(Notes) This is my first try with RL16. Picked 41.0gr's to see how it compared to a couple of other powders in the same burn range. After the success with the first go-around I thought I would try and repeat it. Lucky me. I did bump it up two grains to 43.0, had no pressure signs. The group did open up to 1-1/4" but its group center had the same POI as the 41.0gr load. I think I will leave well enough alone for a while and see what can do at distance.
The fact that Jellyfish have survived 650 million years, despite not having brains, gives hope to many people. sun-gazing.com
