    Powder charge for .40 S&W 155gr XTP w/ Unique?

    I can't find starting load data anywhere online or in my manuals. I'm using Unique powder and trying to load 155gr. Hornady XTP in .40 S&W.

    Anyone have a recipe?

    Closest I could find

    would be:

    7.2 gr Unique @ 1048 fps
    1.120" OAL
    WSP

    I used the Speer Gold Dot data, crossref'd with Alliant data. While Hornady doesn't list Unique, the velocity is well within the min (950) and max (1200) recommended for the powders Hornady has listed.

    Did that help?

    I don't care for the dancing banana.

    The Internet is your friend.

    Make sure you see the line:
    REDUCE RIFLE AND HANDGUN CHARGE WEIGHTS BY 10% TO ESTABLISH A STARTING LOAD.
    The exceptions to this are the loads listed as "target" in the 38 Special and 45 ACP data tables.
