    i loaded up 5 rounds of 158 lwc .357 mag.
    8.8 gr.9mmNATO POWDER similar to accurate #7
    i didnt chrono them.
    i walked across the street and put 1 round at a time in my ruger sp101 .357
    they all felt/sounded the same.
    this is an example of one of the fired cases.
    they all look the same.

    they are flattened a little bit with no cratering.

    i have never used a powder this fine.
    it meters better than any i have ever used.

    it meters EXACTLY in my duo-measure

    theres still hope!
    my LEE manual says that i need to use the same amount of powder in a lrn 45acp load.
    if i die that means you get the raging bull.
    but only on one condition.
    since that means you would have 2 identical 454casulls you would hafta promise to get a double gunbelt and tote em like old west style!

    that would be cool as hell!

    But, billy, Midas lives in AR, a non-open-carry state. He wouldn't be allowed to tote 'em like that.

    ...myself, in WA, though.... :D

    Okay, I take it back, it appears it's murky grey-area for Arkansas: Arkansas - Stories From The States - OpenCarry.org - Discussion Forum

    Some could say it's legal, some could say it's illegal, depending on how you interpret the state laws.

    Here in Washington State, it's 100%, though you may encounter quite a few officers of the law that aren't up to snuff with their knowledge of the law. That's why we're so gung-ho about pushing PD's to issue training bulletins on the subject so that we can OC in peace.

    Personally, I OC a GLOCK 27 in a Blackhawk Serpa CQC carbon-fiber holster darn near everywhere, when I'm able.

    As long as you don't go into Wal Mart, or the mall, most places won't hassle you too much if you open carry. I have been known to carry a little Taurus 605 in plain sight, seems to deter the thug wannabes.

    like i tell everybody.
    if you feel threatened.
    two warning shots to the head!
    practice those headshots boys!
    aim small
    miss small
    make like you are shootin for groups on that perps melon.

    once you get used to puttin em into something the size of a nickle quickly .........

  20. At my concealed carry class the instructor insisted that our pistols be concealed at all times.
    I wish i knew for sure we could carry open.
    it would be more comfortable.
