    Default The sweet smell of success.

    Regulation load for my 1885 double rifle found on the third try. I'm happy. 450-400 BPE. 250 grain cast flat nose bullet with 34.2 grains of 4198 with 3 grains of dacron filler at 50 yds. Iron sights and old eyes.

    That is great shooting for the old gun even when it was new. To figure out a guns regulation from scratch is not easy,congrats
