777 label
« on: November 01, 2018, 09:59:33 AM »
The one on the right has a recipe for the ROA, and it was purchased recently this year. The other one has no info on ROA load and has been in my garage for I can't remember even buying it. When did they change the label, anyone know?

One bottle is FFg and the other is FFFg.

I currently have two, one-pound containers of T7 in the 3F (FFFG) granulation.  One was purchased in September of this year, and the other is several years old.  They even have different container designs (the older one has the "jug handle" and the new one is just a round jar), but the two labels show exactly the same recipes as the one on your 3F container.

And for those guest readers as aren't familiar with this issue;
The 2F (FFG), representing (substituting for, in this case) a larger granulation of black powder, is for the larger caliber rifles and shotguns, so it shows recipes (rather stout ones too) for 50 caliber and above, but none for the 45s.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.   James 1:25 (KJV)

So speak ye, and so do, as they that shall be judged by the law of liberty.   James 2:12. (KJV)

I scored a pound of 2F  fairly cheap today so i'll be trying that in my ROA as soon as my hand is healed enough from my 2 surgeries yesterday.

I went by the label with T7 FFFG in the ROA and that load is kind of stout plus the rd balls didn't hit so close together. Tried backing off to 30grs and did a little better at least in my case. Really can't tell it if your to close to the target, but if you back up more than any 10 ft you'll notice. Try it at 20 yards and you'll see the difference. You'll haft to be the judge as to what load works in your gun.
If it's not broke don't try fixin it.

my standard is 5" steel plates at 25 yards.......but i'm going to try turning this revolver into a 50 yard gun

50 yrds shouldn't be a big problem if your hitting at 25. It all takes practice. Getting to know your gun and load.
