    HABCAN replied to a thread New to 6 cav molds in Cast Boolits

    Hands down vote: .257 Roberts or 6.5x55 Swede, with a stock that fits her...........handloaded with cast and a moderate powder charge such as 18.0 grs. IMR4227, increasing and varying the loads up to full charges as she becomes accustomed to it. It...
