Handloads.Com ForumCast BulletsLots of loads for the favored son--the .41
I finally got around to clocking most of what I was interested in for my .41's
The facts 1st generation pact--10 ft to the first screen-- I make no recomendation-- for your info only and from my guns not yours
three guns-- a 6" DWA, a blue 5.5 Redhawk and a ss 5.5 Redhawk.
Most of the loads are for cast bullits but there are some jhps I will just give load the gun and the average-- they speak for my guns
6" DWA 21 /H110 230 Creeker Keith av 1301
21 /296 230 "" " av 1300
22 /296 Lyman 410459 220 Keith av 1334
22/ gr/2400 200 Remington jhp av 1470
23/2400 170 Seirra jhp av 1527
SS Redhawk 5.5" *12.5/ gr 800x Lyman 220 Keith av 1365
ElmerKeith's load of 2400 with the new 2400
*20 /2400 lyman 220 keith av 1470
21/ 296 215gr swc 1347
7.0 /800x Lyman 220 keith 867
*14 gr /800x Remington 200 gr jhp av 1531
?15 gr /800x 170 Seirra av1633
Blue 5.5 Redhawk 22/ 296 220 Keith av1334
19/ 2400 220 Keith av 1245
23/ 2400 170 gr Seirra av 1522
22/2400 Remington 200 gr jhp av1439
12.5 800x 230 Creeker Keith av 1290
the loads with a star are very accurate for example the 12.5 800x load with the 220 keith has an es of 9 and a mad of 3.2 - the load with a" ? " was not accurate at all --the es was 113.9 and mad 29 anyway all of these were fine in my guns. While a little dirty --I have had good results from 800x in my .41s except with 170 gr. boolits -- I am still awaiting my .41 GNR -- it will be fun --



 
Thanks for the report Lynn, looks like you had a lot of fun with your 41's coming up with all that. I'm sure you'll have a ball working up the 41 GNR, Reeder says they get 2,100 fps from an 8" test barrel with a 170gr JHP in that caliber.

Tell me about that load of 20gr of 2400 with the Lyman 220. That sound like a real snorter. Is that the Lyman Keith type bullet.

Elmer always recomended 19 -20 grains of the old 2400. with his 220 Keith-- the Blackhawks I have had will not shoot it - but the three.41s I have now will.
I have two cast bullet handbooks from Lyman and one goes to 21 grains -- the rest 20 grains. The bullet I am using is the Lyman 410459 and it is a 220 gr cast Keith type- I have a two cavity mold and a one cavity mold - -- wheel weights cast 225-228 - and i made some tonight out of mostly lino and they run 215-217 gr. I also cast soft noses out of the one cavity- and when I do it right they work well -- first deer I ever took with a hand gun was this bullet cast soft (weighed 230gr)and 20 gr. H110 - in -out with a thunb size hole in the heart- three hops and down. It can be very accurate --like three inches at 100yards-- sadly my 5.5 Redhawks are not as cast friendly as I would like--but they are usable around 3" at 50 yards but I am stil working on them:) does this answer your question -- oh yeah most say that the new 2400 is a little faster so there is a need to tone down the loads -- good advice - but I have noticed tht the manuels even with Jacketed bullets are still up there. anyway load safe and have fun
 
Thanks for the info Lynn. Did you know you can post your loads on this site?
