.40/10mm Auto reloaders!

Looks like a pretty decent deal on Speer bullets 180g TMJ.
Buy both boxes ($80 for 800 pcs.) and shipped free to your door:

Heck, I'll even offer my time and equipment to assist you with a hundred of so rounds (that's about all of the .40 S&W brass I have on hand; maybe 75 pieces of 10mm Auto).

North Stonington, per profile.
You'll need primers, too. I'm fresh out of small pistols.

I'm probably too far away and you'd likely do just as well to buy the .40 dies and do it at your bench.
You're still welcome to come and do some load development and test-firing, but I don't see where you really need me. Also, I no longer have a chronograph, but bring yours, as you'll have an undistracted place to clock them.

Regarding, .40 S&W, I know I had received some 135g LRNFP bullets (really for the .38-40 WCF) in a swap and loaded them into .40 S&W. They ran fine in my neighbor's SD40VE.

Ok. Ill give it a go. Already have the dies, if you were closer I would have welcomed the input and knowledge I could have gained. Maybe someday I take a ride just for fun.

Thanks,
Bryan

I don't know what weight bullets you will be using nor what PF you are attempting to achieve, but if your loads don't function your firearm, it won't matter much. I tend to test any recipe for an autoloader with both a full and one round magazine (empty mag once the round is chambered). I figure any load that cycles with a full magazine and goes into slide lock with a one round magazine is full-functioning. After that, just calculate PF to see if it meets that criteria. Obviously, you won't overcharge your round simply because it cycles okay.
There isn't any significant difference, if any, in the reloading process of the .40 S&W and the 9x19mm, so you should be good to go.
Have fun and good luck.
