Anybody ever try to duplicate Federal's Match Gold Medal 185 grain jacketed swc's? I've been tinkering with it today and came up with the following recipe:
4.4 grains Bullseye 1.149 OAL .471 crimp
4.5 grains Bullseye ""

I didn't get a chance to test it yet. Have any of ya tried to duplicate this sweet load?

I haven't tried it myself but my QuickLOAD program says you should be pretty close to Federal's published velocity of 780 fps from a 5" barrel.
If you're not a little upset with the way the world is going, you're not paying attention.
