A good competition/target load. Will make IPSC major with a PF of at least 185. It is accurate with light recoil in a Glock 20.

This is a good higher power load. It is at the top end of IMR’s published data, but it is a very tolerable load. Accurate and packs a good punch. Penetration makes this a worthy hunting load for thin skinned medium sized game.

This is a great load for a heavy barrel Thompson Encore. Accurate out past 500 yards from a 1 in 12 twist 26" barrel. Not sure I would trust the Nosler Ballistic Tip bullet to perform well out at those ranges.

This is a mild load for plinking using commercial cast LSWC. It is accurate from my 5.5" Ruger and is also easy to shoot for target. I have not found any leading after range sessions shooting up to 200 of these loads.

This is a very accurate load in my Encore with a 12" barrel. It is mild in recoil and fun to shoot.

This load is about perfect for lead in a Casull. I found it to have a light but sharp recoil. I experienced no leading in my Thompson.

I worked this load up for hunting and it is accurate from my 12" barrel. There are heavier loads available using 2400, and I tried them up to 27.5 grains, but 25.2 is the most accurate for me.
