Been out in the shed, perusing my never ending quest to get all my rifles shooting "spot on".
This morning I can truthfully say that for the 444 Marlin.

The first 2 shots landed bottom left of the foto. (Old stock/barrel warmers.)

The next 3 shots amazed me.
Absolutely no powder burns. 90mts, from over the bonnet of the.Landcruiser.

Make up your oun opinion, but I'm exceedingly happy.

Recipe
49.2gr Benchmark 2 Powder
AOL 2.575"
Federal 210 large primers
280gr Woodleigh Projectiles
RP cases
Lee Facrory Crimp (Heavy)

I can make the AOL a little bit longer, but will not as I am chasing consistency, and remember that the reloading cradle may differ from rifle to rifle

Cheers
Bucky

Bucky, when you say heavy Lee Factory crimp, what is your die setting. 1/2 a turn more? I don't know how heavy I can go if I try to adjust the crimp on my Lee dies.
