Just for the second record, I spoke with Hodgdon about HS-7, and found that it was discontinued many years ago as it was expensive and inefficient to produce. Seems that we're the only ones that want it back, everyone else is happy with HS-6 and such, although I still see old load data where it trumps everything else, in several different calibers.
DoubleJ, I'm interested in your cfe testing after running out of true blue.

-CFE Pistol, 1x fired brass, CCI400, 1.580", 40gr Vmax

4.9gr Hi 1752, Lo 1729, Av 1738, ES 23
5.0gr Hi 1777, Lo 1740, Av 1761, ES 37
5.1gr Hi 1799, Lo 1742, Av 1759, Es 57
5.2gr Hi 1794, Lo 1775, Av 1781, ES 19
5.3gr Hi 1819, Lo 1733, Av 1783, ES 86

Recoil became stout at 5.2gr, no pressure signs, 5.1 would be good for fun.

This was from my FSN, stock other than an EA recoil spring.

You got it. Couple others have played with it as well, but I think there's a lot more playing to do. I also ran it with some lighter bullets and it worked fine, but that data eludes me at the moment.
