new powder for the 357 Magnum

Postby Sagebrush » Wed May 15, 2013 10:29 am

After all these years of reloading, I finally picked up a pound of 2400.
I tested some mag loads and one 38 special load in my S&W 686 6" and
was blown away with the test and was amazed with the 38 special loading.
(This is a Lyman & Speer maximum 38 Spl. load ! )
Can't wait to see what other test can do..........
The 158gr XTP load is the "Real Thing" and the recoil made me let one get loose............
All in all a great first test with the new powder, sure wish that I had tried it 40 years ago !!
