Accuracy with the 300gr XTP is excellent, about MOA to 300. Haven't shot much past that as expect most shots to be around 100 if that.

Have set the XTP load aside to focus on cast bullets in sub and supersonic loads, have a vid of ringing the gong at 300 that I'm trying to figure out how to post.
Thanks for the up date. I've been playing with resized 45-70 bullets, 405 grain cast, Hornady 350 grain JRN ( 1467 fps and 1.3" at 100 yards) and Speer 400 grain JFN. Good results with the 405 grain cast and 350 grain JRN at 100 yards. Just loaded up the Speer 400 grain pills over RL-10 but have yet to try them. I extrapolated load date from Speer and Hornady manuals for mid range loads in lever actions.

I pretty much have my loads worked up with the 250 grain FTX and 300 grain XTP-Mag that are shooting sub MOA at 100 yards.
