Over to the barn 1/15 and 1/16/20

Post by Vaquero » Wed Jan 15, 2020 6:53 pm

It's been a messy day misty rain all morning, this afternoon it was off and on.
But I did manage a little trip over to the barn.

Trying out a few pugnose that's been all the rave. :lol:
Had some a buddy made from an accurate mold 180's.
The pugnose was loaded with 11.5 grs 2400, and the others 9.4 Blue dot. These bullets are quite similar.

Then I tried some 8.5 Unique with a 255 fn.
A 7.4 gr Red dot with a 200 fn
And 10.0 gr Unique with a 255 fn.
6 shots

Right before the rain I did manage an one knee shoot.
Was 50 yds. 11 assorted rounds, 200 to 255, and who knows what loads most were mild and a couple not so much. :shock:

Pug nose looks the best to me. Just have to make a windage adjustment. I have some of those coming soon!
Where did you find your load data for the cast 180's?

Well the BD is something I worked up some years back, but never did tweak it.
But I was consistently hitting a 4' gong with it.
The 2400 I stole from one of you guys. :o :lol:
11.4 was the target but I kept dropping 11.5 so I just went with it. ;)

Gonna load up some more pugs. ;)

Im like Forty those Pugs will hit the gong consistently to. I bet if that was a scoped gun that group would be a lot tighter. Whats the distance there Randy 50 yards.

Iron sights, 50 yards with some new loads= pretty darn good! I'm going to TRY and get out today with the .45 Colt.

I got my data from the Lyman #4 Cast Bullet manual. It goes from 11.1gr 2400 to 12.3gr 2400. I just settled on 11.5 and it works.
