Hi all, what recipes do you use for 300 grain hornady HP bullets? Thanks in advance.

Ya, I guess that might help. The caliber is 45-70. The loads will be for a new lever gun, a marlin 1895g. Thanks

I use IMR4198 and had such good results I did not use anything else. The unfortunate thing is that in my rifle the accuracy got better and better when working up a load all the way up to the maximum published charge from the Hornady manual.

IMO IMR4198 and those around it on the burn chart are ideal for the 300gr pills.

I use imr 4198. in my gbl with 300 325 and 350 grain bullets. with the 300's I use 47 grains. just be careful you will exceed the limits of the gun before you get much pressure sign from the brass.
