I've been fooling around with some 255 gr lswc in .452 for the Colt & ACP.

Heard that these were supposed to be pretty accurate, so loaded up some for the Rossi '92. THESE ARE NOT FOR REGULAR REVOLVERS!

10.5 Universal, set them to a smidge above the shoulder.

I have the Skinner peep sight on the barrel, and have the small gold bead front sight, raised up from factory.

Windage was good from my last trip, and elevation was good with the 250 gr loads I had used to zero the gun. The 255s were a tad low at 100 yards, so I elevated the peep by 1/2 turn. I used my sissy pad for the first 30 rounds. Shot some other stuff i brought, then went to the plate rack to let the barrel cool off.

When I came back I decided to take off the pad, stand up and shoot three rounds off hand at 50 and 100 yards as quick as I could get a sight picture. Cover the target with the dot and let fly.





I have no idea which shot was low on the 100 yd target.

I killed my first deer with Dad's long gone 30-30 with open sights. I think I'll get another in the future.

I cast a 230 grain RNL that comes out ~ .452" for .45 ACP

I cast a ~ 250 grain RNFP that I size to .454" , for .45 LC . I recommend you give that a try . As long as the ammo feeds & chambers OK , do not be afraid to go .002" over-sized on cast bullets .

I am also casting a ~ 200 grain RNFP that I have not tried yet . I sized them to .454" , also .

I shoot .45 LC in a Rossi Puma and a S&W wheel gun .

God bless

My local guy does cast these at .454 as well. I'll ask him next time he does a run to make me 500. My S&Ws seem to like the .452s. My Ruger Blackhawk isn't as accurate as I want yet.
