I would like to get a starting point on what powder and charge weight to use in fire lapping a new Browning model 1886 in 45-70.  I ordered the bullets and lapping compound from Beartooth Bullets.  I also received their Technical guide book describing the technique to use.  Any help as to loads would be greatly appreciated as I would prefer to avoid getting bullets stuck in my barrel.  Thanks for your time and God bless.  Rob

Rob,

Five (5.0) grains of Red Dot will do the trick, when the bullets are seated as per the Tech Guide, seated deeply with all the bullet's bearing surface contained within the brass cartridge case, and looking something like an overgrown wadcutter load!

Let us know how your project goes!

God Bless,

Marshall
