Right now Iam running a .600 ball with .010 patch. I want to go bare ball ...and figured a .610 ball might work...What do you think ?? Thanks

    Your best load at 50 yards

    Do you folks use the same charge at 25 and 50 yards....or do you find you need a stiffer charge to get a tighter group at 50. Iam shooting a 62 cal Tulle.....65 grains FFF at 25 works good....not so good at 50....but it could be the trigger man . Been loading 65 grains,card,felt pad,.010 patch...
