Shot 45 C Henry at 100 yards Yesterday

Lever Gun Fans:
I shot my Henry 45c at 100 yards yesterday and was most pleased with a 200 gr XTP on top of Unique. (Can't recall the grains of powder but it's just a couple tenths less than the max from the charts.) Anyway once I got it on the paper I was doing groups of about five inches. For me that's pretty good.
Fun gun to shoot.

Live well, be safe

That will work well. I would try pushing the Unique to the top end of the data and I think you may get even better results.
