250gr XTP 15.4 gr2400 Unknown1.748" Win LP guest
SST muzzleloader bullet, actually. It’s a tapered XTP with a red polymer tip to aid aerodynamics and expansion, like the 200gr. ones (which are currently unavailable) Hornady is making for the 460 S&W Mag. Must buy these bullets in m/l sabot packs, about $8 for 20; give away the sabots. This load is only for the Blackhawk or Contender, perhaps other +P-safe guns if you adjust OAL for cylinder length. Shorter OALs didn’t group as well. This bullet can’t be used w/ 45LC brass as the crimp would be past the ogive. I found that Starline 45 Schofield brass works great, assuming they fit your shellholder (3% of mine didn’t). Use Lee factory crimp die. I’m guesstimating about 1100fps out of a 7.5" barrel; others might enjoy loading this up hotter, but not me. I got a 2 5/16", 6-shot group at 25 yds., with two outlyers (characteristic for my gun) and four bullets in one hole of 13/16 center to center. Happy shooting.
