Does anyone happen to know what the twist rate for a Rossi M92 45LC? I've got one on the way and started thinking about it, it's not listed on the Rossi website that I can see. Any help would be appreciated.

92..45lc twist 1 in 30. Good strong action will take good load..

AFAIK, Rossi issues a 1:30" twist in all calibers of their CF levergun barrels.

yes the 357 has the 1in30 also. mine really likes the cheap monark 38 and 357 hollow points from academy very accurate and they cycle very well. thinking about the tang sight like you have on yours steve.

YOu won't be sorry if you go with the tang sight. Also, both my Rossis seem to like Zero's 158grn JSPs. I've shot about 4K of them and they are accurate in my loads.

The reason I was asking about the twist rate is that I have a bunch of 405gr and 355gr BTB that I bought for my Blackhawk 45LC and was curious if they would stabilize in the slow twist of the Rossi.

Well I got my answer yesterday. Yes!

Much to my surprise the heavier the bullet, the tighter the grouping at 50yds. And no sign of keyholing what so ever. I'm thinking that I may just have to go get a tang site with aperture front site and see about doing some shooting out to 150-200yds.

And just my luck, all bullet weights from 300gr -405gr had almost the same point of impact. That just happened to be at the very bottom of the vertical adjustment. The 300gr being dead on and the 355gr and 405gr being about 2" low. The only problem I did have was with Some 240gr JHP, they were about 8" high.
