Make sure you put powder in the case..... Very Happy Very Happy

We have a board member from down under who loads the Whisper. I am sure he will weigh in and probably explain my opening line.

One thing I found out about wildcat loads from other's is that unless
the gun is made the same way with the same action, barrels, reamers, gunsmith etc. the load data you get wont ever be good.

Even factory guns that are mass produced shows quirks in their diet.

Best thing to do when working with wildcat is to talk to the inventor (in this case, JD Jones) and find out the safe range of load for a particular powder class. then, you experiment, load, shoot, measure, change, load, shoot, measure....

It is a long road, but it is one of the attraction of a wildcat caliber.

A software came in mind if you want to experiment further in Wildcatting.. the software called QuickLoad, it is an internal ballistic software that definitely worth the money they charge you for it.
With this software, you can find out what is likely to be the upper and lower limit of your loads, and you can interpolate/extrapolate from the shoot results later on.

Good luck mate!
