    Western powders new reloading book

    Just got my new reloading book in the mail today from Western powders. Main reason that i ordered it is because i knew they have data for the .458 SOCOM. They had a article in it that i thought to post here, as their test gun was a uzi. Very interesting read. The most interesting thing is what their energy was from a 115gr +p through the Uzi.
    Am only allowed 3 pictures per post so next post will be more pictures.
    Btw, i am not affiliated with western powders, but i do like their products that i have used. Fun fact, Montana (where western powders is based out of) has special tax advanteges for manufacturers of reloading componants and loaded cartridges.
    This is a good reloading book in my opinion.

    Very interesting. Thanks for posting. I'm going to research AA#7. I think it's in the same burning range as Power Pistol & Long shot.

    According to the burn rate chart in the back of western powders book, AA#7 is the same burn rate as blue dot. Power pistol is smack between AA#7 and AA#5. According to this chart Longshot is a smidge faster than AA#7.

    They have a load data .pdf on their website.

    I have some #7 i got cheap like 8 bux a pound cheap last spring.
    Yet to try it though since i have a lot of bullseye and unique for the pistol rounds.

    I mostly save the unique to run in kramer's guns lol J/k
