Does anyone have a light load for IMR4198 using 405g Cast? Looking for something easy on the shoulder for the range.

I would suggest using the trap door loads in 4198 and that should be as light as i would go with that powder. If you want to load some subsonic loads I use trail boss or blue dot, both are pretty nice powders and provide 100 yd accuracy with 405 lasercast......................and just plain fun to shoot

Hey Ask,

Have had good success with both of the 4198's and the 405 gr cast bullet.

From 28 to 35 grains.

Double check your Manual, or look here Hodgdon Reloading | Home The IMR is just a "whisker faster", than the H 4198. Look here...Burn Rate

Rx7 and H 322 are good choices, as well.

Hope this helps.

Later, Mark

Get the Hodgdon's manual in magazine form, they have loads for both IMR & H 4198.
This is a manual I really like & here they are only about $8.
Don't load any ammo using burn rate charts as a guide look for reputable published data.

I loaded some 405 gr. LaserCasts and started with 34.0 grs. of IMR 3031 and IMO the recoil was neglible.
