Pahoo; I'm using Pyrodex RS powder 90-100 grains depending. My RCBS 44-240-SWC shoots best over 90, and the Hornady 240 swaged SWCHP over 100. That isn't the only game I took last week; I shot the noggin off a grey squirrel at 40+ yards with 1 shot. It surely impressed the game cop when he saw it. He was amazed that a .50 could be that accurate. I told him that my dedicated squirrel load was much, much less, but he thought that was a great shot nonetheless. CB.
If you want your children to follow in your footsteps, be careful where you walk.
Beware the man that only owns one gun; he probably knows how to use it.
I just hope my ship comes in before my dock rots.
