What have you been loading? I just loaded some range rounds. 200 rounds for the M1A’s with an 175 grain SMK on 4064 in Lake City cases.
Also loaded up a couple hundred .300 blackout plinking rounds, 220 grain Barry’s plated on CFE BLK on Lake City cases.

I've got 3 batches of 18 rounds each of heavy .357 loads ready for Wednesday.
All batches are Sierra Tournament Master 180 gr. FPJ, on top of VV N110.
Batch 1 should clock 1200
Batch 2 should clock 1250
Batch 3 should clock 1300

Depending on the outcome, next batches should touch the 1360-1380 point. VV says 1480 out of a 7", we'll see what a 4.2" produces.
These will be outback rounds, designed for tough, stubborn wildlife encounters, or the occasional chemically influenced SOB.

I keep buying and reloading Brazos 115gr round nose coated bullets.
They make very good range ammo with 4.0gr to 4.4gr of Titegroup.
Also the least expensive combo I have found to reload.

I was using CFE for my pistol loads but couldn't get it a couple weeks ago so I got a jug of Titegroup. I loaded up 50 rounds each of test loads for 9 mm with 115 grain bullets and .45 ACP with both 185's and 230's. I used the recommended start loads and my chrono tells me the 9 mm's are fine but both .45's could bump up a little. Everything fired and cycled well though.
