I have one of the Winchester M95 Teddy Rosevelt 405 win rifles, and have been trying the noe 411-251WFN bullet in it.
The bullets are sized to .413" and lubed with Carnauba Blue, seated to 2.985". 27 grains of Herc 2400 gives 1822fps.
I'm getting fairly good results, but I think the gun and load looks like it wants to shoot better.
My eyes are getting so they don't see open sights as clearly as they used to. I put a peep sight on it, but I think the peep is too large. I've ordered a variety of sizes and am still waiting for them to show up.
I'm thinking of mounting a scope to it for load developement. Does anyone know if the Weaver side mount will fit the factory drilled holes? http://ads.midwayusa.com/product/429...FU6ewAodP0kMIg
Wow you have to be one of the only ones shooting one! I give you lots of credit for that. I don't know what alloy your using but across the board ive gotten better luck accuracy wise especially in rifles with harder alloys. try something at least 16bhh and if I really wanted to tune it id try alloys from 16 to 20 and even give water dropped ww a try for an economical alloy. Keep in mind though it that's 100 yard shooting that that will take any game animal the 405 is ideal for at probably twice that range and that's about as far as your going to shoot a 405 anyway. Very cool gun your playing with and I wish you good luck
