I gather you are asking about the 527 and the CBC in 22 H
The 527 is a front locking action and the CBC is a single shot break action. 8.5gn of 2205 for the 48gn is a starting load and 8.5gn under a 40 is just below starting load according to ADI so very mild and case life should be OK as long as I anneal Regulary.

2205 that’s interesting. An overall efficient cartridge tweaked and fit for purpose is a beautiful thing
