As long as the loads are reliable and accurate in your gun, you should be good to go. Most any load that will function reliably will group in the 10 ring at 25 yards and is good for sustained fire. A good bullet design is one of the biggest factors in good accuracy at the long line. Two very popular bullets are the Nosler and Zero 185 gr. jacketed hollow points. You don't say whether you are using a red dot or iron sights.

OK Thanks... Just wondered if that was enough powder and sticking with the lead so I can get used to it before buying jacketed bullets... yes using ultradot scope

If your gun cycles good then your good to go, thats a well established load combo provided your 200 grain bullets are of a good quality.

All guns are a little different. My slide mounted Ultra Dot wad gun will function in warm weather with 3.8 grains of Bullseye, but in cold weather, it isn't 100% reliable. That's why I use a 10-12# recoil spring and 4.0 grains of Bullseye with a 185 gr. swaged lead swchp bullet.

I buy them. You can get quality swaged bullets from Zero (www.rozedist.com) or Magnus (www.magnusbullets.com).
