Thanks, is that the max load for this bullet? Do you know what fps is by chance?

"..is that the max load for this bullet? Do you know what fps is by chance?"

The term "max load" for a cast rifle bullet is irrelivant, it's a low pressure load but it's as hot as a hard lead bullet can take.

Speed's in the the 1,700+ fps range. Trajectory is very close to a .22 MRF but with more impact effect and that makes it a great squirrel hunting round.

Sorry I am new to the cast world, thanks for you help, last question I have was about the gas check, this load is for a gas checked bullet correct? I am getting this information for an older fella that hasn't got the resources, so once again, thank you! :)

Please use some type of filler to hold the powder against the primer. I use decron as a filler.
