AAC#9 is by far the best powder that I've ever used in .357 and .44 Magnums. I use 125 GR bullets in .357 and both 180 and 240 GR in .44.

I've never had a problem with metering in my powder measures, but it is fine grained, and an older well used measure may cause difficulty with it.

I've had best results with standard pistol primers (NOT magnum) and maximum loads. If you wish to load less than max, try AAC#7.

Using standard primers requires just a bit more powder to achieve the same velocity, buy in my experience the loads are more consistent and more accurate.

Griz,

If you had hgh extreme spreads with light bullets in .357, you might want to try again with standard primers. Can't promise it will work for you, but it worked for me.
