Loaded and shot 405 grain Shooters Bullets in a 45-70 with 13 grains of Trail Boss. Sighted in my 1895 guide gun with a ghost ring for hogs at 50 yards. Getting 2" - 2 1/2" groups which is all I can do with the ghost ring. Plan on using it on short range hogs in the palmetto's in the swamps...here piggy, piggy, piggy.

Sorry to hijack, where are the palmetto's located? I am looking for a place to hunt some piggy's myself. Trying to do govt/public land until I can find a place to lease.

Thanks for any response and recommendations!!!!

More playing with short shotgun shells. A combo of slugs, buckshot and round balls.


Mini Shells (side).jpg

Shot some of my first batch of 1-5/8" slug shells Saturday. Yes, I did have a few feeding issues in the Mossberg 500. Accuracy was not an issue....... :)

No reloading. I received a large flat rate box of mixed brass from a member off of a facebook group. I mailed 500 223 bullets today for the swap. I can't get on facebook on this Mac so shipping to her return address and can't send tracking info. Small flat rate box is now $7.15, wish I could have shipped saturday.

Reloaded 5 .223 rounds. Problem is was in a hurry and could have ended up with a stuck bullet. Had one I missed putting powder in . Heard a click waited, then ejected. Pulled the bullet and , look no powder. Thing is I never heard the primer go off either, and if it would have went off I would have figured I would have a stuck bullet right now.
Will be using a light and verifying each load for now.
Target was about 20 something yards, red dot, right at dusky dark.

Yeap, one of the most underrated reloading tools...

I can tell you I understand it's use now. I need me a funnel also to pour the powder into the casing with. Something I never thought of but see the need for. Or a die to use my powder dispenser.
