    With the 147/150 try 16.2 grains of Lil Gun for about 1900 fps.

    That is smoking... I load mine with right around 14gr lilgun. It cycles flawlessly in my pistol, and they're just for plinking, so I didn't see a need to push them any faster.

    2.100" I believe, I seat to the cannelure, and I trim my brass on the short side of SAAMI spec. I'll have to check when I'm at the bench later.

    I know most books call for longer, but I'm getting good enough accuracy and they look a lot more normal seated that short, pressure looks good and I'm pulling about 1765fps

    Finally tried those 110gr RN I got from you. They fed like a vegan in a steakhouse... Which is to say they didn't. I could probably load them a bit longer and see if that fixes it, I don't have much use for the remaining 90, so why not I guess...

    I still have 100 left. I keep trying to find somebody that loads like 30 carbine, maybe they would be good for that.

    I used the 110 short jacket and they worked out pretty well but I had them already and I don't think I will buy any more for the 300.

    I had a box of the 110 SJ and they fed fine in blackout, but the lead was pretty mangled by the time it made it into the chamber, and they didn't pull so well once seated... left a nice copper cup in the case while the lead came right out.

    Still haven't gotten around to expirementing with those 110RN bullets yet.

    That is true about the copper cup if you have to try and pull them.
