I fit 37 gr by volume of BMZ, compressed under a fiber wad, CCI 300 and Starline. I couldn't get a read on the '73 repop, but the 0.427 Hunters Supply were very accurate using this load. The Cimarron 'P' 4 3/4" ran 907 avg/35.3 Std with the same load. I've settled on 35 as my standard.

In two 6-stage outings with SASS, these rounds were completely reliable, and I did not do any cleaning between stages. The smoke obscures the targets, and it really slows you down on a still day. Next time out, I may load the "cowboy" 7 gr. Unique and give the RO a break. But I like the BMZ.
