Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

I've tried a lot of things but settled on Western Bullet Co.'s .446 340 gr. lead bullet. I've tried 2400 and Trail Boss powders but 3031 produces the best results. I haven't tried black powder yet but plan to.
