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
Just what the doctor ordered!
Fantastic shooting! Every reloaders dream is to find the sweet load quickly so as to save on powder and other components, looks like you did it! What a great shootin gun/round/man!
