    As outpost 75 says the 6 gr Bullseye load under the 43-206H or under the Lee 429-200-RF has proven to be an excellent load in the 44 SPL. The pressure (pressure measured via an Oehler M43 and Contender test barrel) will run right at 14,000 psi +/-....

    Yeah, so much for being full I just had two bowls. The pepper isn’t bad once I ate a few spoonfuls. Kinda reminded me when I first started drinking, the first couple swallows you might choke a little and then it was smooth sailing. I’ll probably...

    I tried my first go at canning the other day. I think my timer got screwed up because I believe I only boiled my venison for about two hours and 20 minutes and thought I did for 3 1/2 hours. I also don’t own a pressure cooker and after all the...

    That certainly changes the dynamics as doing so requires not only precision but accuracy also.

    I would assume if you can find a gun and load combo that groups 5 inside .5” at 50 yards you’re good to go IMO. I’m sure there are a select few rifle and ammo combos That could do better but probably not consistently. In my opinion there’s just too...

    OP Are you meaning put 5 shots inside a .5" circle already on the target? Or are you meaning shoot a 5 shot group that will fit inside a .5" circle put around the group after it was shot?

    swheeler No, I did not state it clearly in the post you quote from and it's obvious you're still confused. The "that" in that sentence you put in red refers to the bullet diameter as explained clearly to you in post #10. That post (#10) should...

    franklin m The lee loader is fine as are your loads. Bumping the load up a bit with 4895 might improve the accuracy. To many who only shoot at short range because of range restrictions (50, 100 or 200 yards) find such loads entirely adequate. ...

    I don't have the "Keith" mould as I use and prefer the 358156 for such loads. I have recently received from Outpost75 some 170 +/- gr cast bullets similar to the Keith bullet to pressure test in 38 SPL cases over 2400. I'd planed on testing up to...

    That is a mild pressure load. I have pressure tested (Oehler M43 PBL with Finn M39) a bit of 7.62x54R, both milsurp and commercial, and found Winchester 180 factory, Norma 150 & 180 factory and most "modern" milsurp will run 43,000 to 52,000 psi....

    Actually, given MNs sometimes long tapered throat from the outside of the chamber case mouth. since your barrel measures .313 you get the 314299 and size at .314. Even then sometimes a .314 bullet in some thicker necked cases, as mentioned, can...

    A couple problems with your Rossi M92; first is the 1:30" twist as already mentioned. I had a Rossi M92 rifle (24" barrel) and even with the longer barrel found the heavier Lee 300 gr bullet did not stabilize adequately for best accuracy across the...
