The powders i did narrow it down to were. Power Pistol, Longshot, Blue Dot and Unique in that order. Since the local shop didnt have any power pistol i bought Longshot.

My experience with my 40 is it likes top of the chart velocity loads with a 165 gr jhp. I use strictly Titegroup, Unique, and Power Pistol. I have a personal hatred of Blue Dot!

To reduce the recoil that naturally comes in the 40, you have to reduce the load to ridiculous levels. I've had three 40's (all glocks) and they all had the same temperment.
