Neither get to shoot much but I want them to have ammo available when they do. I also want to have confidence in its safety

    I can use the standard manuals, of which I have several, but will have to extrapolate since no one specifies a 135 grain bullet. Everyone who has the mold seems to love it but no one suggests a load.
    alamogunr,

    I do load Somchem's MS200 and S121 which is very similar to your Bullseye and RedDot powders...according to my burn rate chart, so just check that before you proceed.
    So what I am loading with this boolit, that is the LG version and powder coated, that I have been using for a few years now, is 3.7gr MS200 with the COAL at 1.112. This gives my 980 f/sec which is not a hot load at all but a very nice plinking load and it also makes the IPSC power factor easily. This is fired from my CZ Shadow 1 of which the barrel length is about 4 inches if I am not mistaken.
    Unfortunately due to the COVID19 lock down here I have not been able to do load development on the NLG version, but I suppose the velocity should not be drastically different from what I have been reading here on the forum?
    So, that is my load and is not what I say you should load with your powders, but maybe it can be of some use for you when you try to work out what you should load with your powders.

    Hope I could be of some assistance to you, and keep us posted on your progress.

    I do have a chronograph so I can start low with those powders and work up. Even though I don't have the exact gun that the grandsons have(S&W Shield) I can make sure that I don't even approach max loads. This is an incentive to get started on PC also. I'll probably try Red Dot first since I have both Red Dot and Promo, just have to make sure that I don't forget which one I'm using at the time. I like that Red Dot is somewhat bulky(?).

    Won't be able to do much testing for awhile due to "social distancing". Been reading up on why us old folks are more at risk. We fall into risky categories for several reasons. Not the least of which is age.

    You might try sport pistol. I am using it with this mold and shoots better then I do. It is suppose to be made not to react with the PC. There is load data for it as well using coated bullets.

    I am loading the NLG to where the case mouth is even with the rim on the bullet, OAL 1.112. I am running 3.4gr Titegroup getting 940fps out of the Sig P365XL, or 1003fps out of the Walther PPQ Q5 Match.
