Does anyone have much experience loading heavy WFN or LFN bullets in the contender? I have been an avid cast bullets shooter in the contender for several years (30+ years). I have resonantly been looking for good loads for hunting large animals like Moose and Elk... I have seen some new molds for the heavy WFN and LFN bullets and wanted know if any one had used these bullets and would like to share their experiences and load data?

I have a Contender 45/70 pistol that I have a Lyman mold for 325 grn round nose flat point. I don't have the number handynor have I shot it at game, but I hard cast them and I know they penetrate well. I use straight wheel weights and drop them in cold water, usually casting in the winter and sometimes the water is mixed with ice or snow.
