    I just got a .264 Win Mag and a .358 Norma mag with a lot of unprimed new brass and dies for each. I want deer and antelope load for .264 and bear and elk load for .358 with possible African future use on Safari. Please head me in right direction with bullet and powder from those who had field experience with these oldies.:confused:

    I can't help you on the Norma,great choice in calibers,but I have just started loading the 264,my research suggests powders in the slow to very slow.4831 class(RL22,N-160,N-560)for the 125 or 129 bullets. The standard big game load is the 140,in this you slow down,H870,AA8700,RL25,H1000 or IMR7828.Some have mentioned WC872,surplus.The difference in drop between 140 and 125 at 500yds. is 52 "to 58",6" not much with much greater hitting power. Speeds of plus 2900(3200 is often quoted) for the 140.Choice of bullet should be governed by those speeds.good luck and please post your results.
