My N110 load listed earlier gives me a 2104 average, FWIW

This is my favorite bullet also. On sale this weekend thru weideners, 65 per 500. I use CCI 450 (magnum) primers. Load to 2.1, powder is 110 or 296. Im running 18.8 out of my Daniel Defense 1:8 10" uppers. Very accurate.

Whats the feedback on a longer COAL for a single shot Handi? Or do you folks feel stay around the 2.1 length.

I would definitely experiment with loading longer for your single shot rifle. For supersonic loading you stand to dramatically improve performance on game.

I appreciate that! I will try that.

For a single shot I would seat about .080-.100" of bullet in the neck, or .010" off the lands, whichever is longer, then fill it with 296 and rock&roll. :shock:

But since I've made it this long without getting banned from this site, You should do the same but start at about 21 grains and work up. :mrgreen:

:lol: You have been been answered by one of the forum wizards.Should you choose to follow the path, there are many steps to learn before attempting. As dellet and I were just speaking on the phone and it's fresh, I'll say there is a huge difference between a guy that dumps powder and seats bullets and a guy that understands why his seating depth, powder charge and bullet choice work. It isn't magic, It's knowledge and understanding. Keep the questions coming sir.
