My standard 158gr LSWC with 2400 @50 yd standing was really nicearound 3" cluster after adjusting sight. I have a long wait to bench twst it for real accuracy but again will have time to gather up some loads to give a good workout with my Rossi 92. I am betting the 2400 and H110 is going to be the most accurate of any powder as usual but other powder do have my attention.
Right on target. That answers my question.
and that 3" cluster at 50 yards off hand is a sweet number; nice shooting.
Standing is a different world than my bench resting.
I don't want the other side of your powder bet. I've used 2400 and H110 successfully with lots of different bullets myself. They are excellent in this caliber for reaching higher velocities with accuracy.
Lately I've really liked the Vihtavuori powders; especially the N340. It's a touch faster than the H110 and doesn't get the velocity; but, the accuracy, cleanliness, and consistency has amazed me. Half again more money(it's from Finland), but powder price is the least of my expenses with shooting.
Appreciate your response,
