    Oh joy, my Keith bullet under 12 grains of 2400 in a 38 case gave me a 5 shot 1.5" 50yd group. So I try the 358156 bullet with the perfect base still sucks. That's also a 38 case load, 13grs of 2400. Anyway, it looks like it's the load not the...

    I got the 60,000btu burner. Hopefully my range lead and ww will become ingots before the end of summer. Thanks for the input.

    I've tried some hotter loads using 1680 and a 115gr gc in a 1931 OP. I gave it up because it Was painful and decided something less vigorous was appropriate.

    NORTHMN, the 92 is a short rifle and the fore end cap may need relieving, also the forend. I really Don't want to start that or shooting with nothing attached to the barrel, etc. I've only had two leverguns that wouldn't shoot for me, a late...

    My lead bullets are all mine, none have undersized bases. BTW, if I could shoot 2 to 3 inch 5 shot groups with iron sights with any of my cast bullet rifles I'd be a happy guy. I thought about the very same 180gr type cast, but need to purchase...

    That says it, my Miroku 92 .357 sucks for accuracy. It has a 'bullseye' rear and a marble fiber optic front allowing a fairly consistent sight picture. I have tried a 358156 with the appropriate amount of 2400 with little luck before switching to...

    I believe the 13.5 load was using 38spec. brass (the bullet was designed for the 38/44) that would be a scary load. I use 12 grains in 38 special brass for around 1200fps with my chrony. I shot a 3" 50yd group a few years ago, pretty good for a...
