    Hi guys

    I need some help

    I use Quickloads to assist in load developments for most of the calibers that I reload for
    I find the program pretty useful

    I am usually impressed by the array of cartridges in the database with lots of weird and wonderful wildcat calibre's

    I recently acquired a 500/450 NE 3.1/4" and was looking for the calibre on their database an couldn't find it

    Am I just not looking in the right place or is it not programmed in the program?

    I am pretty sure I have the latest version of Quickloads

    Any assistance would be appreciated

    Kind regards

    Frederik

    How old is the double? I am assuming that it was regulated with either the 75gr or 70 gr of cordite. If this is true it would be reflected on the proof markings.
    What powder do you have access to? I am looking at data in Graeme Wrights great "Shooting the English Double Rifle book.

    Hi AZDDAVE

    I have everything I need in regards to data for reloading, I’m just a bit of a ballistics nut

    Like checking the pressure curves , etc

    There is a few real wildcats on the Quickliads program and it just surprised me that there is not a listing for the 500/450 NE

    The gun was made around 1896-1904

    It is nitroproofed

    Kind regards

    Frederik

    Federik,
    Sounds like a fun rifle. It is very rewarding to get the old guns back into the field.
    My quick load program is an older one and doesn't have it either.
