HODGDON TITEGROUP

Post by Allen Barnett on 6/27/2016, 4:49 pm

Does anyone have a magical mystical voodoo load using Hodgdon Titegroup and 185 grain bullets?  I haven't seen much talk about any of the Hodgdon powders but before I rush out and buy something different I thought I would see what experience(s) anybody might have.  Most of my reloading experience is with rifle and I am a huge fan of Hodgdon powders.

Wes:
Thanks for sharing.  Your suggestions are right about where I was thinking things should be.  Loaded up 50 rounds with 4.5 grains under a Sierra 185 grain Tournament Master for some "bench" testing.  I'll be back with results but probably not for several days, lets see golf tomorrow, plummer on Wednesday, maybe I can get back to the range on Thursday.

Wes,  You mentioned H&G 130 lead bullets. What seat die do you use for that bullet? -- - I use a Dillon 550B. 
Thanks, Russ

Well I wish I could figure out how to post pictures as they are worth a thousand words.  Anyhow my testing resulted in a 10 shot grouping that holds x-ring at 50 yards over sandbags.  If only I could shoot that good offhand.

   Federal Large Pistol Match Primer
   COL of 1.151
   Crimp of .4715
   My wad gun is setup with a 12 lb recoil spring and 15 lb mainspring with
