Hi All,

I did a search for load data for my new CZ safari classic in 505 Gibbs and could not find any.

The only bullets I could track down where some woodleigh 600 grain ppsp. I found some loaddata that uses RL15 and darcon filler. I was hoping that someone here could pst some data or PM me with data for these rounds that does not use a filler.

I am waiting for my Hornady 525 grain dangerous game soild and expanding bullets to come in but they are back ordered.

Is RL-15 not a little too fast for such a large case??? I tend to use RL-19 and RL-22 in my 416 rigby with great results.

I have also ordered 200 custom Hawk bullets in the 525 grain weight for me to play with and maybe take this years moose with?

Mr Gibbs

Welcome to AH...

You have a fine rifle, however as you are finding...as specialized caliber are made your choices become limited.

The rifle seems to digest the filler rounds with out a problem.

I was hoping that someone here would have load data for the 600 grain bullets with a slow powder like rl25 rl22 or retubo?

Wonder load from a disk has info for the Gibbs.

I looked in my A-Square reloading book and it also does not have any loads for the 505 other than the 525g bullet!
I also have the CZ in 505 - great shooting rifle.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
