In some ways 2009 was not a good year for me and my family. I was laid off in Feb...

It is possible that your seeing those results if your velocity is around 1550 to 1600 fps and the gun is zeroed in around 180 yards. In my testing of the APP powder (3F) I found it was considerably...

RE: Just wondering

They work well in my .504 Ultramag. 100 to 110 grains of 777 3F gives a nice group with around 1680 fps for velocity. The skirt of the FPB's is around .505 to .506 so they stay put in the bore.

RE: New style + Old style=Good groups

Not bad at all for a fast twist round ball load. Should work well for anything you want to shoot up to WT size, maybe bigger. Next time out try it at 100 yards and see how it holds up.
