I think later this hunting season or next year, I'm gonna try that bullet on deer in my 1894CP or 1894CB. I think within 65 yards it outa do the job :D But then I should start working on the 1894FG :?

Good luck on the FG.

That is a tempermental gun with cast. I'd be happy to test any bullets you can come up with. The only one I've tested so far is the Lee215grswc pb. It shot fine with 7 gr unique in my redhawk, but terrible in the FG. I believe the size needs to be .412 in order to perform in the rifle.

I have the current production Lyman mold for the 41 , this is a SWC with GC mold. And with this little jewel I'm having trouble getting the gas checks to seat :? But if I get it worked out , I'll be more then happy to cast you some :)
