Does anyone have any 454 loads using cast bullets in the 260/265 range. I know most people will think this is to light a bullet for the 454. I have some cast performance in the 265 wfngc for the 45colt. Would like to work up a hot 454 load and from there, try them in the 460 S&W. Thanks for any info or ideas.

I have a 260 gr. cast bullet with a gas check I shoot in my 454 Casull. I load 25 gr. of 2400 under the 260 gr. bullet. I don't consider a 260 gr. bullet light. :D

I have found them very accurate in 2 different Ruger Super Redhawks. :D
