Dead Head, Joe LaFives was involved in writing the WBAS stages. His round count for WBAS is correct. The round count on the Website is for the main Cowboy Match.

To quote Larsen Pottifogger:

"This year there are 133 shooters signed up for the WB match which is the most that have ever shot the WB match anywhere in the world. "

GJ, what fps are you getting with the 4227 load?

About 1500 FPS +/-  (estimated, haven't shot that one over chrony)

And about 1550 FPS on the 5744 (per instruments)

Good luck, GJ

RCBS has a nice 170 grain RNFP mold in .323 diameter if you want to cast your own.  I make them about 16 Brinnell hardness (wheelweights with 25% linotype in it), Hornady gas check, White Label Carnuba Red lube, and load over 20 grains of 5744 or 18 grains of 4227.   I can usually keep those under 2 MOA.

Not a lot of commercial sources for cast rifle bullets, and 8MM are not a common one even if you find someone casting.  Getting them from Hoodoo or Purcella is an easy way to start.

Good luck, GJ
