    So far my best groups run a out 2" from rifled Remington 870 shooting 0.735" round balls and 3" from smoothbore shooting a home cast slug from a home made mould. Several groups from each were shot and all quite consistent. Best groups at 100...

    curator, Glad I could be of assistance. I had to look up some loading data for the T/C .56cal. Renegade smoothbore the other day and find the T/C Manual to be an excellent resource. Btw, I used to own a .45cal. T/C Cherokee and it was painful to...

    Yes, you must be careful making substitutions. Best to get some reloading manuals. You will find that there are piles of loads for birds hot but not so many for slugs. Also due the the variety of components the load data is very specific. ...

    Not quite the same as the Paradox bullets but similar. The Kynoch version ran 750 grs. solid and was available let in hollow point too with somewhat longer nose and 735 grs. IIRC. If I had a rifled gun I'd certainly order one of those Russian...

    When done properly, it makes for accurate and super clean shooting. I shot this yesterday with my new Ruger # 1, 357 Max. When I got home, I pushed 1 clean dry patch through my bore. Spotless ! ! BTW, some of the rounds were in excess of 2,000...

    The Sierria book is a ring binder and designed to be added to. If you need data not in it, contact them and if they have it you will have pages to add to your ring binder. Still no cast data, they don't do cast boolits.

The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.
