BF45. Are your talking about the ACartridge Grade in GOEX? I f ya are I have been shooting it in the .45 cartridge rifles,and in my .50-140. Im not jumpin up and down but I think it dies better in the .50. King
:-D BF45. Just to be absolutely posative,I opened up a can of 1f,2f,3f and Cart. grad. The Cartridge grade falls between the 1f and 2f grain size. Its a lot larger that the 2f Goex,and just smaller than the 1F,and correctly it does have more graphite on it. I am not sold on this powder because of the experiances I have had with it. I had purchased roughly 2o pounds of it last year,and found it to not be that consistant in my loadings of the .45-70. Now,you must understand that I am kinda new to this game,but have been reloading for a lotta years. Just new to the BPCR. I did get it to work ok in my .45-120. That was using 115 of cart. and a Lyman 405 flat point. I got good SDs with it,and less than a two inch group with that loading. In the .50-140,I would have to check,but my best so far have been with the 1f grade of Goex. My best loads in the .45-70 have been using 2f or 3f shooting 65 grns to 70 grns,with a .060 over powder,and an SPG lubed projo. The Projo is the Lyman Postell,and mine come out with WW around 527 grns. Without looking at my info I think the Chrony on that is about 1150fps. 8) 8) King
