yeah that would be great.
what press are you using, my Lee Classic cast press appears to be too small for the rcbs - 1"-14 dies, which im spewing about

If you email Geoff at Woodleigh Bullets, he has in the past emailed reloading data to me.

well the good news is i found one on the 2nd hand market, which is uncommon to say the least.
factory cz550 safari .505 Gibbs - Stoked !
came with dies, 80 cases shell holder, couple of boxes of 525 soft points and the cz factory box and wrapping.

Very nicely put together rifle, much better finish on the woodwork compared to my factory hogsback .458 cz550
The attention too detail is quite nice, obvious why they were so much more expensive.
factory barrel band sling point, cz logo stamped into the grip and forend and the factory recoil reducer in the stock, stock is much better finished with all the grain being filled in smooth, im guessing the company who builds the .505s and 500 jeff, replace the stock with their own or something?

In anycase need some load data! too suit 525 woodleighs... the previous owner stated he was using about 130grains of ADI Ar2209.
ADI dont actuly have anything listed on their website and my hornady reloading book mentions nothing any help would be great
thanks
Woodliegh has a loading manual out. I’d photograph the page and send it to you but I’m out of the country for a few days.
