I'm squeezed for time with the season already here and need a tested 1 oz bismuth load. 2 1/2" would be ideal, but 2 3/4" will suffice as I can roll crimp it. Anyone care to share theirs?

TIA

I don't remember the powder charge, it is in the Lyman shotshell manual. Federal hull, Federal 209A primer, Unique powder, SP16 wad, 1 ounce bismuth. It fit with room to spare, and patterned well.

Brewster, I haven't loaded any bismuth yet, but when I do I'm going to start here.
