Hodgdon’s ’Longshot’ START with 10.5grs work UP and WATCH for pressure signs. this load is from Hodgdon’s 2006 manual. They suggest using Nosler JHP’s. I use Rainier’s cheaper 135gr JHP with good results. noted moderate accuracy. mild orange muzzle flash in darkness. report and blast however, are FAR from mild! (vel 4" BBL)

This load is based on a Berrys Plated RNFP bullet using a Reminton SP primer and a heavy crimp from a Lee Factory Carbide taper crimp die, which I use on all of my reloads.I load this consistently at 9.5 grs. and have had no problems in my Springfield XD. This load is very accurate and nice shooting with moderate recoil.
