Loaded some 200gr LRN from Matt's bullets.  At 10yds, two hand, center hold, and single action.  First target is 2.4gr W231 and the second is 2.6gr W231.
I am wondering if the brits used the 6:00 hold.
I found it interesting that if I turned the targets upside down they would look just like my results with 158gr LSWC from Missouri Bullet.

Thanks A Sq. I only shot a few as a start.  I always use 10yds at first.  I am loading more and will use 20 & 25yds with a 6:00 hold.  Although I used single action, the double action is just fine.

I went back to the range  and put my target down at 20yds. Matt's 200gr .361 LRN with W231 2.6gr. 32 shots single and double action with a 6:00 hold. Except for a couple, I kept them inside the outer ring. I was pleased with the result, though not as good as a couple decades ago.
Did some SA at 15yds and you can pretty much shoot the bull out. The six o'clock hold made all the difference.
