Ok, now I'm starting to get what I was hoping for out of these Penn Cast bullets.

I'm using from a can of Dupont IMR 3031 that had a price tag still on top of $7.50!
Rem brass, cci 200 primers, and 350 gr Penn Cast bullets at 50 yds. http://www.pennbullets.com/
Loads tested were 43gr, 44gr, 45gr, 46gr, and 47gr.
Each grain of powder added about 50fps to the velosity from my 1895 GBL.
The 47gr load had one round hit off the paper to the left.

The first shot from a clean barrel was off the paper to the left. Each load was tested with four rounds per load.

Thanks for the info 8) my last group with my GBL using a 405 grain cast flat nose over 45 grains of 3031.
The last four shots are the four to the right.
50 yards.

I'm thinking of sticking with the 44gr load @1350fps, load up a box of 20 and shoot some targets for the postal match.

I bet there are no complaints with that 44 gr load.
Good stuff, I like to see people getting stuck into working up loads wether it be for target or game.
Keep up the great work.

I think that Pitchy has a neighbor that he doesn't like much.... ;)
That looks like aluminum siding on a house.

;D your the second person that noticed that, we just made my 50 yard back stop last fall and i didn`t have any RR ties to stack against the dirt but did have some old door panels.
It`s the far one.
Put a window in the end of the garage and can shoot from a nice warm place. ;D
