Bought my first batch of 405's 10 yrs ? ago. I shoot a new model Winchester 1886 Lever w/ a 26" brl.- Reload with Hodgdon 4895 -50 Grns.-CCI 200 primer. What a "hoot" to shoot. The load keeps the CUP under 20,000 (safe for this 1998 production).It may be slightly compressed and yields 1614 FPS. that's fast enough. Let the big bullets do their job. "Big bullets make big holes"
You have to put a slight crimp at 2.550-2.560 in order to feed and chamber the rounds out of the tube mag. All of this data is per the Hodgdon Reload site. If anyone wants to load 500 GRN RN (single shot only)-E-mail me. I bought enough Laser's to last a lifetime. A FANTASTIC bullet!!
