I decided on W296 as the powder of choice, Hornady 300gr XTP MAG bullets, Remington brass and CCI350 primers. I settled on 20.0gr of powder and got just under 1400fps at the muzzle.
Produces mild pressure in my rifle. The spent cases drop out under gravity, no need to open the action fully to deploy the spring ejector.
Here's a target with 2 shots taken off-hand at 40 paces. With only a bead sight, problematic accuracy will result at longer ranges -
About the coolest little rifle in my collection I think. Shop around and you can find these new for under $200.
Intended as a grouse slayer, and certainly capable of taking big game.
Attack life! It's gonna kill you anyway.
You did that offhand at 40 yards with a single bead front sight? I'd say it's a keeper!
If you aim at nothing, you will surely hit it.

Yep looks, like a keeper.
