I hope not to lose any, they are extremely shiny!!

I have not done a lot of load development, but my Russians really like a 220 grain lead gas check sized to .313 with 10 grains of promo.

I based this off of "The Load" 10 grains of Red Dot works for anything under a 100 yards in a 30 caliber round. I find it to be a fairly pleasant load to shoot... I also use it in my krags. I have also used it for long range, but have to really plan for some drop.

Do you use Trailboss in your Nagant ?

I have a Tula 91/30 dated 1944, that was given to my Business Agent.
We took it to the range once, when it was his with Soviet surplus ammo, it was not pleasant to shoot.
After three rounds, I was done, it's been a wall hanger since it was handed (given) to me (along with the remaining ammo.)
I guess Dennis was done too  ;)

Thinking about it marking a Smith and Wesson especially an American .44 Colt should be a sin. FWIW the original Russian cartridge used a 275 grain outside lubricated bullet. The cartridge as we know it now didn’t come out until the late 1880’s.

I think the higher angle of the camera makes it look closer than it really is.  Everyone is very conscious of where the dogs are.  I let several low flying birds go, due to that.

Compression is a fact of life in reloading with black.  I don't reload for an original Spencer, but do for one of the replicas in 56-50.  In Starline brass I can load as much as 40 grains, but it is compressed with a Montana Precision compression die, after a wad is placed over the powder before I seat the bullet.  I adjust the compression die so the bullet is in contact with the wad and does no compression when seated.  This is the same basic method I use for loading 40-65 and 50-70 with black.  Original loads used some compression.  The amount of compression can vary based upon powder brand and granulation.

I have a day off. ;D

I took her over to the nieces so she can spoil Amelia who is almost 2 and hasn't seen here since sometime in the fall.  I told them if she causes trouble to call me or 911.  Would almost be funny because it would be the same station and they have to ask her why she wasn't home.  ::)

Day 35 at home, Mri Tuesday was good.  No cancer appointment till April.
Great news.
