Nice write up Junior. "I wish I'd have bought 3" I know what your saying about that. I've tried 10 grains in the 30-06 with a lazer cast 165 and got very good groups. I don't shoot it in the 06 cuz I want to save it all for my pistols. I wish I'd have started shooting this stuff 15 years ago.

Thanks for the info. Just might need to try some WC820(n) in my .357 Winchester Trails end. :)

junior...good post. Indeed WC820 is one of the best bargains on the market right now. Next time, try Hi-Tech. He pays hazmat on 4 jug increments.
I've shot bunches of WC820 in the .44 Mag, .30 Carbine, 25-20, .223 (with cast), all of the .30/30 family of cartridges and I've only had great results.
My partner's shootig it in the .444 right now which leads me to beleive that it has applications for mid reange loads in the .45/70 as well. It does all right in the .38/55 as I've shot a bunch.
So keep the data flowing./beagle

I have old slow 820 and it really does well in the 45-70 using data from either Sierra or Hornday and 300 grain coated bullets. I don't have any 300 grainers cast to test them there.
MY POWDER IS AN OLDER LOT AND CHRONOGRAPHS WITH H110 IN ALL OF MY TESTING.
It is NOT from the newer faster lots.

Great Article Junior!
Bought one of those Auto-Disc measures and sprung the extra $10 for the adjustable measure. Been real happy with it...once I figured out how to set it up on my Lyman press with a carburetor return spring to pull the arm down.
