    Hi Leverman
    what velocity are you pushing the 240 xpt? just Hornady only rate the 240 gr xpt to just over 1800fps .
    I have never used them as i was worried that they would give up and fail as i push my .444 to around 2300fps with a 265gr interlock to great effect with imr 4198 or reloader 7.
    Good to see another .444M shooter on here.

    You guys would have fun with cast bullets in the .444 Marlin. I had two that I built, both with a 1-18" twist for heavy bullets. Both were screamers with a 365 grain, gas checked NEI bullet. For lighter loads I used a Lyman 429-421 cast bullet over H4831. It weighed 258 grains and gave black powder velocities and pressures.~Muir
