Just got this order in from American Reloading and it is weird. It was supposed to be 180g 155g, and 130g JHP Hydra Shok as I recall but what showed up was 180g plus or minus .5g or so 165g and 155g and 135g. Yup weighted each one to sort them out and kind of a pain in the butt if you ask me. I really wanted these for deference rounds anyway so I wouldn't be shooting them except to test and some I have so few of I could shoot them up to get away from that size. Still nice bullet and not sure but I don't think you can buy them anymore except old stock, not sure on that though. Still I am a happy camper with these rounds. Craig

The order was correct as to the sizes after I looked closer to the order. The 135 through me but there is data on this site for it so I am cool. Just ask me!! Craig

Hey Craig I was looking over the Hydra Shok stuff and
yes they were various weights, be sure to separate
them by weights and if any happen to be other
styles...

The data I e-mailed you should be beneficial for your
needs whether you are loading them in 10mm or 40S&W.
Seating the 10mm to 1.2500"
Seating the 40S&W to 1.125"

Good brass and chamber support helps with the
uppermost loads.

Let me know how you make ouT

Craig the e-mail may not have reached you here is the data for you...

Hey Shadow, Thanks for the data. Will try the 135 at 8.5g or so power pistol as I am not looking for high power but want to make sure there is enough power to make the hydra shok function properly. Thanks again for the input. Craig

Ended up loading the 135g at 10. as 10.7 was max and they ran fine. Loaded the 155g at 7.3 for 40 cal as I am running low on 10mm brass Next up is the 160g then the 180g. I also have a lot of 9mm coming in all sizes for hydrashok. We are having fun now!! Craig

Thank You Craig looks like good prices.

I hate to ask or imagine the answer but anyone have
any idea of what the govt spendthrifts consider the
shelf life for ammo before they consider it bad?

(This Bulgarian ammo from 1939 still seems good and
the same with this match stuff from 1960 and this
stuff from the 50's.......)

Not suggesting they should take a lot of chances with
federal LEO's or our military's lives but I do wonder?
Seems as though this older stuff could be used for
more target practice.
Oh well somebody has to pay for it twice and at these
prices I volunteer.

Hey Shadow I got your e-mail with the load date like today or yesterday. All I have left is 8 180g the rest is loaded. I am now waiting for the 9mm but it could take a week or so to get here. This is a laugh for you all. I got tired of going to the local GS to not find the plastic cases that I needed and they always have a lot of the wrong ones so I sent an e-mail to MTM as they are close to me in Dayton. Well they have a on line store and I bought 10 cases for 10mm,41 AE, 45, 40 cal and it will do some other sizes as well. No more local problem. Well that,s it except I do have some 303 Enfield ammo that I think was made for the first world war that is still good and I reload them as well. So there you go REM1875. Craig

OK back from range and all went well. I shot 160g JHP Hydra shok and it was very accurate as were the 180g which I could feel a little more but similar. The loads were all Power Pistol and the 160's were 8.3g and the 180 were 8.5g not to different but the max was 8.7 so there you are. Shot some 9mm just to put it all in perspective so to speak. The Taurus handled all 9'svery well All 10mm's were nice rounds and the Kimber shot all with no problems at all. The Taurus handled the 9 with no problems also. Craig
cut and pasted this message from 10mm forum.Very nice. Craig

Craig
Thanks for the heads up on those pulled bullets. Just
got my order in the mail today,
From what I can see so far they actually look better
than pictured.
Thanks
Joe
