    BB shot and improved cylinder will let you get them at 35 yds. 1400-1450 fps is a good velocity to target, it provides enough energy through velocity to do the job.

    your gonna be effective at anything from 1800-2,000 muzzle velocity. you don't need fancy and you don't need cutting edge accuracy. the 4759 will get the job done no problem. just sight in to your first cold shot at 100 yds, then note where the...

    My opinion... 0.678" RB's are about the easiest to load for and are a standard mould size from Lyman and RCBS. They fit several standard shotcups very well and with a 16 or 20 ga. nitro card wad or two underneath generally shoot very well. ...
