I've got some older reloading manuals that show some pretty strong charges compared to newer data.
But ive also read that in the 90s the powder was changed to a faster version. Anyone here been using it over the years?

I used Hornady 170 gr FP's and their data with WLR primers at 32.0 grain in my Old Texan, I get right at 2100 fps. Hornady list 29.3- 34 gr with a fed 210 primer and their 170 FP. iIt is interesting that Hodgdon tops out this combination at 30.5 grains the difference being a Sierra 170 gr bullet. This load has accounted for 3 white tails, they all fell right over at the shot.

Just look up the Hodgdon data online. H355 shines with cast and 150gr. JSP.

I had good luck with H335 in my .30-30 shooting Sierra 125 grain FNHP bullets. I went to it when I was out of W748.

Dang, Kraky, I was just getting ready to close Outlook and do some reloading before dinner when I saw your post. Knew I worked with it once. Had to dig deep in my target stacks to see where they were. Didn't do much and went on to other powders, but this is the best I got at 50yds. I usually save my H335 & H322 for the 444's & 45-70's but thought it would be a good alternative powder to check back into later if other powders got scarce.
