Well I took out my first reloads today...did two different loads for the 9mm & two different loads for the .40. Was surprised how much lower the velocity actually was for the powder levels worked up. Had no problems with the 9mm other than the casing not throwing as far when shooting...barely went 1-3 feet from the gun....but the shooting was very accurate. When I did the .40, my lowest load (about the 7th shot) I had a squib!!! Don't know what happened, I checked each load when I loaded them. Thought for sure the barrel was ruined. When I got home I took a wooden dowel and was able to pop the bullet out of the barrel. The one thing I did notice was on all the cases was excessive powder on the outsides of the casings...never seen that on factory loads. All of my upper loads shot just find...will keep working up loads.
