    If you don’t do it in a registered match it doesn’t count! Shooting,Running,Bikes you name it….

    Sweet! What velocity does that Trail Boss load give?

    That'll do...I mean that's about enough diplomacy going down range to change anyone's mind really....deer, elk, moose, 18 wheeler....that'll do

    So less than 14,000 boolits per ton of lead.

    It isn't full auto is it?

    What a cute little plinking round! Let's see . . . an overhead chain fall to load lead in to the pot to cast those . . . and a scoop shovel for a powder measure. LOL That is really quite the round! That really must be a lot of fu to cast up the boolits and to load them. Thanks for sharing and I hope you'll give a report on your range visit! Would love to see what you fire those in!

    I would think somewhere in the neighborhood of 1500 fps with the 65gr load. I have been shooting closer to 75 gr in my gun and get 1600 fps and groups around 1.25"@100yds with that load. Its a pleasant "plinking" load

    I hope you have a bunch of lead piled up. That's a seriously heavy boolit!

    What started the whole reloading for it thing was I lucked into a thousand cci primers for 50 bucks. Then got the mold fairly cheap.
