Looking to start loading for my .444 Marlin. I have IMR4350, brass, and Winchester large rifle primers. Anyone have anything similar or a load they would care to share? I've been shooting the leverlutions (sp) and they are pretty accurate.

4350 is way too slow. H4198, H322 is more the speed you're looking fore. I load H4198 under Hornady 300gr XTP, Speer 300gr UC and 325gr hard cast.
Thanks for the info. Now ill start looking for some H4198.

I mostly load home cast 325gr these days. Used them on a black bear last spring.

BC, what are you getting performance wise out of your loads, and what twist is your rifle?
