    I shoot 450 gr. Barnes solids in mine, but H4895 works well. This rifle was converted from a Win M-70 in 458 Win Mag. It does not like some bullets and I had pressure problems with a couple of custom cartridge manufactures. I had to load for a trip to Africa in a hurry. I used 80 gr. of H4895 with the Barnes banded solid for a velocity of 2330 fps.. This was a very accurate and devastating load. It was 1 gr. under maximum. Try carefully working up from 75 gr. to a few grains higher than my load and you will be impressed with the performance. Good luck
