    Well done, GRMPS! Maybe this place needs a 'baby a day' thread to keep us all grounded in what REALLY matters! :)

    And so little love for the venerable .43 Spanish....... Currently my favorite loading bench BP torture device. Both in a RB and Peabody Military Rifle.

    I like 748....but have no grounds for comparison. I've not used the H335. 748 is, however, my go to powder for the loads you're looking at. I think you'll find better than plinking results with some work up!!

    First and foremost, I would pick the rifle you like.....and then worry about the mould and accompanying load. Moulds and bullets are cheap, and easily sold/traded/remelted. But a good fitting rifle that you like and have confidence in is a way...

    If you study your maps/terrain, get your wind right, and only hunt a particular stand/location when the wind is right, none of it matters. My personal belief is that the 'products' are marketed to those who just don't know any better. The last...

    Tim.....let us know how that works in the Mauser. I have a Peabody in 43 Spanish with a generous chamber, and you have me thinking, hhhmmmmm...... Wonder how fast that would go? :) Could be fun if it will actually shoot straight!
