Me, too. I've been shooting them for a few years and I'm glad they're back in production and available again.

It only gets better. I picked up an 8 pound jug of Alliant 2400 Saturday. Guess what I'm doing today.

E.K. The guy that was responsible for the .44 magnum used 2400 for his loads in that and the .357 and .41 mag.

Both Elmer and Skeeter Skelton were fans of 2400. I'll probably pick u a pound at the next gun show I go to.

O.K. a 2400 question from a newb hand loader.
I have a couple pounds of Alliant 2400 that I have yet to try.
While at a gun show recently, I picked up a pound of Hercules 2400.
The can was unopened, and from a trusted source. He assured me that it was viable powder, having been properly stored.

I see older load books, and some new ones, that show loads for Hercules 2400.
Other manuals/online sources list Alliant loads, but I've yet to see the two listed together in the same manual.

I know Alliant bought out Hercules some time back, but has the formula changed significantly over time?
My biggest question is,
Can I use Alliant data with Hercules powder, and Hercules data with Alliant powder, or is this a bad idea?

I'd call Sierra bullets at 1-800-223-8799 and ask for ballistics. I bet they have your answer. I have used that number many times It's their reloading question hotline. They have always treated me very well and have never steered me wrong.
