Hello ALL

Trying to start gathering information on 500 jeffery hand loading information, particularly for woodleigh 535gr bullets. Would like to have a reasonable load at 2200ish. Can anyone snap a pic out of the woodleigh loading manual, I can't find one anywhere?

570gr are a much better bullet weight for the 500 Jeff

Not opposed at all to using 570,....I'm just having trouble finding data in general. loaddata.com has a few but not much.

With such a short neck on the case I figured a 535 might stay a little straighter during seating but I could be off base there?

I was just shooting this exact load today, 535 grain Woodleigh at right on 2200fps. Put 12 of them down range.

I hate to bother you....I own 2 of your books including British bore rifle. I was hoping you might have more 10 bore loads. For the heavier and later rifles. Any help would be appreciated.

I hope your hunting season has started off well. I am coming to Namibia for the 7th time in late April of 2022. I am bringing two friends who have never hunted outside of the USA. I have several questions, but before I write them all, I will wait to see if you receive this. Please give a shout................................best regards.........................Bill...............Idaho, USA
