Where have the .357Max reloaders vanished to, an underground cult?
David White, Doc, and most others have seemed to disappear.
Is Emily [Marty's daughter] the only one 'loving' it today?

Data is so limited [that I see], and only in bits here and there.
The 357 Maximum FB page hasn't had a post in three+ years.
Has anyone used No. 9 powder with cast bullets (or something similar) ?

The 357Max is one of my super favorite cartridges. Is there anywhere,
these days, that the lovers of this jewel congregate?

Please help, before I end up with too much time on my hands, that the
'Queen' starts expecting me to increase my achievements on her mile-long honey-do list(s).

Signed,
Desperate

There is a private Facebook page with 815 members and plenty of recent posts. A lot of Facebook pages went private, or opened a new private page and only invite trusted people because the anti-gun crowd is searching out firearm related pages and reporting them.

I've been considering opening a MeWe page specifically for the .357 Max.

I've never used #9 powder at all.

I own an Encore rifle, a Contender carbine, and a Contender pistol, all in .357 Max. It's my favorite cartridge.

All the best,
Glenn


If at first you don't succeed... buy newer / better equipment!

I bought a used 14 inch SSK 357 Max Contender barrel 3 years ago and I shot a doe with it on next to last day of hun season in Ohio. Load is Lilgun and Hornady 180 XTP @ 1950 FPS. At the shot doe jumped in the air and walked away like nothing happened. 30-35 yds later she feel over dead!
