    I have shot a lot of different loads over the years, but rarely more than one at a time. As long as this load is working, I will likely stick with it.

    I was going to get some 4350 but wasn't sure. I have been seeing many loads using this powder and thought it would be worth a shot but most of the ones I seen were used in 22" barrels and it looked as if it is better suited for the 22's and not 24" so I wasn't sure. All I have right now is 4831sc.

    Louisiana. If you are in the highest level of the state deer management assistance program, the state gives you an extra 15 days of rifle season after everything else closes on January 31.
