I found a few more. these are listed as pistol , not contender . I assume these would be ok to use .

Varget should work really well for you in the Contender. Keep us posted with your load development.

I'm not sure how easy info is to get on the contender , so I dug up all I can find for you . these do say contender . I only have varget listed in that one book , my other books are probably to old . the 32.0 grains of varget should be a minimum load for your combo .

You have a solid load for deer hunting.
