I have "Speer 13" 1998 that shows 357Sig 125 gr GD 1.135" 14.6 gr AA#9.

Quickload thinks that is 66kpsi and 111% load density.
AA#9 is a ball powder with a high bulk modulus and cannot be compressed that much.

Ramshot Enforcer appears to have some similarities with AA#9:
1) Looks like the same size little balls
2) Looks like the same black color
3) Smells the same
4) It only takes 3.6% more AA#9 to reach the threshold of loose primer pocket in a Tokarev, at one zillion psi according to QL.

So to me, they are the same within the range of what I expect from a canister powder from AA.

If I plug 14.6 gr Enforcer into Quickload, I get 46k psi
I Quickload is right in it's library about Enforcer and wrong about AA#9, then I should reduce that charge by 3.6% to get a better prediction of pressure.

That would be 38.8 kpsi.

357 Sig is SAAMI registered at 40kpsi.
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?
