    I thought I'd work up some 10mm auto loads using Sierra Sports Master JHP bullets (155gr). I'll be using Hodgdon Titegroup and WLP primers. Hodgdon has limited load data available (please don't post their link... I've been there), and other resources I have appear to be too old to list a usable variety of Titegroup loads.

    Yes, I'll get an up to date manual.

    That said, would some of you that have manuals chime in with some load data that I can compare to? If you've tried this combination of bullets, primers, and powder; what data do you have to share?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I had an exchange at another site that pretty much took care of this one. For anyone loading 10mm, the bottom line is that Titegroup is typically not recommended for 10mm since it is such a fast burning powder. If you want recommendations, I recieved several from the other site that I'm happy to share (let me know).

    That said, the low-end load would be 5.6gr, and the upper limit would be 7.2 gr for a 155gr JHP in a 10mm. Functionally, the low end really seems to be 6.4 gr if you want your gun to cycle. :thumbup:

    6.8gr to 6.9gr was recommended.

    Happy loading!

    I put as much Trail Boss as will fit under the bullet without compressing it, I think like 1.05cc of it, and a 140gr TCFP cast bullet. Cycles my Witness with the standard 14lb spring just fine. No lead in the barrel, I'm happy.
