I have been reading this board for several months now and have gained a wealth of information from this forum.  

Is there anyone who makes/sales an intermediate power load in the 1600-1700fps range using the 405 gran bullet that doesn't cost more than &#3630 for a box of 20.

From my experience the manufactures either offer mild (trapdoor strength) or hot (Buffalo Bore, Garrett) rounds.  Is there an interest in a intermediate load (1600-1700 fps/405gr) for use against large game (i.e. elk/moose)?  If you would like to see an intermediate load developed and offered for sale, what would you recommend?  Please be specific on the type of bullet (hard cast, soft point, etc.)

For those of you that reload what type of intermediate load do you use using the 1600-1700 fps / 405 gr bullet criteria? Please be specific on your componets, charge weight, and accuracy.

In addition, has anyone used the Remington 405gr soft point on elk/moose and what was your experience with it?

Thank you in advance for your input and opinions.

I load my own 45-70 rem 405gr with 52gr IMR-3031
W-W cases CCI-200 primers Lee Factory crimp-1800fps
This will take out an elk no problem.Install a pachmayr recoil pad on your gun and it tames the hot loads.These loads are for a modern Marlin 1895 lever gun.Check out Marlins web page under big bore rifles.

COR BON 45/70+P AMMO IS LOADED TO 1650 FPS WITH 400 GR.FMJ AND 1800 FPS FOR A 350 GR SP IT SELL FOR 22.00 RETAIL WHICH IS JUST A BUCK OR 2 MORE THAN YOU WILL PAY FOR ANEMIC REM/PMC/FED AND WW FACTORY FODDER. THE CORBON VELOCITIES , I WOULD SAY ARE MEDIUM (LEVEL2) I WOULDNT SHOOT THE CORBON IN ANYTHING OTHER THAN A MARLIN ,A NEW 1886 OR A RUGER
