Re: Ball loads? Anybody shooting Guard loads?

A single .457 RB or preferably a .460+ RB lightly lubed with Lee Liquid Alox seated so the case mouth lightly crimps on the RB diameter over 5 - 6 gr of Bullseye works for me. A slightly neck sized case is used.

You can also use a lightly lubed .457 RB in a fire formed case with 3 - 4 gr Bullseye and the RB seated down inside the case on the powder.

No filler or wad is used/needed with either load.
