Hodgdon HS7




Sometime in the distant pass I purchased 16lbs of HS7. Have no idea what I planned to load at the time, probably 1 1/2oz 12ga crow loads. Now I have no data to load in anything I shoot regularly.

Anyone got reliable data for heavy bullet 38super with this powder? Reputed to be the same powder as the old WW571.

Thanks.

Bob

Google is your friend! http://data.hodgdon.com/main_menu.asp
Only use data from published sources. That is one of the primary rules of reloading.

Old Man, already been there, nothing of use as HS7 is out of production. I would appreciate any recipes offered, tho I would use 20 years of loading experience and common sense as to which I'd actually follow.

Thanks for your concern.

Bob

There is some loading data on this page that matches what you're looking for. Not a lot but it's a starting point.

All the above for 38 Super Automatic USE CAREFULLY and work up! It's a great heavy shotshell powder especially for 20 gauge. I'd use it in shotshell if it were mine.

Hello, Arkie Bob.

The Lee "Modern Reloading" book as some HS-7 loads for you.
Not only for HS-7 but also Win 571. Hodgdon confirms that 571 and HS7 are the same.

Arkie,
Hodgdon has a load for 150gr LRN with HS7 on the website.

Bill

Sorry, looking again the data I see is for HS-6 not HS-7

HS7 load data

I still use HS7 (bought too much) in my 38super race gun. But you want to use a heaver bullet. Well, I have been using 115g JHP at 10.5g to make major in my race gun (7 port comp) for years. I don't have any info on heavier bullets. I'm trying to find load data for Win Autocomp for 38super major power factor to shoot IPSC. I've read it may be a good powder for comp guns.

Shootnchef; Autocomp was supossidly designed specificaly for compensated guns,so it should work good.I've used it in 45 with good results but needs pressure to clean up the soot.
