  •  Trail Boss rocks for subsonic rifle rounds, iirc (7+ / 0-)

    the last I loaded was 10g under a 185g cast hard sized to 310 or so in the 30-06....Accurate and quieter than a 22...

    Mostly I use 2400 but both Red Dot and Unique work well also for a bit more velocity but still minimal recoil.....Ed Harris has done some excellent work on cast rifle loads and his universal loads really do work.

    I spent my working years in garages as did pops so I have a quite decent stash of wheel weights which work great and can be hard or soft, water drop to quench and wait a week and you are about 22 brinell, air cool for 7-12.  

    Plus molten metal is just fun to work with.... If I had to buy my lead I would probably just buy the bullets except for a few special projectiles I really like and are hard to get like the Keith style wadcutters.....
