Starline brass
CCI 300 primers
180 grain TC HardCast

P.S. I have 800X for hot loads, Just looking for fun/accurate loads at the range or smaller game hunting with BD.
So far I'm reading that 9.0 grains of BD puts 180 grain Hard Cast at about 1050 fps and is a great plinking/target load that isn't rough on brass. I know I could go alot higher but My original post was for a target/hunting load. Ill be experimenting with higher velocities using 800x.
