Hey Everyone.....

First post, so here goes.

Picked up my almost new G-20C and immediately replaced the factory barrel with a Lone Wolf stock length barrel. As an afterthought, I also ordered a 6 inch 9x25 Dillon. WOW!!! Great toy!!!

I've only put a couple recipes of 9x25 through it using W296 and Blue Dot with a variety of bullet weights.

This is what I've got so far:

Speer 115 gr. Gold Dot HP.
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

11.5 Gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1527 fps
2) 1502 fps
3) 1555 fps
4) 1486 fps
5) error

12 Gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1581 fps
2) 1592 fps
3) error
4) error
5) 1550 fps

Happy with these results for the most part. Time for a new battery in the Chrony.....

Hornady 147 gr. JHP-XTP.
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

8.5 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1197 fps
2) 1124 fps
3) 1178 fps
4) 1201 fps
5) 1192 fps

9 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1304 fps
2) 1270 fps
3) 1267 fps
4) 1297 fps
5) 1299 fps

These are just over the max load for .357 SIG. I used that as a start point.

Bulk 147 gr. cast lead flat point
CCI #300 primers
5 shot string

9 gr. Blue Dot
Velocity:
1) 1252 fps
2) 1254 fps
3) 1229 fps
4) 1186 fps
5) 1236 fps

I figured these would be faster than the JHP's of the same weight. Shows you what I know. No leading though!!!

Random bulk 124 gr. FMJ
CCI #300 primers
5 shot strings

14.5 gr. Winchester 296
Velocity:
1) 1359 fps
2) 1226 fps
3) 1274 fps
4) 1288 fps
5) 1247 fps

15 gr. Winchester 296
Velocity:
1) 1365 fps
2) 1461 fps
3) 1385 fps
4) error
5) 1451 fps

Not too impressed with these. The first string was all over the velocity map. The second string tightened up a bit. Maybe a slightly heavier charge and/or a magnum primer next time???? (stupid battery!!!!!)
___________________________________

All the loads functioned perfectly. No ftf's or fte's. No mashed primers.

Judging by what I've seen here and found elsewhere on the 'net, I think I have some wiggle room with some of these loads.

Any helpful advice or comments would be greatly appreciated.

I got some 90 gr. JHP's kicking around. I really what to try these out!!!!
Lighting one of these off would be an experience. Any ideas for a start load???

Thanks Everyone.

Mike.

Lest we forget.
