Shoots just under 2" at 50 yards from a solid rest out of a Ruger Super BlackHawk with 10.5" barrel. Use Hornady 240 Grain Silhouette bullet, Winchester brass. Good load for Big Bore silhouette matches. This is not a maximum load.

I’ve gone through a lot of powders and different loads on the 240gr. hardcast LSWC and this is the cleanest and most accurate I’ve found for my Super Redhawk. Not a tack driver but 2.5" groups at 50 yards with a Weaver 2x scope. Good Whitetail load.

Worked this load up in Ruger single-actions from data in the Hornady manual using Winchester cases; bullet is hard cast. This seems like a good, hard, flat-shooting load; no signs of excessive pressure. It’s very accurate (2") in my guns. Utilize a very heavy crimp.

This load is based on your standard LSWC of 240 grs. I use a Rem 2 1/2 LP primer and load consistently at 12.5grs. with a heavy roll crimp. Crimp into the crimp groove. Max is 13.4 grs.and at max you will experience some flattend primers.A good accurate load that I use for target practice, somewhat heavy recoil especially at max. Shooting it out of a Taurus Raging Bull with a 8 3/8 inch barrel.

I load consistently at 10.0 grs.and shooting it out of Taurus Raging Bull 8 3/8 inch barrel. This load is out of the latest IMR load book.
