Are you shooting hard cast bullets, if so you may find softer bullets like desparado bullets from cowboybullets.com work better.
Just a thought, worth about as much as you paid for the advice.  My rifle seems to like them enough to hold 4 inches at 100, which with a short barrel and 65 year old eyes is not too shabby for a first attempt at finding a good load.

I've only shot hard cast out of it, from several brands, plus I played with some jacketed hollow points.

I might have to try some soft bullets.

Anyway, it seems to like those lighter truncated cone bullets fairly well, and I'm ok with their accuracy.

Have a Dillon 1050 set up for that load, but I never seem to have time to go shoot (plus there isn't a decent range close by anymore).
