    Hi All,
    I just bought some Barnes 500gr banded solids for my .458 Lott and I am looking for load data for them. I like IMR 4064 powder and would like to work up some loads for it. I have seen conflicting data about max loads. One says 78grs is max another says 84grs is max. I am shooting these out of a Ruger No1. Can anyone help? Thanks

    I'm running across the same issue with my 22-250. Hodgon says 34.1 grains of IMR3031 is the max whereas Speer says 36 grains is the max. That seem like a lot to me. I'm going to assume that the Hodgon max load is completely safe and work carefully up to the Speer max. That I suppose is easy enough for me being that I have a heavy barreled 22-250. I would suggest the same for you with your Lott, however, I'm guessing your shoulder will disagree after a short shooting session. I say go with the light loads.
