Just got in on the deal they've got going over at sixgunner forum for a Ruger Bisley Vaquaro customized by Dave Clements. I'm going with a 5.5" .44mag for hunting and CAS. Would like to work up a load adequatly powerfull for deer hunting thats still legal for CAS which means it's got to be under 1000fps and able to function through my Marlin 1894 Cowboy. I'm thinking maybe the 265 or 280 grain WFN offerings from Marshall would likely fill the bill. Has anyone here got any suggestions?
Thanks.
Manny

Thanks for the replies. Marshall could you give me an idea of which powder you'd recomend most out of those you listed and what charge would put me near but not over the 1000 fps out of the 5.5" Bisley with your 280gr bullet? This will be my first excursion into handloading, I've got a few hundred winchester cases saved up to get started. Also could you recommend a primer for this load.
Thanks & God Bless,
Manny
