I'm sending IC these back to test them out and compare the velocities directly from the same gun. This may shed some light on the exact powder used... :P
Two will have 7.4 grains of BE-86 one new 200 gr. Gold Dot #54000 and one old 200 gr. Gold Dot #53883
Two will have 7.4 grains of Power Pistol one new 200 gr. Gold Dot #54000 and one old 200 gr. Gold Dot #53883
Also one will have 7.4 grains of the original ? powder ? with the old 200 gr. Gold Dot #53883

It may be BE-86 powder but we will see how they stack up! 8)

Hey Shadow
Great post.. Didn't know Speer offered a 200gr loading.  Would like to see this shot over a chrono to see what it really does...

A little trick I've used over the years when I run into a really stubborn bullet.. Is to put the round under a seating die and actually 'seat' the bullet in further just a little, thereby breaking up the adhesive/sealant.  Usually doing this does not damage the bullet in any way, unless the seating plug does not fit the bullet well.
One time while pulling a Rem .40 Golden Sabre, the bullet core popped out and the jacket stayed behind, glued to the case.
 Sometimes you think the bullet is on top of so much powder that you can't push it in any more, but eventually it breaks loose.

Thanks RDub01...

Here are the numbers Intercoler posted in the ammo page;

EAA Limited Pro 4.75" barrel 1068, 1072, 1086. Average 1075.33 FPS/ 514 LBS
EAA Super Match 6" barrel 1128, 1100, 1096. Average 1108 FPS/ 545 LBS

Not real barn burners, but should work pretty well.

FMS1890, also chronographed some of the Speer 200 GDHP loads this weekend:

Delta Elite 5" barrel - 1074, 1086, 1066, 1069, 1060 - 1071 fps av.
Glock 20 4.6" barrel - 1041, 1025, 1034, 1017, 1003 -1024 fps av.

I would have preferred more velocity.

When the weather permits Intercooler has the ones listed above I sent back to play with and we can get a better feel for them after that testing,
I hope that Speer makes the new 200 gr. Gold Dot #54000 available as components someday!  8)

Thanks Shadow..  Thats about what I would expect from that powder charge.

The only 200gr load I tested was the HSM..  7.7-7.8grs (most likely Longshot) at 1076fps out of a 4.6" Glock. 

Yes, a full power 200gr GoldDot  would be an interesting round for sure!
