Anayone here ever worked up any .357 Max loads using 180 grain bullets and Accurate #9? For some reason I can't find any, but plenty of H110 loads despite the fact that AA#9 is not that much faster then H110 (according to the VV info anyway).

correction!!! none of the loads i have are loaded with pistol powder!
everything in the Accurate Arms 1994 edition is loaded with rifle powder, nothing is loaded with pistol powder! the powders AA recomends are
1680, 2015BR, and 2230. still it sounds like a good light rifle load.

I still have 2 pounds of WW-680 that I use with 180 grain in the 357 max. I got close to 2,000 fps out of a 14 inch TC. I use H-110 for the 140 and 158 grain bullets.
