I'm trying to work up an accurate hunting level load for my win 94 trapper. I tried 3031 with no luck, 4198 was a good but better, but still not the accuracy I need. Looking here I found that several people have reccomended 4895, but I don't have a manual with any loads for it. I loaded some rounds up with 28 grains and got the best groups yet, but hitting about 6" lower than factory loads, which tells me the velocity is a good bit lower. Does anybody have a manual or chronograph data that can tell me a ballpark velocity on this load? The hodgoden website lists a max load of 33.5 grains; but that's with a jacketed bullet, not sure how high I can go with cast.
Also, I've been sizing my boolits to .310. I thought about trying some sized to .311, but my moulds only dropping at .310. Think they might bump up a little in diameter being pushed into the sizer? Mould is a lee 150 grain gas check.
