    8mm Remington Magnum with IMR 8133

    I'm getting 3000 fps with 83 gr 7977 in a 27" barrel and 220 Sierra. I worked up from 77 gr, and went to 84 gr. but this is my accuracy load. I have several groups that cut 1/4 MOA at 200yds and always stays in the 1/2 MOA range. This rifle has a bull barrel, and a double shoulder sling for...

    45-70 Bullet for Bison Hunt

    Paper patched pure lead will handle velocity up to at least 2000 fps in a strong action (I shoot a custom 420 gr 40 caliber at 2065 with this combo in a 405 bolt action), and will expand to double caliber down to below 1000 fps. pure lead doesn't fragment. I've seen .54 caliber round balls...
