    Lee's .50 target Minie

    Has anyone out there used the Lee .50 target Minie? I'm curious as to how it performs. I've got a pair of CVA inlines & I was thinking of using it for target & whitetail around here. I've got a REAL bullet mould (320) that I haven't gotten to try yet also, along with a MAXIBALL mould.

    I have the 58 cal target minnie and it works very well. Charges have to be kept at or about 60 grains of 2F but if you do your part it will cut clover leavs at 50 yards.

    fiberoptik I posted on this board a while back that we tried it in a buddys "Scout" rifle. Worked better than any of the sabots he had tried before.Wewere using 80 or 90 gr ff I seem to recall. Use lube in base.About 1/2 full.
    If shooting,fixing,making and thunking were easy.Everyone would be doing it.

    justifiable, and praiseworthy.
