Heavy Metal, have you used H4198 with the 300 gr XTP? I'm getting ready to load some up and would like to hear what load you use. I have been using IMR-4198 with the 265 gr Hornady, and it's been a good load. I'd like to try the 300 gr. XTP

I found these notes:

3.12.04 20 rds 41.5 H4198/300 gr Sierra
crumpled three new brass, not expanded enough

2.615 stuck
2.610 stuck
2.580 good


the sierras were some bullets I got cheap, later switched to XTP's when the sierras got shot up, killed a nice hog with em
the 2.580 is OAL for good feeding
I'm looking now in the lyman book, the 41.5 H4198 is max

Sign me up, have a 444P and an "other" 444 Marlin. The P is loud, but keeps the range from getting to crowded. ;D DP

Hello, from the Black Hills of South Dakota. I would also like to join the Team 444 Membership. My first experience with a 444 was via my grandfathers 'do everything' rifle in Northern Minnesota when I was about eight or nine years old - what an experience that was! I acquired my own 444 (an XLR) last fall and I haven't regretted it. Every household should have at least one levergun, and I am glad mine is the triple 4. Too bad I waited 39 or 40 years to take the plunge.

The venerable and inherently accurate fo-foty-fo has been my go to rifle for many years now.

Woo Hoo – just may get 200 members yet :)

Howdy to all the new guys, welcome to the forum DWB ;D

I shoot the 444 in both the SS and XLR.

Heavy Metal – the 300gr XTP - H4198 load is a killer…is it accurate for you?

Sweet :D
I’ve been talking up that load for a while now.

My SS sort of likes it too ::)

I'm glad to see Team 444 is getting more members! Seemed like it was stalled for a while.
