    Got some range time in with my new Longshot loads for my sr40. My 180's are running 1150 fps, 155's are at 1300, & my 135's are a hair over 1400.

    Using sub-max loads per Hodgdon online. A little hotter than my Hornady book.

    The Longshot allows me to get higher velocities with less pressure than the hs-6 I was using.

    The 135 grain'ers are using 11gr of Longshot and have a ton of muzzle flash, LOL! It's like a wall of fire,.hahaha.

    Great gun, great fun.
