    Hello all!

    Drew, where did you get the MRC 404 Jeffery? That caliber is one you are going to LOVE. I never heard of it till I joined AH, now I have two of them. When you are ready for it, I have load data that will put a smile on your face.

    In need of a P14 and P17 Enfield take-off stocks

    Choosing powders for 458 Lott from Quickload/Gordons Reloading Data?

    Sorry I can't be of more help. QuickLoad does not have a 515 gr. Peregrine in its' data bank. Only 500 Gr. in "variants" VRG1, VRG2 and VRG3. Good luck finding something that works for you.

    Choosing powders for 458 Lott from Quickload/Gordons Reloading Data?
