Hunting Load

For Deer and bigger I use a 300 gr. Hornady HP with 62.0 gr. of Varget. I can tell you in my Browning Hi-Wall it kicks butt on both ends. This is strickly a high wall action or new lever action load. I'm very happy with it. You'll find some additional data on the Hodgdon website.

45-70 Powder

We use IMR 4198 or Rel 7 for 300-500gr boolits in our Encore 15" barreled handgun...works for us. We use data for the 1895 Marlin rifle and it is a bit intimidating with the short barrel, but it's not a round to go plinking with..lol...Bob in Indiana

in my ruger #1 I use 59 grns of VV 133 with a 300 grn bullet. This would yield 3 shots touching in a nice triangle at 100 yds. Hard on the shoulder yes this thing kicks like a mule.
