    For what it's worth, my guess would be that the small cloud surrounding the bullet would be the air that was in the barrel ahead of the bullet.

    frnkeore replied to a thread Collar Button Loads in Cast Boolits
    10.0 gr of Unique, I think would be a good load and by that, I also think that 9.0 gr of Titegroup would be a good starting point. I've used Titegroup in 32/20, subsonic loads. It seems (for 32/20 at least) that it needs more pressure that I was...
