Bullet - 40 gr. Armscor SJHP
Case - New, sized Armscor
Primer - Tula SPP (KBV-9)
OAL - 1.270
Powder - Lil Gun
Charge - 9.4, 9.6, 9.8, 10.0 gr.
The 9.4 & 9.6 gr. charges failed to extract.
9.8 & 10.0 gr. functioned, dropped cases just behind me, and were more accurate than W296/H110 loads.
Thanks for the update and the data, Jessie. Your data backs up the thinking that we might be on the right track. I believe that using Lil'Gun and the SPP, we will be able to walk up the loads and end up with a SAFE, accurate bullet, with blazing velocities. I sure wish we had some way to check chamber pressures, but why try to re-invent the wheel, because Hodgdon has already done the homework for us! THANKS again, Jessie!
