    Interesting Link- GMDR Cast Data

    Got this link from a friend during a discussion over on the 1911.org forum regarding the use of fast pistol powders in rifles. Link contains some very useful information from extensive testing. Moderators might want to sticky this one.

    It worked for me.

    OK People. Enough of this idle chit-chat.

    Strange, I tried it in Google and it didn't work. Just tried it in Microsoft Edge and it opened

    Thanks for this posting!!! Quite interestingly, to me, is I load 170-grain cast bullets in my .32 Winchester Special using Accurate Arms #2 powder, and the load I use -- chronying in at ~ 1,000fps -- is right between HIS published loadings giving 996fps and 1,104fps -- albeit closer to the first -- but I was/am very impressed that his printed numbers are in concert with mine!

    Awesome link! Thank you. I like that there are some Blue Dot loads in there!
    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!
