Sounds like you're inundated with great info!  <!--emo&:)--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

If you haven't already, you simply must order the Tech Manual from Mr. Stanton.  It DETAILS so much of what has only been briefly mentioned here.  

I've had good success with 38 grains of RL7 under plain base 405 Meister's.  1.5" at 100 yards through a William's peep  on a Marlin 1895G.  My chrono is still on order so I don't know how fast they sail.  I think it is about 1350 - 1450 judging only from a comparison of recoil to factory Remington 405's.  

I've loaded some of Marshalls LFNGC 405gr. but am waiting for the chrono.  

Please post results after you lap your bore(s).  I have not lapped my little 18.5" barrel.  The results I got from the fishing weight excersize were disappointing and inconclusive.  After a very difficult start down the muzzle, the weights seemed to practically fall the rest of the way, with only a VERY SLIGHTLY noticeable constriction at the midpoint (rear sight mount???).  This rifle seems plenty accurate to do the job I want it to at the ranges I want it to, so I've decided for now not to lap.  

It sounds like you're making progress in your research.  You'll bypass the "steep" part of that learning curve and emerge victoriously accurate, I'm sure!  <!--emo&:)--><img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->

Meanwhile the rest of us are learning from it all!
