    I have an old Speer manual that lists Elmer's load I have tried it in a different revo and it worked well in that gun not sure or remember the accuracy but I think it was around 1500 fps from a 7.5" Ruger Blackhawk

    GhostHawk replied to a thread 300 BO plain base? in Cast Boolits
    Agree nothing to worry about. Keep speeds below 1300 fps and get by without checks just fine.

    I would never use Lee reloading dies when Redding dies are available I try and use Redding exclusively sometimes I can't for whatever reason but given a choice I will always pick Redding

    I agree about the recoil for whatever reason it's not a heavy hitter I use it in my 475 Linebaugh and 500 Linebaugh I do get pretty good accuracy with it though

    sorry I used the unique with 255 gr Keith's hunting accuracy for me is 4" with irons at least smaller would be better but if I can aim at a spot and come within a heart sized area around it I would be happy the size of a cd @ 50yds would be...

    white eagle started a thread speed? in Cast Boolits
    In a 44 magnum with boolits over 250 gr and under 325 gr how much do you think speed,or pushing the load has in the accuracy of the load. Do you find that a 44 mag does better in accuracy when you get the speed up? would a load with a 315 gr Lee...

    Self-evaluation will always be our hardest task to perform. Our perceptions and thoughts are so often so clouded by imagining we're what we WANT to be, instead of what we really are. But accurate and sometimes brutal evaluation of our selves is...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread 223 Cast loads in Cast Boolits
    I've run 3 grains of Red Dot up to 8 grains under the 55 grain cast. All depends on how fast you want to go vs how thrifty you want to be. Accuracy for me was quite good at 6 grains.
