Hi Guys :)

Hey this is a bit off my beatin' path, but a shootin' buddy of mine is wanting me to reload him some ammo for his Thompson Contender. I've shot 'em, but I'm really not too interested in any single shot pistols for myself. So, I need some reload recipe suggestions from you guys. He wants to do the 100 gr 7MM TCU thing and the 158 gr and 180 gr JHP thing for the 357 Herrett. Well, ... Let me havit!!! ... <Symbols crash>
:p
Thanx.

Wulf

*!!*!!*please independently verify the data before using. *!!*!!*

check loadbooks usa for T/C Contender books though might want to ask around if the books have the data your looking for.

Lymans 48th reloading handbook had no data for either

found some pages online

Thanx a lot MrApathy for you generous compliance with a T/C cartridge newbie's lame wishes. It is appreciated. The only data I could find for the 7MM TCU is pretty much what you've listed for me. Aside from the RL7, the BL-C2, H322 and H335 are the only powders I can find in the area and they are the slowest powders by a respectible difference in the 100 gr bullet range compared to the RL7. The H110 I ran across in some article that never listed the reload recipe for the 125, 158, and 180 gr bullets for the 357 Herrett. So this is the dilemma I'm experiencing. I'll try and find a T/C forum with some hospitable members. I've never run into this situation with any other calibers...the closest of which being the 357 SIG. Oh well.... Thanx again, MrApathy.
