View Full Version : Gentlemen.......2nd Question
I have a repro 74 Sharps. I cast the NEI version of the RCBS 458-405-FN-GC bullet which weighes 420 grs. from my mould & alloy ready to shoot. I'd like a load that does 1200-1400 fps using 2400 powder. Suggestions????????
Thanks and God Bless,

creeker...looking at my records, I have two loads for the .45/70 with 2400.
457122HP 21.5 grains gives me 1415 with a dacron wad
On the other extreme, the 462560 weighing in over 500 grains with 25.0 grains gave me 1295 FPS.
Based on this data, somewhere between the two, you'll find what you're looking for.
With a 405 grain, you may have to use a dacron filler as that's not much powder in that large case. The 462560 is seated so deep that it doesn't need a filler.
These were fired in a M1895 Marlin so seating depth was kept to 2.500"/beagle
Thanks beagle. I'll print this.
Got it Buck..............Thanks
