Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

I loaded the Serviceberry with loads from 40.8gr RL7 up to 41.8gr. I filed down the edges of the seater plug in the seater die so that it doesn't booger-up the meplats. I started with 40.8 because I am thinking that is an accurate load worth double checking. I didn't go all the way to 42gr because I...

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

http://i.imgur.com/0h3jKpB.jpg In the center are my two new 400gr bullets. The Razberry is the 4th from the left. The Serviceberry is to it's right. The Serviceberry is designed to work in a 444 Marlin that has had two edges of the loading port rounded out to allow a 400gr bullet load with a SAAMI ...

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

This pic illustrates how the Razberry LE works. The round on the left is the SuperPerformance 265fp (standard length case of course.) On the right is the Hornady Leverevolution round with it's shorter case length. The Razberry LE in the middle.

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

Good info. Marlins often require a bit of tweaking for good feeding. I'm surprised that the chamber would take that front band. The case is the Hornady Leverevolution case. It is 0.150" shorter than standard 444 case length. That drive band is 0.20". I normally run a .050 front band lengt...

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

Wow 6pt. That's a lot of critters. In Arizona, a guy's gotta feel lucky to get one deer tag a year. I am preparing for a Coues deer hunt for a week at the end of October. That is the length of the season, one week! I am going to use my '65 444. I have been doing load work for the '65 with my MM 237g...

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

That is a shame that he decided to not do it. He would have done a first rate job and been able to standardize 400gr bullets in the 444.

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

Well it seems my friend of tumble lube groove fame isn't going to make renditions of my BRP/RD 432-375GC and 432-400GC so I suppose I'll have to start deciding on what new molds i want ! Since I have Mt Sourdough's 433-425GC version working to suit me I can step it up to a 450 or 465 grainer with a...

Re: 433-415GC Huckleberry

6/30/13 Chino Valley Range - Test part 2 417gr Huckleberry/H322 38.5gr-40gr - 50 yards Temps were hot this morning and barrel never would cool down. Temps were in the 90s although there was no wind. I think that 39.75 load would have been really something if it wasn't for the temps. http://i.imgur.c...
