#13193 Lightest bullet I've got right now is 40gr - but I'm due to place a Midsouth order anyway. I've had good luck with their bullets, so I'll have to get some 34 and 30 gr. Lighter than I'm used to with 5.56, but that's why I got the TCM.

And my local shop came through for me on the Lil' Gun! 2 pounds of it in the cabinet now. 3000 fps out of a pistol would be something to see.

#13203 I doubt that you'll see 3000fps in a 13 " barrel. 2900, maybe. In any case, be careful and work up real slowly. When I'm in a grey area with the TCM (most of the time), I'll work up in .1 or .2gr increments.

#13562 Well, I got some 40 Gr loaded up with between 9.5 and 10.3gr of Lil Gun, and then winter came back with a vengeance. Maybe if the forecasted snow doesn't happen this weekend I'll get to run them out. Wonder where I left my chrono last fall???

#13621 10.1 grains of Li'l Gun with the 40 gr Hollow point Armscor bullet gets me 1955 fps out of my 5" 1911.
10 grains of Li'l Gun with the Hornady 46 gr Bee bullet gets 1952fps.
I use Federal 205 primers in both loads.
