Wind was 10-15mph at 95 degrees. None of these loads showed any signs of pressure in my gun. These are reference only and should be worked up to from a reduces charge.

I have no doubt yours will shoot as good as mine! Dave was a pleasure to work with, I was like an expectant father but he guided me thru the process.
