    I've got their book if you need data

    I too have a Barnes book but I'm thinking it's a bit dated like from the 90s.

    H4350
    H4831 & sc

    I will not buy any other powder than Hodgdon. Except Trail Boss.

    Thats just how how I roll.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried any others? You may be limiting yourself. No two rifles are the same. Some like it this way, some like it that. We as one cylinder mortal humans may not know precisely what this way or that way may be, but such differences do exist. That's why most old loaders try a variety of powders.

    From what I know of you on here, I would bet my next retirement check if you can do something better you'll do anything you believe will give you something better. If you want to experiment powder varieties is a good place to start.

    Is it all X bullets or TSX? #4 is the most current, tan cover, 90% TSX data

    Wait let me look.

    No, it's even older than that, a Number 2. It's all X Bullets. XFB-Flat Base, XBT-Boattail, and solids, which aren't called X bullets so I don't know, I guess they don't have a fancy designation. Don't see any TSX in it. I think this was a few years before TSX. This book is OLD!

    I try to keep it simple.

    No desire to "experiment" with powders. The ones I have seem to work pretty darn well with what I have.

    Uh-oh...yer turning into the reloading version of a "Mopar Guy."
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Diehard Chrysler (aka "Mopar") car fans - particularly, those into the classic Chrysler vehicles - are notorious for refusing to look at/consider owning *anything* that isn't a Chrysler product, no matter how awesome it may be.

    Of course the real problem with these Barnes bullets is the accuracy
