Thanks again for running those numbers thru quickload for me. I did a little load development this morning and we have a winner for the .44 mag levergun. 24.5 gr Lil Gun makes 1768 fps avg with a 240 gr XTP from the 20" 38 twist microgroove barrel, its more than fast enough to stabilize the 240s and it is proven on paper at 100 yds. I shot a 2 MOA 10 shot string after load development, including the 2 called flyers upper right of the group. on shot 7 I took the shot with the front bag resting in the center of the forestock instead of the back at the reciever like I had for the first 6, then when shot 8 and 9 went right back to the rest of the cluster, I did shot 10 with the bag in the center again and the bullet flew out of the group and hit with the other flyer. Just a sample of the bedding inconsistencies of a 2 piece stock I suppose.. Oughtta make a good deer and hog gun for the woods.
