    I use 8gr AA#5 under a Lee 358158 rnfp, I get 1100fps in my revolvers (6" and 7.5") and 1375 out of my Miroku 1873. I use this because it shoots well in all my guns, so when I go pull a .357 load to shoot, I don't have to be sure I'm pulling the one...

    T-Bird replied to a thread New 92 miroku accuracy in Leverguns
    my miroku '73 shoots as well as I can see with the tang sight I have on it. All I shoot is cast- Lee 358-158rf and LY 358429. Don't know how it does with j-words. I have an '80's (I think) miroku mod '53 32-20 that is an absolute tack driver with...

    I'm "actively" considering one which means that I went to the LGS to see if they could get me one and for how much. I am pleased with your report.

    I have a Marlin 1895 CB 45/70 that I shoot the LY 330 Gould with 30 gr IMR 4198 and dacron filler for about 1400 fps, great accuracy and doesn't kick like a mule. I have this for a 100yd deer rifle, but this is all I need for where I hunt. If you...

    Boolits look good, you’ve come to the right place for your habit that you don’t know you have yet. Lots of enablers here!

    That's cool Dan. I briefly shot my Pedersoli 45/70 sharps in the '90's with BP got good results, just lost interest in that pursuit I guess, washing brass etc decided that when I'd go black, I'd muzzle load, might revisit that area.

    Ken, I shoot the Lee 250gr boolit formerly with Lyman Super moly lube, now with Hi-Tek supercoat. The load I use now is 16.5gr 4227, dacron,Lee boolit for 1350ish fps.I was under the impression that this is a load comparable to a 250gr 38/55 load...

    I have a JES 3 groove modified Win '94 that I wanted to use at black powder velocities with smokeless. Found that with IMR 4227 and dacron filler. I'm getting that sized group at 100yds (with a 3x9 scope). I size mine .378.

    I had one years ago, it turned me into a ladle caster. My ladle never leaks and always pours well. Literally threw my drip-o-matic in the trash.

    Usually the common thread in those deer that are drt is that the bullet passed near the spine/cns. Look at the anatomy of a deer, many shoulder shots are actually near the spine as they pass through. Sudden drops are usually cns shock. In my...
