  3. I have acquired a Mauser in 404 Jeffery and hope someone can help as far as reloads are concerned. Literature I have read (Pierre vd Walt, Koos Barnard and Somchem) indicate that S335, S355 and S365 can be used. Which is the better one using a 400gr SP?? Regards. Sim de Wet

    • Hi Sim,

      I am also loading 404 Jeffery and are using 355 on 400gr Rhinos.
      Working well


    • Hi, I use 80gr S335 with 400gr Claw bullets. Very accurate but haven’t done a velocity check yet.
      You can also ask Johan Kruger,I’m sure he’ll also be able to help you.
