Greetings,

You are referencing a manual translated into English from either French or Flemish.

Also, many of the bullets available in Europe have strange abbreviations. Again, it is in the translation.

Take note of the bullet weight and powder charge. Next, does your handload match the published velocity?

By the way, I tinker with several of the Vectan powders. Interesting color coding and shape of the granules...

Cheers,

Dave

Translation from French… Hollow Base in French is Base Creuse.   So a WC-BC is the same as HBWC….

I was going to post a flippant remark to the effect that 'BC' maybe meant 'Base Cavity'.

Direct translation, 'Dig'.
