    Our technical team in Greece were able to retrieve that G&A article and send it to me. After all that -- the article doesn't offer any useful loading data. It mentions several powders that were tried, and bullet weights and the final velocity they achieved -- but there are no recipes. Nothing that would even be used as a starting point.

    Reading about the "Super Cooper" makes me think that the guy who has been playing with what he calls the "357 Ring of Fire" is basically doing what Jeff Cooper already did, decades ago. There truly is nothing new under the sun.

    "Nothing that would even be used as a starting point."

    That is what QuickLOAD and other internal ballistics software is for.

    Just make sure it is not solely derived from loading data tables.

    QuickLOAD is the real deal.

    I managed to make pin-fire ammunition for an OLD gun this way.

    We fired about 50 rounds in a very old French pin-fire revolver.

    Smokeless pinfire from Quickload? Wow. I keep reading about how you have to fudge Quickload input to get a known output before you can use it to predict the next load. And how it does not handle straightwall cases as well as bottlenecks? Zat so?
