Well I fired a whole gamut of 116gr loads starting at 3.0grs to 3.8grs of Unique and ended up with a I stopped at 3.8grs with a 895FS load. So I thought about it and loaded another load for 3.9grs and chronographed them and ended with the results of:
The brass remains in excellent shape, no primer moving or flattening, no primer strike curling or brass stretching. My question is this, I have done a lot of rifle cartridge reloading in my life but hardly any pistol cartridges these aboven rifle brass inspections would tell me I could keep going with my reloads but do they mean the same for pistol reloads?
I would like to try 4.0grs of Unique before I stopped but I want to make sure pistol and rifle brass signs remain same. Any advice or knowledge would be appreciated.
