Well finaly was able to shoot my Xmass present from my wife found the most acurate load 85/90grns ffg goex, 177grnprb I cast myself thanks to the donation of Red River Rick. Off the bench I was using .15 pillow with t/c bore butter, but I was using to much patch lube and was only getting 4 in at 100yards (Dec28). I went back and used .15 pilow with lightly lubed bummbling bear grease got the grop size down to 1.5 in at 100 yards and 4in at 75 yards off hand . Imust say Im realy happy with all the help on this forum with casting boolits, just wanted to say thanks:drinks: and hope everyone has a great new year. Dave T.:Fire: :castmine: :-D

You have the makins of many an hour of shooting fun. Try loads down to 50 grains or so of FFFG. They usually are accurate with lower loads, more fun to shoot a lot of in one shooting session, and cheaper to feed at that loading level.

All of that and reduced fouling also!
