    I like Jeff Bartlet, smart man selling this powder in 8 pound jugs...;-) This powder has not been released as a canister powder. Loads can be worked up using H-870 or AA-8700 data, less 10%. Burning rate seems to be ...

    John it used to always be refered as "cannister grade" powder, and always spelled with TWO N's. I guess I'm still stuck in the 60's, what next Cast Boolits Forum call HEADS, TIPS, POINTS FORUM:veryconfu I would like to hear what Felix has to say,...

    Prague 1901 You are correct. Slower burning powders give a slower rise to pressure which means a kinder, gentler effect on the cast bullet during acceleration. This is/was well proven with a multitude of pressure measurements taken during many...

    Nice 44 Charlie. That gold ring scope should get you sighted in quickly. What are your loads going to be? I've a gold ring same style. Mine's a 1-4 power. Has a 4 inch eye relief due to it being on a 400 Jeffery.

    I think you will love the 6.5x55 cartridge, or fall in love with it. I shoot 160 and 140 jacketed and 170 and 140 cast. With the heavy jacketed bullets mine dots on slow powders 4350-4831 speeds to even the 50 cal surplus numbers, with cast I've...

    No 1 that is not correct, the powders loaded into factory ammo and military ammo are in fact BULK/OEM powders and are loaded in ammo that loads are worked up on pressure test equipment( because the relative burn rate can be so different from lot to...

    22LR is a funny animal, in that sometimes cheap off the shelf ammo can group very, very well. Sometimes even better than Match grade. It pays off to test a lot of different ammo to see what the particular firearm likes. Other factors come into play...

    While I don't have the White Label version, I've used the Lee LLA version for many years. If it has dried out you can thin it with a touch of mineral spirits. If it's just cold, you can warm it in a container of hot water. Either way will usually...

    I use it on 7.5x55 Swiss and the 7.62x64R it works great, you need an Mdie though, sizes to .306 neck inside. I've got a 35 cal one too.

    Not home right now so can't give length but it is about the same as a 55 gr M193 bullet as I recall. Stabilizes fine in 12" twist, at least at 1900 - 2400 fps.
