Been reloading for a while, but just to be different I ordered some 180 lead RN from Missouri Bullet.
I didn't realize it would be this tough to find a recipe. :(

I have Titegroup, Universal & AA5. Does anyone have a recipe or a source to a recipe for this?

thanks!

I have been loadind the 180gr bullets in the .357 mag for years.You don't mention what gun you are loading for but for revolvers and contenders I have found AA#9 and 2400 to give the best results for power and accuracy.You can start at 10.0grs for both aand use magnum primers as both powders can be hard to burn completely.

I have used 13.0 grains of H110 with the Remington 180 JHP. It seems to be a good load that runs around 1150fps out of my 4" GP100.

I don't have any experience with the powders you listed.

This is from the Accurate Arms #2 manual. At the time (prior to the sale of Accurate Arms to Western Powders), AA apparently decided to return to the higher pressure loads allowed under the 45,000 CUP standard for the 357 magnum.

In the #1 loading manual 11.7 grains of AA9 powder was the maximum listed for a 180 grain jacketed load under the 35,000 psi standard.

Compare that with 11.7 grains of AA9 powder listed as the starting load for the same bullet in the #2 manual under the 45,000 CUP standard.

Verry interesting!
