    Hi guys, I recently got a Carl Gustav so far i have shot about 30 rounds through it just for fun, using 140gn cast bullets and trailboss!
    Accuracy was ok, but I want something with a bit more muzzle energy! I have some AR2207 sitting in the cupboard, I have had a lot of luck with it in the 30-30. The Lyman cast bullet manual list 18-26 grains of IMR4198, I know this is similar to H4198/AR2207. Would it be safe to reduce load using AR2207 in this range? Am I right in thinking H4198 (AR2207) is a bit faster than IMR4198 and should therefore keep it a couple of grains lower?


    Also what powder would anyone here recommend?
