Let's see some Bullseye Powder recipes for .45acp, say in the 200gr. bullet range. Used to use it, but its been awhile and lost my notes.
Don't know about a snubbie but it will rattle your fillings fired from a 4" 608! I refer to it as my "get the lead out" round. After shooting a hundred or so wad cutters, I finish the day with a wheel load of these bad boys. I don't know if it really helps or not but I like to think that it may blow out a little bit of the lead that has accumulated in the barrel. The recipe is actually one that's posted on Alliants reloading guide so I felt relatively comfortable loading them up.Mulerider93 said:8.4gr of Bullseye? Dang! That would reeeeeaaaaly give you a pop in a snubbie.
Grey Wolf, my "lead cleaners" are 125gr JSP. Like you, I don't think I would feel comfortable with straight FMJ rounds regardless of weight. Just an observation but I seem to have very little to no leading issues with the 608. My wad cutters are cast using Lee's 148gr tumble lube mold. The bullets are made from straight wheel weights with 10% tin added for hardness. As recomended, I use Lee's Alox bullet lube applied twice just to be on the safe side and I always inspect the barrel several times durring a range session to check for abnormal leading. With that said, thank you for your comments and concern. One can never be too careful nor can someone ever have too much good advice.Gray_Wolf said:rainman, I think it does work but it's not recommanded since it increases the preasure in the barrel. Assuming you're talking about shooting FMJ's after lots of lead loads.
I guess after only 100 rounds it shouldn't be that bad though...
