I have a beautiful little girl who although 12 years old isint real strong. She what's to shoot in 3 gun matches but only shoots her .22 pistol as of now. She wants to try my .40 229 but I think it is a bit much. I have read significant information about downloading 9mm specifically for shooting steel. I wanted to ask the group if anyone has done similar downloading with a .40? If so was there a significant drop in felt recoil?
I have some 140 grain and 180 grain bullets for the .40 just need to figure out how light I can load them.
Thanks for for any info you have.
