    I am learning as I go as well. Previously I have used the Lee C309150F in the 30-30 and it worked well, the buck fell just a few yards after the shot. That was with straight wheel weight alloy.

    You did great, those Ithacas are great shotguns. I always glass bed the upper receiver to the stock to prevent the characteristic crack from appearing. Because it will.

    Twenty nine grs of 748 under the Lee C309170F in my 30-30 was pleasant and accurate. Three shots in .20" @40yds accurate. I'll echo others about using it in the .223 also- good stuff.

    Today's 100yds 5 shot group was 1-3/4". I think that a better shot could tighten that up, but it'll work for me. I think that I got lucky on this one and I'll take it.
