thanks I've been looking for a while for a handload for it but all i could find were geared toward lever action rifles .I always cut down the loads and work my way up to the max load anyway

country - get yourself a reloading manual for the contender. It lists a ton of cartridge data for all their chamberings, including some wildcat cartridges.

This is my next favorite cartridge for the Contender. I started out years ago with the 16" bbl and later went to the 14" HB. I use 30-30 win cases necked down and then fire form them. I personally like Nosler 120 grn ballistic tips. Do as was suggested here buy you a copy of the reloading book for the contender. I bought my first contemder 18 years ago sold it after a few and then kicked myself until I bought another 10 years ago. I now shoot 22 lr, 223 rem, and 7-30 waters - soon to add a 256 win mag to the arsenal.
