Hey Gang...here we go again.

I had time for a quick trip to the range last week with more 9x25 loads. I used the Speer 110 Gr. GDHP and Hornady 90 Gr. XTP for this run. This is the first outing with the Hornady XTP. The Speer bullet I've used before, but I pushed it a little harder this time.

The targets were at 25 yards and the Chrony was at about 3 yards.

I'm happy with the consistancies of the 13 gr. and 14.5 gr. loads. All loads gave 100% functioning.

No malfunctions of any kind.

The last load hit 2000 FPS!!!!! It was also accurate. See pics.

I found the XTP's to be more accurate than the GDHP's. Again, see pics below.

I've got some 158 gr. JHP's loaded up and ready to go. I just need time to shoot them. Stay tuned.

That's all I've got for now. As always, suggestions and comments are most welcome.

Thanks.

Mike.
