I had some 165 grain lead bullets given to me for 40 S&W and would like to load some up only problem I can not find any data on loading lead in the 40. Anyone load lead in there 40 or have a manual that shows lead bullets for the 40?

Yup, Lyman manuals have a bunch of data since they make molds for .40 boolits. Their 3rd edition Pistol and Revolver reloading manual has three cast bullet options and loads for 40 SW.

Clean your barrel well after shooting lead bullets before going back to jacketed bullet. The residual lead buildup will cause high pressures when shooting jacketed bullets.

Right now I have some unique but need to make another trip to the toy store, do you have an idea for a better powder?
