Yeah, I like Longshot, but it is a max effort powder IMO. For general range ammo, something a bit faster like the medium burners; WSF, Unique, Universal, even PP will work a bit better. Smoke, not every exp a lot of smoke when I did shoot moly. I avoid them now, jut don't like moly in the bbl, but if you want s oke start shooting lubed lead bullets. Less smoke, stick to plated or jacketed or back your moly loads down w/ a bit faster powder. TG in the 40, not if it were free, but I am a hater.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
