.45-75 Winchester Update 2

Will do. I can measure what I have now. It doesn't seem to get much bigger as I go, yet.

The 20 gr. IMR SR4759 under the 364 gr. (actual weight) ORIGINAL Winchester mold bullet was pretty light in the recoil and blast areas but still shot as high as the 300 gr. jacketed over 24 gr. of the same powder.

I'm now to the point that I actually loaded more than one at a time and I'm not too happy with how she feeds. These were much shorter and fed not quite so well. They do extract and eject ok.

I've shot her enough that I need to take her apart and clean a bit and inspect for possible problems.
