I found something that works FAR better than Dawn.
I'm using 1 Tablespoon Woolite and 1/4 teaspoon citric acid in the big FART.
So just a direct replacement for Dawn.
A variety of swaged bullets (some experimental) in the lead platter at 50 yards.
Testing the 26 gram Shot-mini at 10 yards
It may feel like I'm milking this, but I thought I'd try some different powder charges.
►Slug gel dissection (unlisted video, too long to add to this one):
I got them down to 1200 f/s, and though they didn't group great.
►Gel shows that 1200 f/s is too slow. 1250-1300 f/s is where it's at.
►415 gn (total) @ 1200 f/s = 1327 ft-lbs
►Pure lead would probably mushroom more consistently.
►I might try slowing them further. Who knows, I might find a stable velocity where they expand.

I may be crazy, but I'm not insane!
Mostly swaging related with a bit of this and that thrown in here and there.
