Question on alliant BE-86 for 10mm
« on: December 27, 2017, 03:13:55 PM »
Question on  alliant BE-86 for 10mm, according to Alliant’s data on BE-86, they call for 8.2gr for a 180gr JHP. What are you Folks findings for a nice accurate load for a 180?  Also, for alloy in a 180gr, what charge weight are you liking?
Thanks in advance

I've been up to 9.3g with extreme 180 plated bullets in a stock Glock 20, and it is a lively load.  No smile or anything.  I'd encourage you to step up your own loads.

Yes even the Sig pull down data revealed that the BE-86 could be pushed above book data.

Question for you Shadow. I have looked high and low for BE-86 load data when using 180gr Missouri Bullet Company alloy (Brinell 18 hardness - non coated) According to Alliant’s load data, they are recommending 8.2grains of BE-86 under a 180gr JHP, but am unable to find anything for cast. These will be used in a G20 - gen 4 with a KKM barrel. Any ideas on a min-max for theses would we very helpful
Thanks again

Ken

Ken, Geeman 's testing showed good for his gun as posted.
You might be able to get real close to his number.
I'd start at 8.8 grains based on them.
