If they'll handle "Buffalo Bore" ammo...they'll handle any "by the book" reload you can come up with. Wink

Try www.reloadammo.com/4570load.htm. There are enough loads listed that you surely can find something that will work for you. Be sure to heed the warning about starting 10% lower and working up to the posted loads. Every gun is a world unto itself. The max loads listed may be way over pressure in YOUR gun or may be powder puff loads. Just be careful using someone elses loads and load data. The reloading manuals are the SAFEST source of load data and sometimes they are wrong. Just my $0.02 worth.

Tub gave advise; reference several reloading manuals!!!! You can probably load that puppy hot enough you won't want to pull the trigger unless something is trying to kill you!! Don't ask how I know! Don't ever shoot a "hot"load from a bench unless you have your orthorpedic Dr. on speed dial!!! Darn close to 458 win mag on the shoulder!!

From what ive read the buffalo classic is built on a cast receiver, hot loads are dangerous in them. There should be an answer here..
