    Shoot 14 grains of Trail Boss in a Handi-Rifle chambered in 45-70. Shoots very accurately and does not kick too bad. Have shot several hundred rounds and still using the original 50 cases. Anneal every 100 shots. A lot of fun with a set of...

    I size to. .357 and use the same bullets in 9 mm guns and 38 Special guns. All are powder coated to keep lead out of the barrels. Have shot thousands of the powder coated bullets sized to .357 without any problems.

    Fire lapping sometimes work but as suggested earlier paper patched bullets might be better choice for a first try. I have manually hand lapped a lot of barrels over the years but I ruined a few barrels in the process of learning the process.
