Need loads for 38-55

I inherited a Winchester 1894 (Mfg. 1903) in 38-55 and I would like to carry it during deer season this fall. I plan to have the barrel slugged ( I believe that is the term) and cast my own bullets. I need help finding a load that I could use in this gun. I have already had it gone through and checked out by a gunsmith. I am looking for nice easy shooting loads. For shots out to 100yds. This is really a neat old gun it has a 26" octagon barrel and is a short magazine takedown with a shotgun spur style butt plate. So if anyone has a few loads I can try you can e-mail me at

Thanks Dale
