    It really bothers me that people make assumptions about 296/H110 w/o testing it. And at least one person has done limited testing of it, found it was safe and still makes negitive assumptions, regarding it. Speer has published jacketed, pistol...

    I assume that your talking about the Lee, Grain/Factor and Velocity/ Pressure ratio? If so, second YES, from me. I like what he has done with it but, a Excel program would be a lot better. Frank

    My loads posted above are breech seated loads. That will make them comprable to a 45/90, a even larger case and a lower load density as well as pressure. The load of 17.5 gr would give a QL pressure of 7,553 psi in my BSed application, with the...

    If you have no idea what your alloy is, it's hard to tell where the problen is. Indoor ranges are mostly jacketed pistol w/pure lead cores. That will increase weight and reduce diameter, a little. If the mold casts larger than .453 or longer than...

    I do not advise anyone using this data, unless they are fimilar with duplex loading and I have notes added that make this data confusing. This was my MOST accurate 45/70 load but, the recoil was to much for me to use, long term in match...

    Hang on guys, I just went back and looked at my chronograph book and I have used 296, by itself. Note the SD and the ES that I got. A very good indicater of good combustion w/o any pressure signs. Frank

    It seems that Hodgdon doesn't believe that low density loads of H110/296 are dangerous. There is NO evidence of SEE with H110/296. There is evidence that a bullet can get stuck in a REVOLVER barrel with extremely light loads of this powder are...

    H110/296 is a excellent reduce charge powder. In BR shooting, it's not position sensitive. We have used it in Schuetzen for 40+ years with excellent accuracy. I used it in one of my 32/40's at 12.5 gr, a very low density charge. BUT, DO NOT use a...

    A good question but, what I can't figure out, is why the "Frogs" could not, at least round the meter up to 40", after we saved there butt's, twice in WW I & WWII. I'll never figure that one out!!!!! Frank

    Jerry, The premise for that statement, is that 1 grain is 1/15.43 of a gram. No matter how many times that you divide both, equally, the grain will always be a smaller unit, thus more accurate by a ratio of 15.43 to 1. Ken, I agree but,...

    Metric have sparked your car, almost since there have been cars. From the 1930's to before 1955 almost all cars had 14mm spark plugs and to answer the question "Where the hell did 18mm come from", Ford started using 18mm spark plugs in 1955. That...

    I've always considered WC852 to be H4831 speed. I have both powders (WC852 & H450) and I'm just about to rechamber my High Wall from 30/40 to 30/40 Imp (30 deg shoulder). When I get that done, I'll chrono them together and report back. Frank

    Yes, it does have a burn rate near H4831. The 6mm Rem likes 48 gr with a 85 gr bullet and 47 gr with a 100 gr. The 6mm Rem Mag, also likes it with 140's. I've heard that near to full case loads in the '06 is a accurate load but, I would...

    It's not been stated but, to shoot it with excessive headspace, you load the bullet out and "jam" it (doesn't have to be hard) into the rifling, to hold the rim against the bolt face. It will then just fire form the shoulder, into place. Frank

    I second this. If you have the 20# pot, you can adjust it. If you have the 10# pot, it's much harder. I've found that if you take the RH screw out of the wire handle, it will slow the pour and if you hone your technic, it will cure it. I used the...
