DAN: I WAS THINKING HIGHER VELOCITY FOR LONGER RANGE (UP TO 100 YARDS) WITHOUT A RAINBOW TRAJECTORY. AT THE SOUTH TEXAS DEER LEASE I HAVE ACCESS TO, MOST BLIND/FEEDER SET UPS ARE AT LEAST 100 YARDS (RIFLE HUNTER DOMINATED). AT MY RANCH MOST ARE 75 YARDS OR LESS (HANDGUN HUNTER OWNER). THINKING I WILL START WITH HIGHER VELOCITY AND SEE HOW IT WORKS ON ANIMALS. THE BULLETS ARE SUPPOSE TO BE BONDED SO THEY SHUD HOLD UP BETTER.

MAILED THE CYLINDER, PRIORITY MAIL, TO 2 DOGS ON THURSDAY 11/21/19, HE GOT IT YESTERDAY 11/22/19, DID THE THROAT THERAPY AND MAILED IT BACK, ALL IN THE DAME DAY. SPOKE WITH 2 DOGS, SAYS THROATS WERE .450 AND VERY ROUGH, THE SS CYLINDER WAS HARD AS HELL, AND HE REAMED THEM TO .453 AND LAPPED THEM TO SMOOTH THEM OUT. A WHILE BACK HE REAMED SOME S&W CYLINDERS TO .453 FOR ME AND IT HAS WORKED VERY WELL. IF I GET THE CYLINDER MONDAY I WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE THE REVOLVER WITH ME TO THE HIGHPOINT ON TUESDAY AND MAYBE GET IT SIGHTED IN AND BLOODIED.

JUST LOADED 40 ROUNDS, FED 155M PRIMERS, STARLINE CASES, 27grs 296, AND THE 250gr SPEER GDHP. WILL MOUNT A SCOPE TOMORROW, AND, IF THE CYLINDER GETS HERE MONDAY, I CAN WORK WITH MY "HUNTER" UP AT THE RANCH.

GOT THE CYLINDER BACK IN THE MAIL TODAY; MOUNTED A 2.5x7 SIMMONS SCOPE SUNDAY, USING WARNE RINGS; THE BELT MOUNTAIN No. 5 STYLE BASE PIN FITS GOOD; THE FACTORY GRIPS HAVE A HUGE GAP AT THE TOP (I CAN SEE THE SAME GAP ON THE PHOTO OF SHORT30's BISLEY HUNTER THAT HE HAS POSTED), SO I PUT SOME NICE "IVORY" LOOKING GRIPS ON IT AND HAVE SOME ELK STAG GRIPS THAT NEED A LITTLE FITTING. GUN IS ALL PUT TOGETHER, TAKING IT WITH ME UP TO THE RANCH.

Good luck. Speer specifically warns shooters NOT to use the 250 DCHP on game at muzzle velocities above 1000 fps. Expansion will be violent and the bullet is suitable ONLY for varmints. There are much more appropriate bullets available, why risk a wounded deer by using the wrong bullet?

CD,...where did you find that info?? I looked at the Speer website and clicked on that particular bullet and no mention of the warning you mention.

I tried some of these Gold Dots a couple of years back, not on game but into my standard test medium of 3 one gallon jugs filled with water at 50 yards. Muzzle velocity according to my records was 1084 fps for a five shot average. Accuracy was good but I felt the bullet over expanded for hunting use, especially for pigs. Retained weight was 248 grains, and expanded diameter was .937 at it's largest measurement.






Not certain how well the pictures came out, but it looks like a little spider. I think these would be an excellent defense bullet for people carrying a 45 Colt. I've been sticking to Sierra 240gr JHC's for my standard S&W 625 load of 13.0 grains HS-6 with a Fed 155 primer, and using Hornady 250gr XTP's in my hotter loads for my T/C's and FA's.

Retained weight was basically 100%. Sounds like a good hunting bullet to me!
