    Hello
    Do any of you that shoot the big rifles still do the thing of putting in 1 gr. of Red Dot over the primer before you charge it with your normal powder?

    I have some data that show this, but that may be a holdover from the days when primers werent as good as they are now? As the newer books dont show it.

    dual load or "duplex load" are very dangerous respices and in most case give erratic result because that very difficult to get a prefcet position of the two layer one thin colum( light load of fast powder ) one thick colum ( hevay load of slow powder )

    another way is to mix faster and slower powder but that dangerous too

    with big mag primer as Fed 215 or RWS brand and a prefcet flash hole you get normaly enought ignition for big load ( up to 120 grain of 50 cal powder )

    good shooting
