    I have been using this one in my Lyman 54Cal Deerstalker. It is a real game getter. Sorry, no experience with Lee reals. Hornady make a 54 caliber "Great Plains" 425 grain conical, and these performed so well in my 54 that it inspired me to get my...

    Long ago there was a 38 Special 200gr load that may have been trying to copy the British revolver. I am not sure if that is the origin or not. I would like to try to load some Lyman 358 430 200 gr RN for my two Smiths. I have a little data,...

    My J pet load for decades has been 46.5 gr of IMR 4064 with either the Hornady or Sierra 168 gr HPBT Match. LC cases and CCI No.34 primers. If I don't have the #34 I will use WLR. Am I reading that your new to you CMP Garand has a rubber buttplate?

    I've been in Flagstaff since 1977. Yes, the town has grown, but it's still a small town and hasn't lost it's charm. FYI, I believe the hospital here has some satellite "branches", so it may or may not be in Flagstaff. Either way, you'll have...

    Weighed vs measured? That is a tough one. I wish I had all the answers. If you shoot in Carpenter, you know Travis just kinda scoops, pours and shoots. ...and does well! He always puts a smile on my face. I would have to say it depends on...

    You can reduce the powder charge to the next lowest accuracy node and or change wad thickness keeping the same weight powder charge. The bullet location is fixed for the most part. Tools to adjust the load: Powder brand, compression(if much)...

    I shoot BP ammo with zero compression in most of my accurate match loads. In rare cases my accuracy load will have 0.020 - 0.040". Compression with good powder is incidental to the barrel time you find the accuracy. In my humble opinion, much to...
