40 loads and Titegroup

Reloaded a bunch of test rounds to try out in my H&K P2000 and my dads SA XD 40. Both seemed to like the 180gr xtreme bullets over 4.8 gr of Bullseye the most out of the powder ranges we used and 231.

Those were pretty good rounds and I have another 400 loaded up ready to go now. however we also tried some 200gr Hush subsonic rounds and really liked those.

So I have picked up 200gr bullets to start loading those. Thinking about using titegroup though as it is covered in manuals a bit more than the Bullseye is.

Anyone else use Titegroup for their loads? I have read that it is close to the same burn rate as Bullseye, is that correct?

I use titegroup for practice/smaller matches and N320 for large matches. I run 180 gr blue bullets loaded to 1.180".

Titegroup is a notoriously hot burning powder when loaded to major power factor. There have been claims of fiber optic rods melting out of the front sight. Solution: something you should already be doing-keep fiber in your range bag.

It is dirty. Solution: clean your firearm.

It is also readily available and affordable. Buy it up and shoot away, I say.

Titegroup at Academy

Bought four 1 lb container of TG at Academy Friday. Priced at $21 a lb. Wish they carried it in 4 lb containers. Use it in 9 & 40.

I like TiteGroup for practice 'cuz it's an inexpensive load, yet works. I tend to run 180 gr. in both my .40's and my 10's (LFP)

Well last week when I went down to buy titegroup, they did not have any in stock. But the surprise of all time was that they had an 8lb keg of Bullseye for $160. Could not pass up that situation.

So I loaded up the 200gr rounds over 4.1 and 4.3 grains of Bullseye and set an OAL of 1.13. Do not have a Chrono but both my father and I tried 10 rounds of each load through our guns and both liked the 4.1 grains of powder. Was a nice load with a decent recoil that did not feel 40 snappy, but felt more like shooting the same load from my 1911. I think this is going to work out well.

It sounds like you have found your destiny in Alliant Bullseye powder.
