I found several cans of 4895 that I had experimented with in my 357 Whelen. I looked in the Speer #10 and found this as a starting load for use in the Marlin and Winchester 1886 using their 405 jacket slug.
Anybody tries this in their rifle?
I don't use it because it's too slow burning. Lyman's47 list 50gr to start and a compressed 59 top. Velocity only 1800. Might be worth a whirl for hogs. The pressures are quite low and I've seen loads using this for the Trapdoor. Beats feeding it to the worms I guess.
