Factory ???

Factory ammo does`nt even use canister powder It`s a blended bulk powder very similar but different .

When I first started reloading I pulled bullets to look at & weigh factory loadings , but gave up trying to id the propellent.

Looking back now I realize how big a mistake I could`ve made .

Stiking with good data & not 1 source , do ya research & follow safe loading practices is the way to do it !

What powder did you get?
...and do you already have the real 'LEVERevolution' bullets?

(Incidentally, what is your reloading background?)
