Do NOT use real fast powder such as Clays with the .40. Unique works great. Try about 5.5gr. of Unique and the 165gr. Berrys for a mild load. Watch your OAL. Don't seat too deep and get a good taper crimp.

oops, just saw that you were using WSF. Check your book. WSF is a good powder for the .40, but I found it a tad dirty. Unique was actually cleaner.

WSF is a tiny bit slower than Unique. Run either above midrange &they are pretty clean. I load all my 40s to 1.125" For 165gr Berry's or Ranier, 5.8gr runs along nicely near 1000fps, very accurate.

My book books didn't list a load for this bullet. I loaded some some 180 gr. xtp's with 5.4 gr. of wsf seated too 1.127. shot great out of the g23. A pound of unique is on my list. Thanks for the replys.

Is that with unique or wsf? Thanks.

Actually, either would work, they are that close. You won't find any data for plated bullets except on the AccurateArms site. Everyone else shows lead or jacketed. Use lead data or a bit higher for comperable loads to jacketed.
