Ramshot Enforcer vs Alliant 2400 for 357 and 454???

I load primarily for 357 and 454. (Ruger GP100 and Taurus Raging Bull)

Which is cleaner??? Up until now, I have been using A2400 almost exclusively. I use W296 for game loads in the 454.

How does Enforcer or Trueblue compare to 2400 as far as performance and consistency???

I know Ramshot TAC is WONDERFUL for .223 heavy loads.

Ramshot Enforcer = AA#9 = H108 = WC820

Neither Enforcerr nor 2400 are as good for max power as H110[W296] or LIL'GUN.

But Enforcer and 2400 are better at reduced loads.

Ramshot Enforcer has been a big disappointment for me. Graf's had it on sale very cheap about 2 years ago, and I bought 16 lb, at about 2/3 the price of Accurate #9 which has been my staple for 357 and 44 Magnums.

I have not been able to approach the velocities I was getting with #9, before the pressure signs started to appear.
Enforcer published load data has been pure fiction, and they pulled it from their Web site.

As Clark says, Enforcer is good and economical at reduced velocities. But, it is not anywhere near equal #9 or other Magnum powders.
Nor is it particularly clean. If you want clean - W296 is the way to go.
