I have been working up a load for my 480 with the 71/2 inch barrel. I have stopped at 18.3 gains of h110 which gives me on average 1077 fps. The case are not sticking and it is manageable to shoot. Has anyone work up a load for the 480 with a 425 grain LFNGC hard cast bullet? Or and I way out in left field with this load?

In John Taffins article on the Ruger 480 he showed 19 grs of H110 & a 425 gr Cast Performance bullet running 1145 fps........in his gun. He also showed 17 grs of 4227 & the same bullet running 912 fps, 18 grs gave 970 fps & 19 grs hit 1005 fps. All loads showed very good accuracy.
