    peaches are a bit sketchy up here. I have one tree that puts out pretty good. the other two don't do so well. Same with pears. My neighbor has a tree that puts out great. my two are duds. Apple trees everywhere though and cherries do well.

    Back in the '70s I had a 4 5/8" barreled Ruger 357/9mm. I did like it and found, just as Outpost75 mentions, that with .357 sized bullets accuracy was on par with 38/357 loads. I found milsurp 9mm was moa of grouse out to 25+ yards and the bullets...

    I have never tried Elmer's load of 22 grains because the 21 grain load is very hot! kingri You might want to check that powder weight and make sure it is 21 gr. That is really not a "hot" load under a 250 gr cast.

    I recall probably the same publication. I wondered why Alliant would have changed 2400 given it's success. As I recall the writer was loading 240 gr jacketed bullets instead of cast and made his "assessment" based on the 21 gr max load for 240 gr...
