.40 Smith & Wesson / .40 S&W (Handgun) (Speer Reloading Manual #14)

.40 Smith & Wesson / .40 S&W (Handgun) (Speer Reloading Manual #14)
Warning! Notes: max. case length: 0.850"; trim-to length: 0.840"; max cart. OAL: 1.135"; RCBS shell holder: #27; cart. case: Speer; primer: CCI 500; test firearm: Smith & Wesson M4006; barrel length: 4"; IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: These loads were developed and tested for safe use in HANDGUNS. Not all loads may be suitable for use in a carbine or rifle chambered for this cartridge. If loading for a carbine or rifle, choose from among the loads developing the highest handgun velocities and load just a few rounds. Thoroughly test this small sample in your firearm in slow-fire mode, insuring that you achieve proper feeding and ejection. Be certain that all bullets exit the barrel; watching the target for each bullet strike is the best way to know that the load produces sufficient gas volume for a longer barrel. Use maximum loads with CAUTION.
Be Alert: Publisher cannot be responsible for errors in published load data.
