    For bullseye shooting I used 4 grains in my Clark longslide. For informal shooting with carry guns it's been 4.5 or 5 grains of bullseye with a H&G 68bb. I'd like to try Larry's 230/ 5 grs bullseye in gov't model. Most of the older references...

    Will try it, thank you. I've the 452374 and 45266 that runs about 215 grain weightwise, along with some 200 grain examples. Used to use WW's but they're harder to acquire now.

    I had an HK91 that dented the case as you mentioned. I did reload it at least once, no issues with the dent or the fluted markings. Took some extra time in the tumbler to clean. When I loaded for the 91 I used a somewhat fast powder, to have...
