Experience loading for 10.4 Swiss (.41 Vetterli conversion)

I recently picked up a Swiss Vetterli rifle (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vetterli_rifle) that has been converted to centerfire (they were originally .41 rimfire... and you think 22lr is hard to find!).

Does anyone here have experience loading for these things? If so, I'd love to hear what loads you've developed and what results you have gotten.

Slug your bore first. Mine is 427 my friends is 440 groove dia. I ordered a
Lee mold for 44 mag that is 310g weight. Seems a lot of people are using
this in their rifles if you want to feed from the magazine. Other wise try
any 430 dia lead pistol bullet if it fits your bore. Hopfully I will have all my
equipment to try shooting it next week.

Dave I have my load worked out for my 41 swiss. I am using 348 brass with
300 gr. Missouri bullet co. coated bullet with 4759 powder. Shoots really well
at 100 yds. On a good day when I can see the sights well it will shoot about
2 inch 10 shot groups. Have fun!
