    I have some Cast Performance 395gr hardcast gas checked bullets coming from Grafs. Anybody got a good load for this bullet using H110 or 2400? I'll be using new Starline cases and CCI Magnum primers in a 7.5" Ruger SRH. I've been loading the 240gr and 300gr XTP Mag for the .454 for awhile but never this big a bullet.

    Load Swap.com is a good source of info and I've used plenty of loads from there. Any form of reloading always carries risks, do so at your own. Checking any info that you see on the net is the first thing that anyone should do.:)

    Thanks for the replies, That info actually seems about right, corresponding with with the loads I've used for 300's and 240's, but taking into account the extra weight of the 395gr bullet. Any more is greatly appreciated.
