Reply | Edit | Del All 41 Magnum load
I'm looking for a 850-900 fps load for some 210 gr. lead bullets I have using 2400 powder. Since this is another one of those soon to be gone calibers I'm not having much luck in reloading manuals. Thanks.

Reply | Edit | Del Thanks!
Thanks for the information and the welcome. I have the Hornady fifth edition manuals but they don't list any lead loads and are so full of errors that I hate to use them. Went to the Alliant web site and all they list are max loads. I seem to remember that when I first started reloading the manuals had minimum to maximum loads listed but guess there are to many calibers and bullets to do that now. I'm a member of the Mauser shooting association and reload for the 8mm. My real love though is pistols and I reload for the 9mm, 10mm, 41 Mag, and 45 ACP. I've just run out of 41 ammo that I reloaded in 1983 (only been shooting for the last year as we lived in Japan for 8 years) so had to start looking for lead loads again. This is great as I can load up a couple of rounds this morning before I go to the range as Wednesday is range day!! Thanks again.
