    I was using 10 grs Unique with 3 RBs in my bfr you could hear the ball on bottom move when you tilted the case back and forth. Not thinking a whole lot about it I fired 2 shots and I noticed that something wasn't right so I went to eject the cases and they were stuck bad had to take a dowel and hammer them out when I got home I know they were not double charged not enough room in the case and I had fired probably a couple 100 of those Rds but those last 2 were not liking it had severely flat primers maybe I tilted the gun up before I fired and the balls rolled onto the powder. And with that I switched to h322 cause I need a reliable load these are my home defense loads I like Unique in reduced loads with a bullet just not in multiple ball loads I like my fingers too much. I shoot Ruger no1 loads out of that pistol and never seen a case do that

    Thanks Ozark Mike. Any more round ball loads will be singles. It sure would be a very effective home defense load.
