25 gr IMR 4227, 250 XTP = 3 shot 1 hole groups @ 50 yards in both of mine


WHAT IS THE MV OF THAT LOAD? DO YOU GET ANY UNBURNED POWDER?


MV runs around 1250 with no indication of raw powder. Muzzle flash is relatively calm.

I?m a little late to this party, but I just wanted to say congrats on a great buck and great shooting also. Interesting discussion on bullet choices too.

HAVE BEEN TRYING TO BLOODY OTHER GUNS MOST OF THIS YEAR SO THE 45 COLT BISLEY HUNTER HAS BEEN ON VACATION. TODAY (10/31/20) I WENT TO MY RANGE ON THE RIO GRANDE TO CHECK SIGHT IN AT 105 YARDS ON A 10 INCH FA 454 (USING OLDER WINCHESTER 300gr AMMO), A 10 INCH CONTENDER IN 45 COLT (USING A 275gr PC'ed SWC HP OVER 19grs OF 2400, CHRONO's 1,375fps) AND THE BISLEY 45 COLT HUNTER. FOR THE HUNTER I HAD MY 250gr GD/DC LOAD OVER 27grs OF 296, PLUS SOME 265gr FUSION BULLETS, SOME SEATED OVER 26.1grs OF 296 AND SOME OVER 27grs OF 296. OFF A REST, AT 25 YARDS, WITH SCOPE SET AT 3x, ALL 3 LOADS WERE ABOUT THE SAME ACCURACY WISE. GOING TO CHRONO THE FUSION 27gr LOAD TOMORROW MORNING, THEN DECIDE WHAT TO USE THIS DEER SEASON. ALL OF THE FUSION LOADS EXTRACTED EASILY, AND WHEN THE BRASS WAS RESIZED ALL FIT EASILY INTO MY SUPER TIGHT JRH BISLEY.

WENT TO MY RANGE ON THE RIO GRANDE THIS MORNING. BRIGHT SUNNY MORNING WITH THE SUN COMING FROM OVER MY LEFT SHOULDER. NORMALLY IN THESE LIGHT CONDITIONS I CANNOT GET ANY MV READINGS, SO I USED SOME LIGHTS ZIP TIED TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE SUNSCREENS, SOMETHING THAT WORKS REAL WELL INDOORS, IN DARKER CONDITIONS, BUT SEEMS TO RESULT IN "WEIRD" READINGS WHEN THE SUN AND THE ARTIFICIAL LIGHTS COMPETE FOR BULLET SHADOW TIME.

I WAS EXPECTING SOMETHING IN THE 1,300's AS THE GOLD DOT LOAD CHRONO'ed 1,330fps. I SHOT THE 27gr W-296 LOAD UNDER THE 265gr FUSION 8 TIMES IN THE BISLEY HUNTER AND GOT READINGS "ALL OVER THE PLACE", AS FOLLOWS: 1114, 1539, 1324, 1257, 1069, 1312, 1190 & 1320, ONE OF THOSE "WTF" EXPERIENCES. AM THINKING THE 1324, 1312 & 1320 READINGS ARE VALID AND THE OTHERS "WHO KNOWS". THEN I SHOT AT THE 6.5 INCH ROUND SWINGER AT 105 YARDS, 3 SHOTS WITH THE GOLD DOT LOAD AND ALL HITS, THEN 3 SHOTS WITH THE FUSION LOAD AND ALL HITS.

THE FUSION BULLET SEATS SHALLOWER AND HAS A LONGER NOSE. AFTER YOU SHOOT 1 OR 2 ROUNDS WITH IT THE NOSE ON THE NEXT ROUND's BULLET IS DEFORMED SOME WITH THE LEAD ON THE NOSE SMEARED BACK SOME. SINCE I BELIEVE THE GOLD DOT AND FUSION LOADS ARE ALMOST TWINS IN ACCURACY AND MV, FOR NOW, BECAUSE OF THE WEIRD NOSE DEFORMATION ON THE FUSIONS, I AM GOING TO STICK WITH THE GOLD DOT LOAD.

BTW, WHEN FEDERAL LOADED THE 265gr FUSION BULLETS IN THE 454, THEY WERE RATED AT 1350fps SO I AM GUESSING THEY ARE PRETTY SOFT.

Thanks for the report Rey, I've been following with great interest. I haven't done much work with my Bisley Hunter. I have only developed one load using 335 grain WFN's and HS6 doing a little under 1100 fps. Might try it on a doe, as we have a ton of deer this year.
