Lee REAL 320gr load info

Looking at buying some Lee REAL .517 320 gr bullets to try in the muzzle loader but would like some load info and velocities on this bullet.

this one?

MOLD D C 50CAL-320

SKU: 90396

I've pushed it with 110 grains of pyrodex select. It shoots 2" groups @ 100 yards. I have NOT had a shot on a deer yet, maybe never will. But I suspect it would flatten one in a hurry.
The more people I meet, the more I love my dog

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?

I run 90 grains of Pyrodex RS. One deer shot with it, bang-flop. She kicked once and the work started. I was a long way from the pickup truck.

Lee real

I shoot the same load 90gr Pyrodex RS out of a CVA Hunterbolt took while to get it on paper but had a 3 shot group at 100 yards that was just over 2 inches.I dip mine in lube made of 50/50 beeswax and crisco and leave it on the boolit load it that way and use a small piece of a dryer sheet soaked in borebutter as a wad.Wipe off the excess lube at the muzzle crown.I haven't spent much time with it maybe but it will do the job if I do mine.I started with 70gr first and even in this light rifle it has very mild recoil.
