    LeveRevolution powder

    This is a great powder for use in the .30-30 with cast boolits. Have any of you used it in .250 Savage or .308 Winchester, or?
    It's all chicken, even the beak!

    So far only 30/30 but as it's tad slower than varget should be OK. Larry Gibson has experimented in other cal. maybe he'll chime in. IIRC some cals didn't work as well as expected.
    Whatever!

    I found it to be an exceptional powder in .32 Win. Special hard cast G/C 170 gr. @2000 FPS and excellent accuracy.

    In my 30-30, it would have 200fps extreme spreads, until I got into max pressures, which gave me 2300fps with a 150gr bullet. Then it shot wonderful... of course, then the pressure was too great, and after a few shots I would have to full length size my cases. So I don't use it, I use Varget or IMR 4064.

    I've been loading it behind 70 gr Speer semi pointed in my 1-8 223,and I love it .Of the loads I worked up 25.5 gr was the keeper.

    I also load it in both my .32 Winchester Special Model 94, and my Model 8 Remington in .32 Remington calibre. I bought it on recommendation of a close friend for the Remington auto-loader and, as they say, "never looked back." That it shoots better than I do (as, sadly, many other firearms ) in the lever action is a big plus, too.

    Does it have an application in .38-55?

    Not looking for accuracy only at max loading though. This is for a high wall clone fun shooter.
