    2200 is very fine grained and runs through a measure very consistently. When you shoot a couple of hundred rounds in a day’s squirrel shooting, you don’t have time to weigh charges

    Yes, Accuracies 2200. I have Checked the velocity of this load, but it will blow up a ground squirrel at 150 yards.

    I have tried about every cast bullet and load combination possible for the 22 hornet in both Contenders and 3 different rifles. The most consistently accurate load has been the Lee 55 over as much 2200 powder a neck sized case will hold and sparked...

    I have had excellent results with 23 gr 5744 under the NOE 258 gr RN cast hard ( Linotype or water dropped WW) and sized .324. My groups with this load are as good as I can see with a 17A globe sight up front and a receiver sight in back. I have a...

    Fast Asleep replied to a thread 375 Whelen in Hunting with CB's
    Agree on the 375 Whelen—I have JES rebores in 338-06 and 375 and 400 Whelen plus a 35 Whelen barrel in a Mauser. The only way to improve on the 30-06 is to open up the case neck and use bigger bullets! The 375 is my favorite and I am using 375...

    I have put many thousands of rounds full-throttle cast loads though my 44 mag Super Blackhawk and was always very happy with it—until I acquired a 475 LB BFR. The BFR is very well done and is much more comfortable shooting full house loads.

    Regarding the carrier question, I have 1893’s in 30-30, 32-40 (both original) plus JES rebores from 30-30 and 32 Special to 35x30-30 and 38-55. All of these use the same carrier. In addition, my 336 rebored to 405 JES uses the original 30-30 carrier.

    Fast Asleep replied to a thread Lee C225-55-RF in Cast Boolits
    I have tried about 20 different 22 cal molds from all manufacturers and find the Lee 55 is the only one one sub MOA in my Cooper 38 22 hornet. I load this over a full case of AA 2200 powder.
