    I found a 30-06 rifle manufactured by Colt and I don't know anything about rifles made by them. The rifle appears to be well made with a good stock and bedding. Does anyone have experience with Colt rifles? Are they accurate? thanks atr

    years ago...the 1960's ..I had a very nice LLama .380 and I did load cast for it. I used a 125 gr RN cast with Bullseye. I had to work up the powder charge slowly but finally got it right and the 125 gr turned out to be a good shooter for the .380
