Does anyone have a 454 casull load for the lee 300 grain lead bullet using Winchester 296 I just purchased the 454 and have only tried accurate #9. The loads with the # 9 seem to be pretty accurate and I get almost the same chronograph results that the manual specifies. I have to confess why I want a load with 296. I donít know if anyone has seen the picture from pistolwhips.com but I want to try and duplicate it and produce a big flame.

I have a Ruger SRH, and have great results from the Lee bullet you mentioned with H110 (30.5 gr.) and magnum primers. Haven't run them through a chronograph, but the accuracy is excellent. I cast these from wheel weights and use the lee tumble lube. I know this isn't a tumble lube bullet, but it seems to work well.

Use this load at your own risk. Safe in my friend's SRH but might not be in yours. I've shot this load before in his gun and had no issues. Make sure to work it up on your own though!
