DO NOT USE SMOKELESS POWDER IN ANY MUZZLELOADER OTHER THAN THE SAVAGE
With time on my hands I’ve been going through my Savage Files and came across a section with previous load data listing. Now what caught my attention was 4198 propelling a 250gr bullet at 2800fps using a standard Savage BP. To me this obviously confirms the results Reloader22 was getting with 4198. Again, an all copper 250gr bullet with 2800fps would be one ideal load. The interest for me is how much I can tweak this load with one of my recessed BP and using an average 20lb load resistance. But this part of powder testing is on hold until I finish with 2400 and find a supplier for 4198. Now I’m really looking forward to getting to this point of testing. Alas the range is still not open for now for continued testing.
