A 1 - 1 1/2 gr Dacron (polyester stuffing in pillows, toys, etc. Easy to get in fabric stores in bags or sheets as "batting") is better with 5744 or other similar smokeless powders as it won't raise the pressures like a COW filler will. Try 25 gr 5744 with the Dacron filler under any 390 - 420 gr cast bullet(of proper diameter for the TD)for an excellent load.
