    Speer short barrel rounds

    What does Speer do to simulate standard ballistics in short barrels?
    Is it a proprietary powder, different head space, or what? Is it a pipe dream to think of loading your own shortbarrel rounds; just curious and thought some of you guys might know or point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

    I think they just worked on the rounds until they came up with a formula that worked.

    That is basically what you will have to do. Try different powders, and primers, lead, ect until you get a round that delivers the velocity your looking for without having too much pressure. Of course they probably don't use a single off the shelf powder for there production, it might very well be a blend of powders. But then again that is why they have highly paid people developing ammunition for them.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    SB GD

    It is my understanding that the difference is the actual bullet. The jacket and hollowpoint is specially designed for the SB. You can buy just the bullet to use in reloading. Try a retailer such as Midway.
