460 S&W hand loads

Has anybody tried any loads using Hodgdon Superformance powder in a 460 load? I have had fantastic results with my 243 win and 22-250. Unfortunately I cannot get any H-110 so I am currently trying to find some alternate data for my favorite long range revolver.

    Best stick to mag pistol powders or slower shotgun powders (in colt cases). Superformance is slower than 4831; if you try to touch a round off in your 460 loaded with that you will likely stick a bullet. The next round will be very interesting to say the least.

    Thanks folks, I appreciate all the info I can get. I found some lil' gun and ran some mid range loads (42 gn.) at 200 yards I had fairly good results. 2 1/2" groups. Might just look for some ram though. Can't hurt to try.

    Stick to what the manuals say. I can't recall anything even remotely close to superformance, way way too slow. Imr4227, h-110/296, 2400, enforcer, aa#9 lil'gun, but don't like what I hear about lil'gun as it tends to run real hot and causes forcing cone and topstrap erosion way more than the others will

    Makes for a bad hair day.....

    I use LIl Gun in my 44 loads. The key is keeping the frame clean. It does splash a bit...
