Big Grin Range report

I may have solved the accuracy problem with the .44-40 carbine, it has a tight chamber and oversized barrel, .429.I made a .428 sizer.
I got 3 " at 25 yd with factory .426 jacketed bullets, 1 1/2 to 2" at 25 yd with .427 cast.
The .428 is much better, 230gr swchp gc, 25gr H110, 1610 fps, 3 touching and 1, 1" high at 50 yds with original sights.

45-70, bullets sized .4595. 2.5x scope, handi rifle, 22" barrel.
210gr rhp gc, 13gr Herco, 1225fps, 2" at 50 yds,
25gr H110 , 1600fps, 2" at 50 yd
320gr rfn gc, 30gr IMR 4198, 1425fps, 1.5" at 50yd, 32.5gr, 1525fps, 1.5" at 50yd,
35gr , 1590fps, 1.7"
500gr 3R gc, 30gr IMR 4198, 1380fps, 1.5" at 50yd,
35gr IMR 4198, 1610fps, 1.5" at 50yd,
39gr H 4895, 1430fps, 1.8" at 50yd,
39GR H 4831,990FPS, 2" at 50 yd.
IMR 4064, 30gr, 1050fps, 2" at 50yd,
34gr, 1140fps, 1.7" at 50yd.
The little rifle is doing very well on accuracy, the 35gr of 4198 really lets you know it when it goes off in the 7 1/2lb rifle.
