    Ruger 77/.44 my hunting buddy uses 6 grains of Bullseye with 260 Keith for 1050 fps and is very quiet using Gem Tech Tracker supressor Without the can is loud pop, like a cowboy load, not a crack.

    Hahah. Yup I always laugh when I read "RANGE LEAD IS 10 bhn". As if a range in Arizona has identical ammo shot as does Bangor, Maine and Tallahassee Florida... Maybe just maybe if you amassed every and all and tested and averaged that might be a...

    My .17 HMR is the probably my most accurate rifle at the moment. Was reluctant to say this but when you can punch out paper the size of a quarter at 100 yards, it leaves little to be desired. I even surprised myself!

    In the Ruger revolver 7.4 grains of AutoComp. Seating out to OAL 1.24" is CRITICAL as increasing seating depth causes a dangerous pressure spike in a small case like the .40 S&W! The long nose of Accurate slug fits length of revolver cylinder but...

    I grew up shooting Garand's, never used a small base die for anything but a REM 742, and a REM 700 with a Very tight chamber.. Got a Mini-14 in 1976 and a Colt AR a year later. Always use Standard Lyman or RCBS dies. Never had a chambering problem....

    A single ball will shoot low as to point of impact, but OK for close work within 30 feet or so. TWO balls will group closer to the sights. You can load three balls in a .357. One grain of Bullseye and one ball makes a quiet plinker. I...

    This data from The Fouling Shot: Firing a .30 carbine Blackhawk with “full charge” loads is unpleasant without adequate ear protection. The velocity of WW2-era Lake City 1944 Ball ammo was 1586 fps from my 7-1/2” Blackhawk, versus 1981 fps from...

    Lever actions also tend to string as the magazine tube empties, because the nodal points on the barrel move. If shooting groups hold the rifle normally as you would when hunting, but use the front bag to support the non-firing hand, holding the...

    These days there is no difference between IMR and H4895, all comes from ADI in Australia. Check the 4895 powder you have. If can is marked DuPont, it is pre-1977 and was made in Kenvil, NJ If IMR but marked Made in Canada it was made by...

    Insult me if you will. My experience of Lee dies will not change. Lee is a INEXPENSIVE way to start. I've even bought a Lee die set in the past. A set for .32S&W, they were a mix of .32ACP & .32S&W Long. They were too long to crimp a bullet into...

    If the range lead is mostly bullet cores from jacketed ammo and .22 rimfire, it will probably be 2-3 percent antimony with almost no tin. If there is lead from commercial hardcast bullets, then you may have enough tin in the mix to get reasonable...

    The 1 to 30 alloy will bump up with black or a fast burning pistol powder like Bullseye. Size nose to throat diameter, driving bands will remain untouched, as-cast.
