    I've come across 6# of HS-6 and 2# of HS-6 for a total of $120. I've found a few loads in 38, 357 and 45 for the HS-6 that I could use but I'm having a hard time finding dat on the HS-7 since it's been discontinued. Anyone have good info on HS-7 or 6? I'm loading for 38, 357, 44 mag and 45 acp.

    HS-7 was used a lot for 10mm max loads :D
    Good, powerful BOOM!!

    Hogdon states that it was a Shotshell primer that was used for magnum handgun loads due to its properties.
    .357, .41, .44, & .45-Winchester, along with 10mm are the suggested handgun calibers.

    Here's a little something I found on the net.

    When I reload .45 acp with a 160 gr. cast lead bullet I use 9 grs. of HS-6, and for .38 sp. I use 5.5 grs. for a 125 grain cast lead bullet. That's kinda light, but I only use those loads for practice.

    571/HS7 is great for .38 Super, .40S&W, and 10mm Auto (and, I would expect, .44 Rem Mag). I still have just under 2 lbs and wish it was still around.
    HS6 is good in most pistol cartridges.
    I only load L-HBWCs in .38 Special for use in my S&W M52, so have no use for HS6.
    For .45ACP, there is the following:
