Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I've tried a lot of things but settled on Western Bullet Co.'s .446 340 gr. lead bullet. I've tried 2400 and Trail Boss powders but 3031 produces the best results. I haven't tried black powder yet but plan to.
I recently shot my 1871/84 with 70 grains of Fg and it did well. I read where the military loads was 75 grains. While I was at the range, a competition BP shooter told me the Fg is good powder for long rifles, so I'm sticking with it. I used the Lyman mold for it and forgot how many grains it is, but their is only one Lyman mold for that caliber. Can't say I prefer smokeless over black powder because everything you get to make a smoke cloud with your rifle, you should, especially if there are AR-15's nearby.
