    Works great in my Rossi 92 .357 mag and Ruger Blackhawks .357 mag.

    Definitely a warm and fast powder.

    Works great in my Puma 454 with a case full of lilgun and the Lee 300gr and doesn't over heat. I don't shoot it like a 10/22. 300grs (actually 317) at 1980fps from the light weight Puma is not what I want to shoot at ten rounds in 20 seconds. Guess I'm just a wimp.

    I’ve used it in a Winchester M94, and Ruger 77/.357.
    I used 17.8gr with Federal SPM primers, with a Remington 158gr JSP.

    Winchester M94 w20”bbl ran 2,040fps @15’
    Ruger 77/357 w18.5” bbl ran 1,960.
    Hodgdons max is 18.0gr. Going higher actually decreases velocity and dramatically increases heat and erosion. Reducing charge also reduced velocity.
    Lil’Gun isn’t always a good fit for possible uses, but definitely has its place.
    158-200gr bullets in .357mag in rifles is one of them.
    For my revolvers, I use #2400...
