200 gr. WFNGC BD load

Finally had a chance to get the chrono out. I loaded up 10 - 200 gr. WFNGC that I purchased from DT. I am loading 10.5 gr. of Blue Dot in new Starline brass using CCI 350 primers. With the 200 gr. seated to 1.250" OAL I am averaging 1230 fps out of the LWD stock length barrel in my M20 Glock. I am thinking that this is about all I can safely expect velocity wise. I do not want to push it to the max. The primers look good. Do I need to bump it up a little or am I there. This is my walking in the backcountry pistol, not a target gun.

That sounds great...according to some they might try for more but 1200+ stock length is is a great deal of energy to deliver.

I have used that same load behind the Hornady 200XTP 1.260" and I consider it max for my guns.

Best regards!

Hey KS, seems like all day I keep sharing this same data. ha.
I been loading the G20 with stock barrel and 6" barrel with Cast Performance Hard Cast bullets (same thing as DT's) 200gr WFNGC and 10.5/10.7grs of BD ( a tad more but I won't give that info to personally cover my six)
COAL 1.260. I am getting tremendous accuracy even at 100 yds.

I like, (or the gun likes) this particular loading. It is a good deer killer even at 100yds as well.

Bottom line. Even in the "stock barrel" G20, I have been loading the 200gr WFNGC with 10.7grs BD for a looong time no problems at all and as I said great accuracy 1.260. The LW barrel should do even better with the accuracy department. I have NEVER once ever seen a bad sign from 10.7grs BD in that stock barrel. If your going to woods walk and use this combo, and especially with the AM barrel, I would not for a moment be worried about 10.5grs BD.

1230fps with the 200gr hard cast is nothing to sneeze at amigo. If the gun likes it, and you like it, and it is reliable and accurate in your gun, and NO bad signs, I would feel good with it, and do !

Stay safe.

For what it's worth I shoot a lot of the Oregon Trail Laser Cast 200 grain bullets with 10 grains of blue dot. (I think OT sells them in 180 grain now instead of 200, but my gun shop has tons of the 200's) They are hard cast but don't have a gas check, but that doesn't seem to hinder performance in any way. I don't own a chronograph but can tell from recoil that that 10 gr. BD is defiantly a full power load. I use a Glock 20 with 6 inch wolf barrel

I worked up to 10.5gr BD with DT 200gr WFNGC's & CCI300's, and I got an 1180fps average out of my 6" LWD barrel. I have also been doing load development with Longshot, Steel and 800X. Longshot/CCI350 has been the best for me so far, but I haven't gotten to chrono my heavy Steel or 800X loads yet. Maybe I'll revisit BD with CCI350's if I'm not happy with Steel or 800X.

I'm shocked that 10.5 grains of blue dot only yields 1180, especially considering its from the long 6 inch barrel. I don't have a chronie, but from my seat of the pants test (kick, muzzle blast, report) my load of 10 grains of blue dot with the 200 gr. is at least as much if not more then the double tap factory 10mm loads

Yeah, that's what made me put more effort toward Longshot for this bullet. That velocity was using CCI300's, but I didn't think mag primers would make a huge difference. I really like Blue Dot, so I'll keep trying. I didn't think it would be this hard to get to 1300fps out of a 6" barrel...

Perhaps try using a very firm crimp, I use a Lee factory crimp die and do one full turn, which is considered a very firm crimp. Its my understanding that with slow powders like blue dot, this will help ignition and you will get a more complete burn of the powder
