I keep stepping up a load I am working to be best preformed out of sp101 spurless snub. I am up to 7.8 of aa#2 and have ten loaded also of 7.9 and 8.0. At this point still very soft shooting and accurate but have a feeling that 8.0 and up still under published data but if anyone else has had the same load and how it shot out of a snubnose preferably a sp101. The bullet is a xtp 125 gr so need what velocities for proper expansion? Also using cci spp 500. I look on line but not seeing much with this load but believe I can get something like my 9mm load with a happy medium accuracy and felt recoil with this fast burning powder to maximize velocity. From my limited reloading experience of just a few years now but have read a couple manuals and allot of data on the rounds I reload but never seem to be in line with much of the same thinking as other reloaders I know because mostly I like shooting lighter fast burning projectiles. But still not sure if this is correct the correct thinking with a snubnose. cant wait till I can afford a crono when tax returns come but want to have more ammo ready when it comes out of box.
