Couple months ago, I picked up another Encore pistol action. At the same time, I ordered another .358 Winchester barrel from Match Grade Machine. This time, for a pistol.
12" Stainless Full Bull Barrel w/ 1-14T
MGM 6-Hole Base
Leupold Rifleman Rings
2.5-8x Weaver Pistol Scope
I handload the 200gr Hornady FTX bullet for my .358 Win rifle barrel. So, for this gun, I wanted to use the 200gr Hornady RN bullet. I had sent MGM a dummy round with an FTX bullet as well as the Round Nose. Both seated to the same Base to Ogive Length (BTO). Went to the range early this morning to test out my various loads.
And the winner is...............
The EXACT same load as used in my rifle barrel. Except...........with a different bullet. Same brass, primer, powder, charge, seat depth...........everything. Ain't that kinda weird? Sure keeps things simple.
