Titegroup loads?

OK shooters, what are you doing with Hogdons Titegroup? Bullet and charge. Someone gave me some and I am not sure what it is best at. Thanks!

There are a couple in the sticky topic.  http://www.bullseyeforum.net/t1209-pet-loads-of-top-shooters-loads-from-the-past

I've used it for 230 gr hardball loads.  4.3-4.4 made a nice short line load.  For 50 yards, I went with the max listed in the Sierra manual, which was higher than the the max on Hodgdon's site, so I'll let you look it up yourself. I also tried 4.2 with a 200 gr H&G 68 style bullet.  It chronographed 765 fps and was reasonably accurate at 50 yards.

The only load I have in my records for 200 gr lead s 4.2gr TG attributed to NSK Neil from the old BE-L list a long time ago. 

I've never used TG for anything other than 230gr ball loads. 4.2gr for the short line and 4.7-8gr for the long line work well.

Like the above only use I found for it was 45acp 230 ball loads . 5.0grs with Sie 230 FMJ was accurate enough for long line , but is right at the upper limit for brown box ball . Usable but more abuse than I wanted . Never had any luck with it other than that 1 load , regardless of the cartridge . Much better powders for our game IMHO , like BE , WST , W231 or VVN-310 .

I really like Titegroup, it's basically the only powder I make sure to have many jugs of. I use 4gr. under a cast 185. I run a frame mount, but if you don't, I think you'd *might* need to add a couple tenths for function, depending on how the gun is sprung, etc.

I shoot 3.5 grains of Bullseye with a 200 grain LSWC. While it’s very accurate it is filthy. What would a comparable load/charge be using Titegroup?

Jason, I didn't use Titegroup, but 3.8 of WST works pretty good, about 4 clicks difference on my ultra dot. Cleaner than bullseye and works good with Terry's cast 185 swc. I wonder what 3.5 WST would get you with the 200swc.
