    My 22lb Wolff spring, and Black Jack buffer is in, brand NIB 45 Camp Carbine is on the way (found in MN!), Redfield Wideview 2X7 scope is on the way, and I've settled on Berry Bullets 185 grn HBRN for reloading into once-fired LC Match Brass...WHEW! (hows THAT for a run on sentence?). Any last suggestions for powder/weight? I'd like to get the best possible accuracy I can...out to about 100yds or so...but I DON'T want to beat this little gun to death doing it...:D

    I would not use lead alloy slugs, mine didn't like 'em. did OK with plated but best with Rem. Golden Sabres and Hornady C/T's. I like Power Pistol powder. and WST.
