Well, heres the results of the hornady 160gr round nose flat base bullets I tried.

Best group was with 38.3gr of H4831. Neck sized brass (lee collet neck die) and lee factory crimp die. This is a 5 shot group. Oh yea, its a 1902 dated CG M96.

Dont know what the total length was, but I seated them to the canalure and crimped in place. I dont have any more (shot them all up) so I cant get you any measurements.

This was the starting load in the hornady book I have, and it didnt do any better at the higher powder charges.

I had a little help from a scope, but it is installed with a no drill no tap mount, and I can put it back to original no problems.
