Referencing my post about my 50-95 saga, I clocked three loads I had used in that post. I’m using  330 grain bullet and WLRM primers.

(CORRECTIONS TO VELOCITY 10/21/21)

20 grains of Trail Boss - 1373 FPS
35 grains of 5744 - 1443FPS
52 grains of pyrodex “P” - 1452 FPS

To date, “P”, gives the best accuracy.

Adding to my post of velocities (corrected 10/21/21), I've added 3 velocities measuring by volume. I used 72 grains by volume of Triple 7 2f, Triple 7 3f snd Pyrodex "P". Loads still used the 335 grain bullet and WLRM primer.

T7 2f - 1548 fps
T7 3f - 1631 fps
"P" - 1473 fps

I only fired one shot each across the chronograph just to get a rough idea on speed. The weight of those volume charges of all three powders was between 53 and 54 grains. Even between the 2f and 3f.

I only fired 4 shots of each string at 50 yards. I had vertical stringing which was me (3 inches) but the horizontal dispersion hovered around 1.5 inches. Another issue is cases in my old Uberti barrel were 1.94 inches long. The new Winchester Barrels chamber seems to have a shorter neck compared to the Uberti. So my cases should be 1.88 inches long, which is the exact length of TenX cases I procured.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION - I fiddled with some  50-90 cases and during the forming process I came up with a case length of 1.93 inches. Probably it would be prudent trim to 1.92 inches.

Did you use any filler with your 5744 load? How did it work?

Sorry for the late reply. Sometimes I use a filler. I have a batch that I am going to try this week. I’ll let you know.

The filler does not all burn up. I fired ten shots and had 3 circumference neck splits. I’m pulling my loaded rounds apart.

What do you use for filler? I've found laundry lint from a load of towels works real well, just a thumbnail size pinch.

Polyester fill for pillows.  That is what I was told to use by the internet. I failed to mention that at 100 yards the accuracy was not as good as without the filler. My guess is that since it is not consumed, it affects the base of the bullet exit. I am not an expert on fillers at all.

NOW, lint is a great idea. I never would have thought about that.

Got me wondering about navel lint too!  Haha.

Some years back when I started down the road of trying a filler, I came across the PuffLon product and tried it.  Have stuck with it and had good results.  To my knowledge it is the only product sold as a filler and seems to do the job well.  I use it in couple different cartridges for cast loads, including the 45-75.  Just a suggestion. 

keep us posted on how things go on the load work.

P.B.

I have been trying to buy puffalon for the last year. Never available. I have only heard good things about it.
