    Tonight I loaded up a box of cartridges with H4198 charges from 17-18.5 grains. Hopefully I can try em out soon. Will pick up some 3031 at the fun store.
    Currently casting and loading: .32 Auto, .380 Auto, .38 Special, 9X19, .357 Magnum, .257 Roberts, .30 WCF, .45-70 Gov't.

    Tried out 17 and 17.5 grains at 50 yards. Both loads were easily minute of deer or coyote. 17 grains produced a somewhat tighter group, however I doubt that really means anything. Hopefully I can try some more tomorrow.

    Try upping the charge weight more in increments up to 20grains of h4198. 20grn of either imr or h4198 seems to be a favorite load.

    Thanks, I am planning to do so. Also my 170 grain mold showed up today so hopefully I can try some of those out too.

    My Mauser likes the 25gr 3031 load with either boolit. This is the 170 Lee(180 gr my alloy).

    Excellent! What kind of twist does your rifle have?

    1-10" .308" groove. I size .309" for it. I just got a .311" sizer to try next time for my 30-30 MG Marlin. I haven't been pleased with .309" in it. Both it and the Mauser are amazing with j-words but cast is so much more fun!

    I've been upping the charge by 3/10 of a grain at a time. Accuracy gets better as I increase the charge. The last charge I fired was 18.8 grains, and it produced the tightest group so far. 2 inches at 65 yards off shooting sticks, which is about as good as I can do with anything. Texas by God is right, cast is much funner!!
