I been working on loads for my Ruger SRH. The first is 454 Casull 300xtp w/H110 at 1650fps. Very accurate but, kicks like a mule. Second is 45LC 250RNFP Oregon Trails at 1100fps. Not as accurate but, very tame recoil. Is load #2 enough for deer/pig?


Wondering how many grains of H110 you're dropping to get 1650?

Back around 1871 US Army wanted handgun ctg capable of shooting

thru a horse @100yards and kill an lndian on the 0ther side. 1873

saw the lntroduction of the Colt Model P in 45Colt. 255gr lead

@900fps. Never killed an lndian hiding behind his horse, l have

popped a few deer with a handgun... Deer aint as tough as lndians

and horses... 45 COLT is just FINE for deer
