  1. Try the #1 with a Barnes 450 grain(.458) hp #45819 with a starting grains of 50 RL7 and End of 52 grains of RL7. The latter one should give you approx. 2000 FPS and 4000 ft.lbs. of energy. Barnes recommend that you stay within 150 yds so the round will open up properly. It a real kicker in 45/70 Government.
