#7 Alternative?

265 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  AKM
I've been hearing bad things about AA #7, and I just ran out of it, anyway; what's a good alternative for loading mid-range 10mm loads? I don't need to get 1400fs with 155's; 1200 is fine. 3N37 looks pretty good; any other suggestions? What about for full power (200/1200, 180/1300)?

Sorry, but I haven't heard anything bad about it and tend to use it or #5 all the time in my 10mm loads. Maybe someone else will have an alternative.
I've fired at least 20,000 rounds of #7 powered 10mm loads through my S&W 1006 with no noticable barrel wear. It also meters very well.
