I posted this request before and got a lot of good data. What I'm looking for is a load for the .454 using the BTB 355gr bullet at about 1400fps preferrably with Accurate or Hodgdon powders. Thank you gentlemen.
HI DAVE, I WOULD STICK WITH THE H110/W296 FOR THE HEAVY WEIGHTS. TAKE A LOOK AT DOKS DATA THAT HE HAS ON THE 360GR WLNGC. HIS LOADS ARE RIGHT WERE THEY SHOULD BE AND SOME INFORMATIVE DATA PERTAINING TO THEM, HANDGUNS AND HANDGUN CARTRIDGES FORUM. HOPE THIS HELPS. JIM.
Dave, I have a load posted for this exact bullet in Loadswap, but at much higher velocity. The start load for H110 and this bullet was 22.0 gr. for a velocity of 1220 for a 7.5" bbl, for a vel of 1400 fps a mid-range load of 25.0 gr. is listed. These loads are from John Taffin for a 340 gr. SSK bullet, but were very close to actual vels for the 355 gr. LBT bullet also.
