What powder are you using to get those speeds with the Liberty 50s? I picked up a bunch for experimenting with really light PCC competition loads, but I wouldn't mind goosing them a little.
Thanks.
Those are actually a little anemic speed wise on them, (the factory loads are hotter) but I was using XP100. Which is similar to autocomp. True autocomp supposedly gives you higher velocity as well

I tend to stay away from powders with scarce data (XP100). I would have thought with such a light pill you'd run out of case capacity with such slow powders. I'm guessing that your loads are basically filled just about to the top and compressed? The seating depth of that bullet is so shallow it wouldn't require much pressure, unless the powder is ball, but it also presents the possible problem of creep. I have silhouette, and some faster powders, so I guess that I'll be experimenting. I'll probably start with Power Pistol and Silhouette and go from there.
How is accuracy out of a carbine? I ask because the pull marks are pretty obvious, and the bullet is so light.
For laughs I might just try it in the 350.
Thanks a lot.

With xp100 it shoots great in the pistol and carbine. Case capacity isn’t max, and pressure isn’t an issue.I I have debated going higher, but with deer season around the corner, I have bigger priorities. I’ll be posting Barnes 44 magnum results soon as well. And I am debating about trying a 115gr Barnes Tac-XPD in the 350L to see what happens.

Wish I could give you a hand with the 350L stuff, I'm really interested in all of the probable light bullet loadings. Due to the AR feeding concerns I'm trying all varieties of bullets in order to get something reliable. Your results have been valuable to me, especially the HST and God Dot info. Can't find Gold Dots anywhere at the moment and could only snag 147 HSTs. Were the HSTs that you used the newer 2 crimp band type?
Thanks for all the info.

Oh gotcha. Mine were the 2 crimp groove style. The very first ones I worked up in my 350L AR15 were the first Gen hst. Then as that supply dried up I switched over to the Gen 2
