Not realizing his demise I posted something to the list and I am a relatively new member. Sad these folks are passing.

Thank you - I was wondering about that.  I've got some nice Starline stuff and once the IPSC season winds down a bit I'm going to make the clean stuff dirty!  The .41 isn't out of the picture but I'm a bit less interested than I once was - what I am cranked up about a bit now is the .357.  Can't wait to get into it a bit more!

Thanks again for the information, its ALWAYS appreciated.

I can only speak for myself, but I also had high hopes for the 41JMP and the lack of bullets was a drawback for me, but that was like 20 years ago,,,  Truth be told it just was not as exceptional as the 357 AMP was and after having spent a bunch of time with the 357 AMP I was spoiled.
 
Once you get your dies set up for your Bbl/gun and you dial in some good ammo specs, you will leave the range with a big grin every time after shooting the 357 AMP. 
 
Give it a try and risk the addiction!!!

I have the .357 AMP dies, a bit of used brass, and some new .44 AMP Starline brass.  I just can't wait for my new barrel for the plan to come together. Bring on the addiction!  No cure, no recovery desired. Wink

Did you recently buy a Bbl, or are you waiting on Brian's next batch?
 
Either way, it will be worth the wait.
 
Sorry I dont recall what screen name Skinner uses here, but he was another one of us that thought the 44 AMP was fun but wanted to try the 357 AMP and had a few struggles along the way but in the end he too was a believer like so many here who have given it a try.

I'm on the wait list. Been on it since early last summer.Confused
I know, with the .357 version I have ordered, it WILL be worth the wait.

It's funny, because the first AMP I ever saw in person at a gun store (back in the early eighties) was a 6 1/2" VR .357 AMP.  I asked the guy if I could handle it, and I couldn't believe it when he handed it over to me (I thought he might be over-protective of it).  I should have tried to buy it back then, instead of just ogling it and dreaming, but hindsight's 20/20.
Anyway, this new bbl will make up for it.  Right Brian? Wink

Has anyone used Vihta Vuori powders to reload for .44AMP or .357AMP?

Hi Josh,
I used vihtavuori powder for years in my 44AMP pistol.
12 grains of 3N37 under a Fiocchi 240 SJSP gave 1280 fps from my gun. Not the flamethrower loads, but a very reliable and good working load.

If you want something similar to the Hodgdon H110, you could use vihtavuori N110.
