Hello Huvius,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm very pleased with this rifle and its shooting. Apparently the lead paper-patch bullets give a better seal in the bore than the Hornady jacketed bullets based on the higher velocity with the same powder charge.

And, although the lead bullets shot well, they are a little too hot. Although the cases gave easy extraction, they expanded slightly. When I inserted a fired case back into the chamber, it required a lot of thumb pushing on the case head before the action would close. By contrast, the jacketed bullet fired cases could be replaced into the chamber without any pushing, and the action would close freely. Next time I'll try reducing the powder by 2 grains for the paper patch bullet load.
