Finally took time to load and shoot some between rain storms this weekend. 60 grain jacketed and 55 grain GT cast hollow points regular lube and powder coated. Used several powders, shot 50 yards and uder from bench but not solid rest. Gun scoped, 256 and 25/20 cylinders. Revolver shoots tight enough groups with almost every load to squirrel hunting past 50 yards. Reeder and Huey are great enablers.

Set back

As a side note, setback is always a question with bottle neck rounds in revolvers. The 22 jet was educational in that years ago. Have also shot other bottle neck rounds in revolvers over the years and experienced it first hand. The Coyote Classic in 256 and 25/20 has had NO set back issues at all. Even with clean, lubed chambers just to see if it would. Mr. Reeder has done his homework.

It seems the little neck grips the chamber walls then

relaxes to allow easy extraction. I used some .300 GNR cases way past their normal life (maybe 15-20 reloads?) and they can get sticky as elasticity goes away. Everything can wear out. I had some hot loads I was experimenting with and found if I shortened the necks on the cases by 50% the extraction with the same load was notably easier. Just an observation. Now a .300 GNR has very thick sturdy brass thickness, being made from cut off .30-30 win., so others might exhibit differing traits. FWIW
