    Trail Boss instructions?

    When IMR Trail Boss first came out I bought a jug to try on some now forgotten project.
    As I recall the process went something like fill powder to the base of the cast boolit and thats max. Reduce that wt by 30% and thats starting load.
    I had read a article by IMR at the time but can not find it now. Im just looking to verify the process before I load. Any help would be great!

    My current project is 10.35 Italian in a Tettoni Brescia revolver mod 1916 with cast 160 grain boolits.
    This will end up being more of a wall hanger than a shooter . But I do want to shoot it a little.
    I plan to run .45 auto rim brass through a 303 Brit sizer die. Load with trail boss and top with a 160 Commercial cast .427 160 gr boolit.
    Im not going to get a mold for this one as I plan to shoot it so little and I cant find the mold I want anyway.
