.454's or .457's... your 58's? My Pietta calls for 54's and my Ruger calls for 57's. I cast severa 57's and shot the Ruger the other day. From 30 yards bench rest with 30 grains 3f and a six oclock hold I was placing them all on a pie plate and the more I shot the more the groups tigtened up. I'm going to try the 57's in my Pietta from the same distance and powder load. I loaded some last night and had a noticeably more consistent shaving ring from the .454's. What's been your experience?

I don't shoot Rugers but the .457's will work in the Pietta. They'll just be a little harder to load.
