Anyone know of 45 Colt reloading data for a 405 gr or similar weight bullet.?

Can anyone provide a link to any reloading data for a 45 Long Colt with a hard cast bullet weight of around 405 gr. The gun to be used is a customized Ruger Super Black Hawk that has been fitted with a heavy duty 5-shot 45 Colt cylinder and heavy duty octagon 7 1/2 in barrel. I've been using 325 gr bullets. However, I've cast some 405 gr bullets using 45/70 moulds, and have sized the bullets in stages down to 452 diameter. Due to the longer cylinder of the customer Ruger, these larger bullets fit in the cylinder with room to spare. However, I would like some starting load data to start with.

Yahoo Answers is a good place to get the latest spiff about celebs or yoghurt. Pretty tough to get Handloading Data here!

Nonetheless, I just checked my Hodgdons 2004 Manual. The highest they go for a .45 LC is a 360 Grain, Lead Flat Nose, with a gas check. Starting load 19.5gr of H4227. H4227 is considered a slow pistol powder, or a very fast rifle powder. Look here: http://www.hodgdon.com/

I also checked my Hornady book and the heaviest bullet they show is a 300 gr Hollow point/XTP. For that they start with IMR 4227 or MP5744 which both yield 1,000 fps.

Both manuals warn that the load is far above safe pressures for .45 Colts or replicas. It is only for Rugers or Thompson Center, but Hornady says that it should be just fine for a Marlin 1894-S Rifle. Don't forget a heavy crimp. The recoil will walk the bullets right out of the case.

You must be building a load for 200 meter steel silhouettes. That or griz.

I suggest that you join Dr. Boren's Handloading list on Yahoo. It is a great list -- good information and good stories, too! Look here: http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/handloading/
