Trueshot cast bullets(SWC) are the closet I’ve come to the keith bullet, Comercila wise. I shot the above load out of a Ruger Redhawk that wears a 5 and 1/2 inch barrel and its been very picky in what it liked. I started at 16 gr. over a good bag rest , the six groups I did shoot , opened and closed like a bellows.The 18gr group at 25 yards and a rather heavy trigger prevented any group better than 2 inches. I stopped at 18.5 grs. its maybe a prudent choice , for my Redhawk wouldn’t hit the side a barn at 20-22 grains, and those loads , trust me are very healthy pressure wise...Well Good shootin Ya’ll....Don Hou.TX

A nice accurate standard pressure load. Velocity was measured from a 5.5" Bisley

This is a very accurate load in my Encore with a 12" barrel. It is mild in recoil and fun to shoot.

This makes for a mild to moderate CAS load, it’s right to POA in my 5.5" Vaquero. FPS is unknown, but should run between 750 to 800.

Cases are cut down to the same length as a 44 Special and OAL is also the same as a 44 Special with a similer wieght bullet. I shoot this in my Vaquero. If the cases are not cut down, I use 11.0 gr. No signs of excess pressure, and velocities are very consistant.
