Nice. Looks like you just need to dial in on the powder charge that works best. Still all kill shots though as is. Any pics of the bullets themselves?

What is CPP Powder? Is it this stuff from Wideners?

no,that's not it. CPP stands for Comericial Pistol Powder which Wideners was selling some years back. i bought 16 lbs. of it. it looks like HS-6 to me. i have no bullets heads to take a pic of as they are all loaded but plan to swage up some more soon and will take some pics for you fletch_medic.

Not bad...not bad at all! Nice groups for your first test shots of handloaded and home-swaged bullets.
