Gday,has anyone tried TrailBoss powder with 180g cast lead bullets in .303?TrailBoss info page does not give a load for this combination but HawksburyRiver Bullet Co.suggested 13.5grn no gas check.I thought of working up a load from 10grnto 13.5grn TrailBoss site gave info for working out the min load by using 70%of the cases capacity from where the bullet sits.Any information please?

Trailboss is much too fast a powder for anything but very light (velocity) loads; however the pressures will likely be close to 'normal' for a .303 round.  Please do not try it without some very specific information for 'indoor' loads.  

The Lyman #50 manual some information for 200 grain cast bullet loads with 'pistol' burn rate powders, but nothing with Trailboss.  

You might check some handload sites for information.
I am always ready to learn. I do not always appreciate being taught.
