i have taken the 405gr lyman bullet to 600 with pretty good success,,but i use black powder,,but it will fly

twist in my barrels are 1-18

i have a browning traditional hunter that i think is 1-20 and it really likes the lyman 385gr rn gov bullet

need to know twist rate of your barrel,,,usually a slower twist will like lighter bullets 450gr and down,,and a faster twist for the heavier stuff

not always true but that is a starting point,,i used to shoot with a guy that had an old shiloh that had a 1-22 twist barrel and it would do really well with 550 creedmore style bullets

you just need to see what it likes

that 5744 mentioned is good powder for this cartridge in smokeless
