As a follow up to my heavy bullet question, I decided to swage some lighter bullets and see how they work. So, I went with a paper patched .366" diameter 150gr bullet and 16grs fff black powder. They shot well although a little slow at around 890fps so there is room to improve with some more powder compression. Here's a pretty neat shot catching the bullet in flight.
