    That is a VERY light weight boolit for what you want to use it for. It is likely you won't find published data for that boolit weight because it is likely not recommended. Not with H110 anyway.. H110 shines with heavy boolits, not so much with...

    When I first stated shooting bullseye I was given 5K of primed steel cases. Shot them out of one 1911. Never noticed any ill effects on the extractor or ejector. It has many times that amount of standard brass cases since and no ill effects.

    It also depends on what you size your boolits to. For a .40 S&W, if you size to .400" you shouldn't have any issues passing the plunk test with the barrel removed from the gun. If you size larger than .400" and your rounds won't go into the...
