357 Maxie

Hellacatcher,
I reamed my mag to a max, the best thing I did to it. :-D
I think it shoots better with 357 Mag and 38 spl than before reaming!
Hope you have good luck, Marv.

I tell ya this rain has put my shooting back a lot too. I have been reading about this kind of 357 topic for awhile. Sounds pretty cool, and a fun load to boot. Keep us informed on how she shoots.

26 grains of AA1680 under a Hornady 180 XTP. Remington makes a SJHP 180 grainer that works really well and at least in wet news paper, performs equally to the XTP. This load makes 2060 fps from my Handi.
