    I don't find VV N130 around me. My "do-all" has been Re-7

    Always better to carry "too much" gun and too many cartridges...
    Marlin 1894SS, Winchester 1886 Ultralight rifle, 94 Legacy 44 mag
    Springfield Trapdoor carbine, Sharps carbine
    I like big calibers

    If I don't say wrong, the 1895SBL is also 450marlin caliber, from what you know here you can load all the cartridges with maximum dosages. Loads for lever shotguns are lower but refer to other models that are less robust and not designed for the 450marlin chamber. Obviously you have more information than us in Europe, if you can confirm it would be great.

    Yeap! Good choice.

    There are those who do it in reduced dosages to improve load density.
    With a non position sensitive powder a filler is not recommended or required. Out of the bullets you have I would say to stick with the Hornady. I personally use cast in all of mine but I've heard good things about those bullets. Also with my cast bullets they are sized to .460 and I don't have a problem with leading or accuracy.
