    Quinn....for whats its worth, here is an interesting article that the author claims that S321 performs almost identically to W748 in straight cased large caliber loads. 748 data would likely form a good starting point for your gun.
    Doubles, Loads & the .458

    Sonchem S365 with Peregrine VGR2 and VGR3 bullet points.

    Check Peregrine's site for exact loading data - working well for me..
