    Want to load .45 Winchester Magnum for a 16"(+) TC Contender.
    I have some Hard Cast Lead 260 grain bullets.
    Am a little leary of driving Hard Cast lead down 16" of barrel.
    Afraid of unacceptable leading if I drive them too hard
    and I DO want stout loads ( what's the sense in wimpy .45 Winchester Mag)

    How fast can I drive them ( the 230 hcl )?
    What powder and loads are suggested.

    If I abandon the 260 Hard Cast lead....
    What bullets, Powder, and loads are suggested?
