I recorded most of this video more than six months ago, but I am just now finishing it and posting it.

The cylinder throats on my EAA Big Bore Bounty Hunter .45 Colt revolver measure .4565". The factory lead bullets are smaller than that which leads to leading and inaccuracy. I decided to reuse the components of some factory ammunition I had on hand, but improve the performance in my revolver with my own cast bullets which measure .457".

Has to be fun! If I was going to guess, I'd have guessed that powder was Bullseye, but guessing on powders is not always a good idea. 5 Gr Bullseye is IIRC a starting load for that weight of cast bullet.

I've never used Bullseye, but I know several folks that swear by it.
