If anyone was on the fence about loading lead with pistol powder give it a shot. Here are my results.
Any idea what dose of Unique would do under an RD 425 and 350?35remington said:When using the Lee 405 grain flatbase, I get 1260 fps with 16 grains of Unique and have been shooting that combo as long as I have loaded the 45-70. It shoots well in my peep sighted Microgroove Marlin.
The Lee 405 hollowbase gets more velocity because more of the bullet is seated deeply in the case.
Congratulations......you have found cheap and accurate.....the Holy Grail!
Nice mild muzzle blast and clean burning. Very good load. Not at all painful to shoot. Would go through a bear lengthwise. Make sure the bullet has enough meplat and it should do for hunting inside 100 yards.

Those are GC bullets, I'm not sure if that matters...I'm out of my comfort zone with reduced loads...seeking advice.
