    180 gr. loads are nerfed (less powder) in order to prevent a dangerous condition of bullet setback (increasing pressures above safe limits) if the round is chambered more than once or otherwise impacted. This is more than likely why the heaviest weight bullets typically recoil lighter, that is unless you are shooting something like Buffalo Bore or Underwood. Buffalo Bore actually has a tech article on their website advising against chambering a round more than once, for this reason and the fact that they load HOT!

    I was just asking a question, as I have read many topics about this subject.

    Don't be sorry, don't worry about it... we all make mistakes sometimes. Honestly though, I don't think any of us can say with certainty what load will be the hardest on your gun... nobody here is about to do any significant testing to prove it. That being said, it very well could be the heaviest load that is the hardest on the gun... would not surprise me one bit.

    Why not ask HK about load versus wear and tear? That should answer the question once and for all.

I would be more concerned about what ammo you shoot than the pistol itself. The 40 S&W caliber, descending from the 10mm, was born as a modern, full pressure, JHP for law enforcement in the 180gr bullet weight. To this day 40cal pistols are designed around the 180gr loading. The lighter and hotter 40 rounds do show more excessive wear and parts breakage with any brand of pistol. A steady diet of proper 180gr 40 will yield near 9mm pistol longevity.. Bill

    My P30 40 has around 3K down the pipe and runs flawless.
    Most folks can't afford enough ammo to shoot out a Hk.
    It's not an issue I'm worried about...

    Do you shoot mostly the 180gr bullet?
    I picked up a case of speer 165 fopr 245, and the recoil is pretty jarring.

    would the 180gr be less?

    or maybe some 150 gr corbon? there are some 135 gr screamers as well. but will lose penetration with the lighter loads, right?

    I do not want to do any damage to my pistol, I depend on it.

    Do your research. There are a few loads available every day in cases that are as cheap as new .40 comes. They are 165's loaded at regular 180 velocities. Before that I'd really suggest a 9mm though. Just don't shoot any +P or God forbid +P+. They may not make it to 100K rounds.

    I have .40 guns in HK, CZ, Beretta, and Sig. The 165g has a much harsher felt recoil than the 180g in all my guns.
