Thanks Shadow..
I just ordered some 3N38, N-105, and Silhouette, so I'll do a workup with those as weather permits..
That should cover about everything useful in 10mm.. :)

Oh that is beautiful! If you don't mind I may have to borrow your approach on building up my hand loads!

Magnificently done!

Thank you.

Great write up! Lots of work went into that!
I will add that to my data base.
I love your lay out with the data.
These days, I have settled on Power Pistol only for ease in reloading.
There are so many fine powders though for the 10.

Thanks!

Nice Post. I really was expecting more with the blue dot too. I would of expected Longshot then blue dot then AA9 in that order for velocity figures.

I was surprised at the resuts with Blue Dot as well. Recently however, I've come to appreciate the difference in velocity and performance one primer can have over another, especially the difference between Rem 2 and WLP with Blue Dot.

It will be cold around here for another six months, so when it warms up again I would like to redo some of these using different primers and another lot of Blue Dot.

I'm interested in Silhouette for reputed low flash qualities even if it's not producing the most powerful loads, so while you're testing, please notice and remark on how it compares for flash in low light conditions. Thanks! :)

Hi
My Silhouette resuts here;

http://www.glocktalk...ad.php?t=179345

Silhouette is a low flash powder.
8.4grs gave me the same velocity as the Armscor 180gr FMJ load I tested. The Armscor load had 6.2grs of something.

RDub01, would you say that RamShot Silhouette is the same as Winchester Action Pistol as others have said? Do you have both to compare?

Corrected...I put Auto Comp but it is Action Pistol that is said to be the same as Silhouette...

No, I don't have any AutoComp.. I've seen it at Sportman's. But Silhouette is the same thing as Winchester's 'Winchester Action Pistol' or WAP.

Edtited; Mistaken

The only source I could find for AutoComp data is the IMR website, which lists 7.7grs as max for a 180gr bullet.

The IMR website lists 8.4grs of WAP as max with a 180gr bullet. Ramshot lists 8.4grs as max with Silhouette..

So, if IMR lists 7.7 for one and 8.4 for the other.. It would seem there is some difference.

However... In Hornady's #8 manual, their .40 S&W data for 155gr lists Silhouette and AutoComp the same..

Until someone actually tests AutoComp it's still an unkown..

Yes I corrected my previous post as well... :thumb: The RamShot Sillhouette was said to be the same as Winchester Action Pistol (Not much data listed before they stopped making it) it seems it was picked up by RamShot...

Still studing several things on this end as well!

Even though I don't have a 10mm, and am not reloading right now, I can appreciate the effort and attention to detail that went into your work-up.

VERY well done, Sir !

As I also reload, I could fully appreciate all the work and time that went into your study... well done!!

 

From an economical viewpoint, I've been using #7 for all my semi-auto's... 9 and 10mm, 40S&W and 45acp. Bought an 8lb keg that's been giving me LOTS of time at the range flinging Berry's 180's...

Are the numbers next to the factory loads the weight of powder from a pulled down load? Thanks for sharing all the work.

Yes Bb those are pull down weights.

 

I posted these before I realized there are sites that dedicate to doing pull downs.
