    Apologise for the "nitpick" but a "fowling" shot would be from a shotgun aimed at duck or goose. A "fouling" shot is used to condition a clean dry bore before going "for record." Rant mode off...

    In my rifles 80 grains of Goex 3Fg gives the same velocity as 100 of Goex 2Fg or 90 grains of Swiss.

    If the .30-30 bore is in poor condition a .32 Special may not clean up on a rebore. Also, the older pre-WW2 nickel steel barrels are problematic as to being able to get good interior finish on a rebore. Relining costs about the same when done...

    I use 80 grains of Goex 3Fg in my .50 cal. 24" Green Mountain LRH, 28" twist barrel with 370-grain Maxi-Ball cast 1:40 tin/lead from Roto Metals with equal parts by melted volume of Goya Manteca and beeswax. Clean burning, accurate, stone killer!

    With 200-grain bullets, yes, at least close enough.

    Either is satisfactory. Most important is having ball tight enough that you cut a slight ring of lead off it in seating, of soft lead so you don't bend or break loading lever, and powder charge must be compressed.

    Bolt rifleor single shot will work fine. Mine has a 16" twist and stabilizes Accurate 36-245D subsonic with 8 grains of Bullseye. I get better accuracy slowing heavy bullet sown than using pistol bullets. Use 30 grains of 4895, 4064, RL15 or...

    JB is 1000 grit garnet in oil suspension and when used WITH KROIL is effective in removing metal fouling. JB and Kroil are safer to use than ammonia-based cleaners which may cause pitting of stainless barrels if left in too long.

    Earlier .38 Special wadcutter conversions of the Colt .38 Super National Match retained the recoil-operated action and used the .38 Super barrel, standard recoil spring and modified magazine to fire wadcutter ammo, simply rechambering the .38 Super...

    I shot lots of 452AA in .45 ACP with H&G#68 200-grain SWC @ 4.5 grains for 830 fps. You can use Bullseye data by weight in .38 and .45 wadcutter for a close match with factory ammo Use 7-8 grains in the .30-'06 with 150-170-grain cast...

    Softer bullets of 8-12 BHN are more suitable for .38 Special +P. Your 5 grains of Unique is a standard pressure, but full charge load in .38 Special brass. In .357 brass your 5.4 grains of Unique approximates .38 Special +P. The hard lubes...

    Thank you Larry! FYI another small FRB with more 36-151H bullets and 36-155D-146HP going out to you today if you want to continue testing some other powders. FYI for the group, Accurate 36-155D is another bullet giving great success in the .38...

    The Accurate 36-151H matches the profile of old .38 Colt New Police rounds and factory loads are approximated with 2.5 grains of Bullseye. I use this load in my S&W Model 32-1 as well as Colt Police Positive in .38 Colt New Police and my Webley &...

    Accurate 31-155D is a plainbase with tapered nose which fits the factory throats of .30-06 hunting rifles. In the .30-30 the nose is lightly engraved upon chambering, but feed and function are unaffected. Accuracy is wonderful at subsonic...

    Great buy. I no longer own a 9x18, but as FYI for those reading, the dies also work great for .38 S&W and your bullet sizer is also correct for that. Good luck.

    I have no experience with the . 35 Krag, but do have a .35/.30-30 which is splendid and I feel superior to the .35 Remington as suitable brass as feedstock is plentiful and cheap and its longer neck works better with heavier bullets. A .35...
