Hodgon Triple 7 Loads for Steel Framed .36

Bought a pound of Triple 7 FFFg today locally. The chart shows 15 and 20 grains for a .375" round ball at 662 and 832 fps respectively.

Sound about right?????

yep. That would be equivalent to an 18 or 24 grain fffg BP loading. Just don't compress it too much. Hodgdon loading data also calls for a wonder wad so the powder doesn't get too much compression
