That was off a rest, I don't want to give the impression that I could hold that tight a group off handed at 20 yards. I haven't sighted the revolve yet I was just going for group size. I'll probably load some more with a lighter charge to see what happens. My goal when reloading is a group with all holes touching.

Like the time a squirrel was peeping at us over a limb, out of the top of a very tall hickory tree. I did a head shot with my Colt Woodsman Match Target. I put the firearm back in the holster and didn't say a word.. ( I was in my 20's and had good eyes)

My uncle just stood there with his mouth open..

I didn't tell him it was the Luckiest shot I had ever made...

It's not a lie IF you don't say anything and just let people jump to conclusions, is it ??

Still Good shooting,,

I've made a few of those kind of shots in my life for the most part they were no thought process instinct shots.

I guess your right about lie part but I think I'll avoid that path.

2-2-96 should work fine at 45ACP velocity. I'd slug the barrel and go .001-.002" over that ONLY IF your cylinder will allow it. If not you can have the cylinder reamed or go with the cylinder size. If you decide to cast, you can water drop 2-2-96 and harden them up a few points. I use a soft 10.4bhn mix for my 45ACP.
