First off I want to thank Larry Gibson for his knowledge & help with this cast bullet.
I will post some pictures just as soon as I can scale them back to where they will download. My camera phone will not take a small enough picture for it
to download. And some dummy left my camera on and the battery has to charge.
I loaded 10 rounds each with IMR 4895 28.0 GR, 28.5 GR. & 29.0 GR. I was able to get 1.0 gr. tufts of Dacron. For the first time with this powder and filler combo
it was time consuming and that is why I only had 30 rounds. The first 3 shots made a ragged hole and then started to flare out, a bit discouraging but better
than anything else tried. I cleaned the barrel and started with the 25.8 gr loads I got 7 rounds on paper and 3 rounds wouldn’t chamber (another long story).
These 7 rounds were a pretty good group not great but better than 28.0. The gun really liked the 29.0 gr. rounds best group so far.
I’m beginning to like that bullet and powder.
