    Ammo and reloading section is about 20 headings down - think you'll have better luck asking there.

    NEW2458,

    You'll find 29gr. of lil'Gun a very boring load with the 325gr.FTX, (2.23 COL) as all of the bullets tend to
    go in the same hole.:laugh::thumbup:

    NEW2458,

    Watch that lil'Gun. It is not as forgiving as some other powders
    and I only use it for the 325gr. FTX and the 300gr. Rem. HP

    I found it was not as flexible as, RE-7, IMR-4198, or W-296.

    If you later decide to try lead bullets W-296 is very flexible.

    Jack...:cool: PS. I use a carbine length gas system
