  • Hello Mike, need some help with 450NE double.
    I am in Africa and we use Somchem powder, my double was regulated to 90g of S365 which is IMR4350 according to the conversion. I noted in one of your posts you use IMR4831 which is close to our S385.
    What load would be safe to start with and what's max?
    Kind regards

    I use 95 grains of IMR 4831 for my loads with a 480 grn bullet. I don't know what your powder is and would not want to guess.
    I'd start 10% under and work up "IF" that is the right conversion.
    Regarding the Verney Carron double you mentioned not shooting to decent regulation, I have heard of a few others, not many, same maker, doing same. A guy from Texas had one, I think it was in .450 nitro, that shot similar, and he and Ken B., along with participation from Verney Carron, I think, all agreed to ship it off to JJ at Champlin's for his re-regulation; paid for my Ken and Verney Carron.
