Hello to all, & Happy Thanksgiving! A while back I bought some of Marshall's 280GR WFNGC Sledghammers & he gave me a recommendation with this powder, but I don't remember the min-max charge weights. I'm thinkin he went up to 23 or 24grs max. Has anyone used this powder/bullet combo? I could use a little feedback. BTW, I'm using a Puma '92-20", and an Armi San Marco '92-24". Thanx for the help. jjd45

My favorite carbine load is my 300 gr. Hornady XTP magnum with 21 gr. Reloader7 or the 250 gr. XTP with 23 gr. Reloader7. I use CCI large rifle primers and they really reach out with some authority, but barely kick in my 6 lb Buffalo Classic carbine with a 20" barrel. I'm using them on whitetails this year. They only thing I do special is use an orange sharpie and color the primer and a ring on the bullet to make sure I don't load them into my blackhawk and I keep them in a separate orange bullet case. It doesn't hurt the blackhawk, but the 5.5" barrel doesn't allow the powder to all burn, so you get a good flash. ;)
