Hodgdon's Lil' gun for .357 mag.?

Just curoius if anybody is using lil' gun for .357 mag? I narrowed it down to 3 powders to try first: Long shot, Tight group, and Lil' gun.

Lil' gun is running at half the pressure of the other 2 using a 158 gr. hornady hp/xtp, and at 18.0 gr(max), a double charge would be darn easy to detect, and have less air gap in the case without using a filler.

Thoughts?

I bought a LB to try I really haven't use enough to make a recommendation.I do know there are people that say it works fine and others that say it causes early forcing cone erosion I think Freedom Arms recommends not to use it.I do know when I shot in my gun it got hotter in a few shots than any other powder I have ever used.AA9,2400,110,296,IMR &H 4227

Thanks for the possible heads up, I've been playing with what I have on hand, and I may settle on XTP's over win. 231.
