Re: New to me CPA .40-65 - need load suggestions

Hard to give you any definitive advice other than to say the only way to know is to try the 3f.

My first mould for the 40-65 was a Lyman 410663 snover bullet. Very accurate bullet for mid range. Plenty of grease grooves for blow tubing.

I've never had one pop out compressing with the wad in place but I have had the bullet pop back up when seating in unsized cases. Just ...

Re: Starting Load Needed

Object is simply to get them...

50-90 chamber dimensions

Does anyone have a copy of the chamber dimensions for the Winchester 50-90 BPCR ?
MY book From Wayne must be earlier as it isn't included.

Re: misfires

This was a later Winchester 45-90 with 30" barrel. I believe it was unfired when I bought it and not sure I ever did fire it before modifying it.
