Warning! Notes: These loads were all near maximum for trouble-free hunting loads and gave similar pressures. Proof loads were fired with as much as four grains more of some powders with no extraction problems. However, no load listed should be used in any other rifle without starting about five percent below and working up as pressure indications permit. Twenty-six-inch Atkinson barrel, 1917 Enfield action; RWS .404 Jeffery cases fireformed; Federal 215 primers; Oehler 34/50 Chronograph system; velocity at 15 feet converted to muzzle velocity; temperature, seventy degrees.
