    22 gr. of 2400 have always given me sticky extraction, or at least somewhat difficult extraction in all of the Rugers that I've fired them from, both SA and DA. 21 gr. does well. I dunno what difference one grain makes, but that has been my experience. It didn't damage anything, and I still have years old brass that shoots just fine, but that one grain made it easier to get my brass out.

    all that's being said is some guns shoot faster than others.no surprise .that's why you tailor loads to each gun.

    Today's 22grs. 2400 is too heavy for a Smiff and Wesson, I only use 21 grs. in my Ruger or Freedom Arms, when I play with near max. loads in the .44 I much prefer using H110, it keeps me out of trouble.
