Well just cast up a bunch of 185gr swc, then found out I dint have any loading data for the 185's. Any help? Twillis or 41fan you guys got anything like that in your loading data? Will be using a blackhawk with 6 1/2" bbl.

Thanks Gun Runner :confused:

I could not find any loads for the 185. I did find some stuff close however.

Accurate Arms list data for a 175 gr lead

#2 - min 5.4 grs for 878 max 6.0 grs for 975
#5 - min 8.4 grs for 914 max 9.3 grs for 1015
#7 - min 14.4grs for 1316 max 16.0grs for 1462
#9 - min 17.6grs for 1421 max 19.5grs for 1579

I have had good results with #9 in my guns

Out of an old Lyman 45th edition:
data for a 199gr cast bullet

Bullseyes - 3.0 grs 641fps to 5.5 grs 994fps
Unique (old) - 8.0grs 1132fps to 11.0grs 1436fps
2400 - 16.0grs 1225fps to 19.0 grs 1533fps
IMR 4227 - 18.0grs 1245 to 22.3 grs 1448fps

Sorry I could not find any data for the 185. Hope this helps you out some.

Twillis, tks for the info. Gonna get the calculator out and see what I can come up with. This gives me a starting place to build a load with.
