I just purchased 2 guns, Colt Cowboy and a Winchester 94 in 45 colt. Asking for help again. I also have a Ruger Vaquero in 45 colt. What I'm looking for is the best load for cowboy shooting around 800-900fps. I have a Hornady 255fp load with 7.0gr unique and out of my Vaquero this gives me about 650fps. Can I safely go higher on the Unique to reach 800fps. in my Colt Cowboy? I know the Colt Cowboy is not as strong as the Ruger, But it seems 8grs. Would be ok. Now out of my Winchester 94 would this put my bullet above the 1000fps. thats allowed in Cowboy shooting? Do I need 2 different loads or maybe even 3 for the different firearms? I was looking to stay with one load for all three. Is that poss. As some of you prob. heard me say before the reloading manuals do not cover this aspect. Is ther a Cowboy shooting loading manual out there or is that too much to ask for. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
