer starting to flatten, where the enforcer at 10.6 does not show any signs of pressure yet. In the second photo you can see the body of both rounds from the side that was facing the ramp in my barrel.
Next week I am going to try 10.7 to 11 hopefully over a chronograph. More to come.
