I also did not want to hijack the previous threads on reloading.

I am trying to decide whether to use Hodgdon Varget or H4350 for developing loads in the .404, using Woodleigh 400 grain Weldcores. I have seen some very interesting data posted using various powders, including H4350, but no mention of Varget .

Is anyone out there using Varget for the .404? If so, any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

The Woodleigh loading manual list charges with Varget in the .404 Jeffery for all bullet weights.
If for some reason I could not source Norma 203B or RE15 I would have to give it a try.

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
