The target at left was shot with the black powder load. The ones in
the black are 3/4" center to center. My first shot with black powder
was after shooting about 100 rounds of smokeless and it went way
outside the group. (it's not on the paper) My second shot was high.
The last 3 I could not see and thought I was missing until I walked
up and saw the group. More testing is in order.
These bullets tend to
penetrate like crazy! I tried shooting into 9 layers of carpet and
the bullets just whizzed right through and on downrange. I finally
laid all the carpet on top of a 4 x 4 and a 2 x 6. I fired into it
and the bullet was laying on top of the ground UNDER the 2x6!!
The bases expand evenly
on all loads. 24 gr. is as much black powder as it will hold. That
is level full with the case mouth. When you seat the bullet the
powder goes up into the hollow base. More to be done of
