    My most current is the 550 gr. WFN GC "Hammer" with enough RL-7 or AA2015 for 1650fps...note: my loads are in the same pressure range as loads used in the .450 Marlin in the same action, recoil is severe.

    I use a 350gr Hornady RNFP ahead of a near max load of H4198 as a general use load. At about 2000fps recoil becomes objectionable after about a dozen rounds from the bench.

    I am using the same bullet as chuckbuster but with IMR 3031 56.5 grains worth.

    I have a bunch of M.T Chambers bullets, that I have loaded up and am getting ready to use them. I took Ben's advice and loaded the 420, 500 grainers with RL-7 (I can't recall the amount right now.

    I need 480 load data, with RL-7.

    M.T. Chambers = Ben Hunchak...correct? Or am I confusing two people? But, what I mean to ask is under what brand/name does he market his bullets?

    We're one and the same, the boxes are marked M.T. Chambers at retail stores, but I have trouble keeping them on the shelf and I would rather be shooting then casting!!!....Ben

    yup Canada Post is cheaper than driving and faster than waiting on the next gun show...just

    Currently I'm runnin a Ben's 405gr over 50gr of 3031 in my rolling block.Accuracy is as good as my eyes without spectacles and it feels about right for the iron.
    That said...I believe I'm runnin low...
