Loads for good old lead

  1. GUNWHISPERER

    If you have any loads you've cooked up for cast boolits for your 303 you can share them here.
    Supersonic, subsonic, heavy, or light.
  2. 9.3X62AL
    9.3X62AL
    Nothing exotic or esoteric here, but it works well and shoots accurately in my SMLE No. 1 Mk III. I have a wide-grooved and much-fired example that requires .316" sizing on a semi-custom Lee 200 grain boolit from a Group Buy done here about 5 years ago. 16.0 grains of Alliant 2400 and WLR primers combined into R-P brass (neck-sized/fire-formed) enables a long service life for brass and a gentle usage pattern in the 1918 BSA platform I enjoy so much.

    The widely recommended load of 16.0 gr. Alliant 2400 @1460 fps will shoot into 2.5" @100yd. with Lyman 314299, using neck sized R-P cases and Winchester Magnum or standard primers.

    For a very low recoil load Lyman 311413 and 8.0 gr. Alliant Green Dot (1170 fps) or 9.0 Green Dot (1270 fps) My No. 4 rifle shoots center @100 yd. (ladder sight set on 800 yd.)
