Still working on that .256 Falcon (.25-35 AI)

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

I had a busy weenkend. I did shoot several loads up to 35.0 grs. Reloader 15 and a 86 gr. from the 12" G2. Accuracy was delightful at around 1" @ 100 yds. for 3 shots when in my groove. Recoil was mild.

My speed was a little less than I had expected but I had no pressure signs at all and I was working up loads. My loads ran just under 2300 fps but were a bit wide on the extreme variation FPS. I think I need more powder or perhaps hotter caps than the WLR. I checked my old records of shooting a std. .25-35 and 14" Encore. I got 2500 fps with a hefty charge of H4895. That will be my next run along with H322.

Not done with Rel. 15 just getting started. 12" is not much barrel to work with, I'd prefer at least 14" for the handgun, but it sure is handy.
