    Like you said, we'll shoot the ammo it is regulated with to get the ave velocity. We can break one down as well and weigh the powder...will give us a general indication of the burning rate.

    I'll be interested to see if 2,100 fps with H1000 or such shoots to the same point and regulation as 2,100 fps with IMR 4350 or IMR 4831 (different pressure curve).

    I did forget about you and your dad going to Australia.

    Yeah, we need to get busy!

    Dirty work, but somebody's got to do it!

    Not sure what the C barrel is, the rifle was the 1-H, the heavy barrel and with scope I am sure it was near 10 pounds. Its more to do with stock design and the joke of a pad they use, even with a sissy pad it was brutal.

    Sounds like you had the D contour barrel...the heavy one. Not too many of those floating around. I've never seen one in 450-400!

    I did a bit of looking last night about this and do recall having heard of it before. Being as there were only 32 of the D barrels in this cal its unlikely I had one. I don't have the rifle anymore but I wrote an article for Gun World about it some time ago and went back and looked at the pix and while inconclusive I suspect it was probably the C barrel. Definitely a 1-H rifle but likely not the heavy. It was not a light rifle though as I say with scope it was 10 pounds or so.

    The C contour 450-400 usually runs around 8 lbs bare naked.

    Agree - good read.

    He did overstate the recoil at 76 ft lbs...probably to make himself feel better!

    Chuck Hawks recoil tables has:
    .450/.400-3" (400 at 2150) 9.0 lbs rifle w/ 51.0 lbs recoil energy or in the same ball park of the 404 and 375.
    http://www.chuckhawks.com/recoil_table.htm

    The Realgun loads are pushing 2400 fps, so a bit more recoil than Chuck's numbers.

    Good day Sir.
    I actually joined the forum because of this topic. I have a 450-400”3 Ruger no1 tropical and up to now have only loaded using 0.410 diameter Bullets, mainly Hornady and Impala (locally made Bullets here in South Africa)
    I have not slugged my barrel but read that the diameters on the Rugers are bore 0.400 and grove 0.410
    Will the Barnes 0.411 bullets be okay in the 0.410 barrel ? I only ask because I have an opportunity to buy some of these exact 400gr 0.411 Bullets and would love to try them.
