Was burning powder yesterday, this time with John's all around carry load of 13 grs HS-6 under 250/260 gr bullet. (In this case Lyman 454190) I wasn't shooting up to par at the "bench" (actually from hood of jeep) but still managed 5 rds into a playing card at 25 yds and 5 rds on a "deer's ribcage sized" box at 88 long paces. This load has extremely uniform velocity, (SD 15 fps) averaging 1071 fps from my 7.5" BH, no leading and is real pleasant to shoot. I fired 75 rds in testing and wished I had loaded more to plink with! A very fine all around load for this weight bullet, one that will become my "standard" too...Thanks once again John!
