7.2 grIMR-SR7625 Unknown1.58" SPM guest
This load is based on a Berrys Plated HP of 125grs.using a Remington 5 1/2 mag. primer and using a medium to heavy crimp just so you dont cut through the plating. I always pull one just to make sure I have not cut through the plating. Very accurate load and economical to shoot. Shooting it out of a S&W 327 Performance Center 4 inch barrel, a S&W 586 6 inch barrel , and a Taurus Tracker 6 1/2 inch barrel.Shoots fine out of all 3 guns.
