Loading the stuff I found I like the bulky case filling flakes, in the future I might try it out for .38 Special also (the Sierra Manual has charge weights for it with 158 gr. bullets). I also like that the charges are lower in weight. With luck I'll be able to out tomorrow. I prefer testing when the air temperature is 40 and rising.
    Just made my first 12 today for testing tomorrow. I did a lot of research on H110 online and used Hodgdon data and settled on 16g even to start, 1.58 OAL, 158g Hornady XTP.

    I'm liking 357 Magnum so far, it reminds me of 300 Blackout, lots you can do with it as a reloader.

    That's one of my two favorite loads for the .357 Henry rifle. MV of 1700 fps and very accurate. I haven't shot it in the revolvers but I expect it is stout.
