I have experimented with a lot of bullets and a lot of powders.
I have completely ignored load books and worked up from scratch.
I have been working with 100 year old Colt Police Positive 32 S&W long revolvers, but my favorite loads should work just as well in a 327Fed.
They do tend to blow out the forcing cone on antiques. If the barrel is immediately pulled, welded, and re cut to the thicker, the loads then work long term. If the revolver is shot with a distorted forcing cone, the timing can get screwed up.

The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
