I don't believe quickloads thinks much of 4198 in a 460 case, but it works for me. I use it from ~300 grains-ish to a 740 grain monster. Below 270-300 grains-ish I switch to H110 or trailboss, because I'm trying to do exactly one of two things with a light bullet in a 460 case.

I don't even bother with 45 or 454 cases anymore.

H110 is good up to maybe 550 grain bullets, give or take. I don't see a reason to use H110 on 600 grain projectiles, anyways. Starts at 50ish grains of H110 for the 200 grain projectiles down to lower by 550, it's 20 or 25 grains for a 550 grain projectile, I forget which. If you actually care, ask me and I'll look up the notes. in-betweeners is linear, and it works. The only rule is seat to zero airspace. Which, frankly, maybe you CAN seat off the powder, I don't know. I'm not gonna find out though.

4198 is more civilized. My favorite loads are 32 grains with a 425 grain bullet and 31 grains with a 500 grain bullet (RCBS-500-BPS). at te moment its looking like the fat meplat 425 flies a wee better. But if you are a pig and I have a barrel rest, you are dead within 100 yards anyways.
