.357 Powder and Cylinder Test Pics

50 yd steel silhouette project - 4.5" target

Today's results with both Unique and Win231 at 50yds.

It appears the Win231 is most accurate when pushed to 6 grains.

Hope this helps someone.

The half-asked rest:


Unique Powder at 50 yds


Win231 at 50 yds


Cylinder Test to Check Flyers

Moved in to 25yds for the cylinder test.

Also shot a few at 50yds with 6.4gr of Win231.

Most important thing I've learned about reload accuracy with my Model 686:
158gr LSWC's like to be pushed more than they like powder puff loads.

APPEARS to me that none of the cylinders are way out of whack.

What does the test tell you?
