Hello, riverwalker76. You can't go wrong by starting with lower loads. When I first started shooting my Riflesmith .40-70 str. (2 1/2"). I called Hodgdon & they gave me suggested start loads for cast bullets with H4895 & Varget. Just to be safe, I started a few grains below these loads..experimenting proved these lighter than recommended start loads were more accurate than suggested ones. My rifle is a 10lb. match rifle..If I start pushing much over 400grs. of lead it hurts! My most accurate bullet for 100yd. shooting weighs 300grs. Best of luck!
