He was well aware that 2400 was not the only powder suitable for magnum performance.
Great article! Too bad that there aren't those kind of authors and wealth of information available today in magazine articles. Now it is just a bunch of tacticool this and zombie that, with no meat. People are just lazy now and authors don't do in depth testing. Of course Elmer was from another era before lawyers and frivolous lawsuits. His articles, this included, is as relevant today as it was when it was written.
