    Well - these have worked for me. Any good cast bullet of 160 - 180 grains, gas checked, over 19 grains of H 4198, for about 1600 fps in my short trapper barrel; or 16.5 grains of IMR 4227 for 1450 fps. (Ditto for 11 grains of Alliant Steel).

    I didn't take a picture, but yesterday at the SO range I shot twelve shots into a small hole @25 yards from an improvised rest with a load of 5 gr. Bullseye, a LR magnum primer, a Lee 160 gr.gc bullet sized to .309 and lubed with two different coats of plain JPW. I think I'm going to make some more and try them at 50 yards next time. My mold is the first one I bought for a smokeless powder rifle, an old single cavity Lee. It's no longer available in single cavity, but I did see it on the website as a DC.

    Yes, it probably would. How likely is to see black bear there, though?

    There is no 'right' that requires me to work for you or you to work for me!
