with that load i can stack 4 or of 5 shots in the bottom of a beer can at 200 yards and have won several bets with that load.
I thought that Hodgdon stated that you had to decrease the max charge volume by 15% when using T7 versus black poweder. I know the T/C is approved for 150gr of BP, so this would translate to 127.5gr of T7 (150 x 0.85 = 127.5).
You may have looked into this and found that an expert has deemed it safe. I just wanted you to be aware that it appears to go against the manufacure's saftey warnings.
