I want to load 100 grain Xtreme plated bullets with Red Dot . Finding data is tough. Anyone have any experience with this combination. I would like to load some test loads. 10 rounds each powder weight in .2 grain increments. What ya'll think?

Thanks Cmax :drool:

    Lipstick on a pig. Use FMJ to get as much penetration as possible.

    Only data I have for the .380 and Red Dot is from the Lyman #47 reloading manual. None of the bullets match the profile of the bullet from X-Treme. I don't feel comfortable posting the data from the manual, as seating depth and OAL for that small capacity case can cause bad stuff to happen with a bullet that isn't included in the data.

    My idea of a warning shot is when the 2nd bad guy watches his 1st buddy go down....
