    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    When scoring normal targets if the bullet touches the line you get the higher value. Per the OP all shots must be inside the 1/2" circle. The group can not touch the line. Group has to be less than .278" center to center if it is perfectly...

    Per SAAMI the TD'S are 28,000 CUP/PSI. At 28k they are both the same unit of measure. Lyman and a couple of others reloading manuals recommend lighter but that is not 45/70 SAAMI specs. ...

    I wish. Strange thing is most people get strangely quiet will they have to back it up with money. I have won three $100 bets on 1,000 yard shots or should I say lack of shots.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    To meet the OP's criteria each and ever shot has to be within plus or minus 1/8" of the absolute dead center for both POI and group size. Even at 25 yards with the best ammo and equipment (which I have) I don't believe I would claim I can do it...

    Snider conversion rifles are pretty common up here in Canada of course and LOTS of people shoot them. Bertram brass is grossly expensive (and not great quality) so most people buy Magtech 24 gauge brass shotshells and reform them into .577 Snider. ...

    Rest of my pics would take a while to get but again we have been shooting both the 40 from 9mm and 44 from 40 S&W with excellent results. Try it, or don't..... but many of us shoot these bullets with results that we are quite happy with. ...
