Part 3 of the Ruger Old Army projectile test

In this final episode (thank God!) I tested Kaido's custom 255-grain conical bullets

Thanks for all of your effort to produce those performance results Mike.
Considering the hardness of those Kaido bullets and the number of times reloading all of them as well as others, making use of a C&B loading press would be very helpful.
You seem to prefer loading C&B's using the traditional method but maybe you could do a review about one?

I have never owned one, but I'm thinking about getting one.

The weather that day, and for most of this summer, was really oppressive. As Fall comes along and this heat and humidity abates a bit, I think I can do more justice to this particular bullet. Especially by reducing the powder charges.
