    Jim,

    What size load and speed would you like to try to load with it? It is a low pressure powder and less felt recoil on bigger loads.

    I use 24.5 grains of 7625 with 1 and 1/16 ounce of shot in an Activ hull, cheddite primer, and a WAA12L copy wad for a soft recoil load that chronos at 1254 fps.

    I use it for my 1 1/8 oz cap loads @ 1250+ fps. Does not move my PFS any more than a regular light target load.

    PB is another old name with many of the same attributes, including high price.

    I load it for 1 1/4 ounce backup loads for protections and love it. It shoots very soft and very consistant, Tim

    Try 6.0 grains of SR7625 and a 240 grain SWC of hard lead in a 44 mag. It's a great paper puncher and bowling pin load.

    Thanks everybody. I inherited 4# and have manuals and believe them BUT I have found it's better to ask you guys for real time experience. I load 44 mags and 20 and 28's. Looks like I have a good deal here!!
    Thanks

    It's a great powder for it's intended uses. I have used it in the pasy for many handgun loads and for mostly 1 1/4 ounce Pheasant loads in the 12ga. If you go to Hodgdon's website, they have data listed for it. You can also get there by going to www.imrpowder.com I would suggest using current data, rather than usung data that was published decades ago. Try the links below.
