Does anyone know the bullet weight and/or specified ballistics for this loading? I have only seen this with the “DC 44” headstamp. Do other years exist?

Thanks,
Dave

bullet weight is 250.5 grains
powder weight is 7.0 grains

Bob,

Thanks for that information!

This is what the Dominion box looks like. (Not my image and blatantly stolen off of the 'net, but don’t have my camera handy now to take a pic of my example.)
