the target posted was shot with .40-65, 300-grain RCBS bullets over 24.0 grains of A5744, with new brass that needed fireforming. I'd shot some other loads at 200 and decided to see if these would shoot decently at that range. I thought I'd have to adjust the sight for elevation, but first shot was in the bull, then the others clustered nicely around. TO say I was happy would be understatement.
So, let's try some more on another target to see if it would repeat. It did.
Hmmm. I just looked, and it appears RCBS doesn't sell this mold anymore; they do have this one. More lube grooves, looks intended for black powder. I'll have to find some of them to try out.
With 56.0 black and the 400-grain bullet,
The above was loaded(after reading about this from several people) with the case mouth leaving the first lube groove uncovered(target use only). So I loaded five with the case mouth covering the groove
Last, I had some .45-70 loaded with the Lee 500-grain bullet before my mold went south. 35.0 of Blackhorn 209, a .060 wad. First shot was low, had to tweak the sights a bit, plus the wind was starting to gust some.
*I wanted to try these bullets for fireforming brass and general shooting. It working this well at 200 was great.
