That's what I was kind of getting at to begin with. I was always taught to never use rifle powder in a pistol or pistol powder in a rifle. Just didn't want my rifle to go boom the wrong way!

Not to worry.

you SHOULD have been to not to use rifle powder in pistol LOADS and not to use pitol powder in rifle LOADS.

I use pistol powder in cast bullet rifle shooting often.

H110 is actually both a pistol and rifle powder.

Lol! My pea sized brain just registered the word LOADS. Thank you for using all caps! That is how it was explained to me but for some reason I was thinking powder. It all makes perfect sense now. Thanks again!
