Mudrush has led me to believe that I can push further with it (mainly due to space concerns with the LONG Barnes bullets). The 11.4gr 800-X load shows light case expansion, so I know I can go further, but that load is HEAVILY compressed, so I'll likely run out of space before I get much more velocity. With Longshot, I should be able to get to 1500-1550fps out of my G29. As soon as I get more Barnes bullets, I'll work up some loads with Longshot.
Looking forward to the data 21Carrier. Longshot has become my favorite 10mm powder (and not just because I have 100lbs. of it. ) It seems to meter well and you can get really good velocities from it.
