Hello Gents,

I need a .742-.745 lead bullet for a Joseph Lang double rifle built in 1873. It has a very slow twist. I am getting about 3 inch groups at 50 yards with round balls and 4 drams of ffg. Does anyone out there have some bullets lying around or a mould suggestion?

Thanks!

Is the rifle not grouping, or not regulating with the round balls?

If it's slow twist, I would experiment some more before going to a bullet. You'll need a short one with the slow twist.

I can fix you up with a mould if you need one.
