I use the xtp magnum in the the 300 gr, this bullet penitrated over 4 1/2 inches of old black locust hard wood. The overall dia. of the bullet was .796 inches after I dig it from the tree stump. Held together and I will be using it on a wild pig in march 2004.

I have loaded and fired the .45 Colt using new Hornady brass with up to 18.0 grains of Accurate #9 using Colorado hard cast 300 grain FP BB bullets. I want to emphasize that I am shooting a Ruger Blackhawk and not a SAA replica revolver or old model .45 Colt. I also do not recommend loading the .45 Colt to this level. The only problem I’ve had (so far) using 18 grains of Acc. #9 is case bulge. I think that this load is probably as far as you would want to go with the .45 Colt maybe too far. I backed off to around 16.5 grains of Acc. #9 and have not had any problems other than slight case bulge. It is fairly accurate and manageable to shoot. I only use new brass for these heavy loads and once I have fired them I will only use brass for significantly lighter loads. This info. is not intended for use just reference. If you use it it’s at your own risk. Is there anyone loading the .45 Colt to these levels and would you mind contacting me and sharing your information. Thank You, Brian

I use this load in my Ruger Blackhawk for silhouet and hunting,heavy recoil,this is I think a max load for this gun and caliber,if you want something heavier use a 454 Casul

I handload this cartridge for my custom extra heavy barrel .45 Colt T/C Enchore pistol. I custom ordered this barrel after personally speaking to the barrel smith and telling him the load I would be shooting in it. PLEASE Dont use this load in any pistol that is not made for extra heavy loads *these are very HOT loads* use exstream caution!!

Heavy recoiling load for the .45 Colt. On the low end of powder but still a hard hitter. Used for bear hunting with a handgun. Reference Hornady load manual. FOR RUGER AND T/C ONLY.
