WAS VERY SLOW AT THE RANCH OVER THANKSGIVING AND I DID NOT GET A CHANCE TO SHOOT AT ANYTHING WITH THE HUNTER, AND BY FRIDAY AFTERNOON I STARTED GUIDING A FRIEND FROM ALASKA AND QUIT HUNTING. HOPE TO GET TO THE RANGE THIS WEEK TO CHECK IT OUT AT 105 YARDS, AS I WANT TO TAKE IT UP TO MY SOUTH TEXAS "SUB-LEASE" WHERE I HAVE A TROPHY BUCK TAG.

Did you get any specifics on the throating operation? Were they different/varied or just undersized? Mine shot the HSM Bear Loads extremely well so I considered not doing it but all the internet wise guys said it never hurts, only improves the results if the throats are consistent. All were undersized with 5 being very consistent with the 6th being more undersized in comparison. I used the 4DReamer kit and made them all .452. I have not shot it yet so anxious to see impacts.

SHORT30: 2 DOGS ADVISED THAT THE THROATS WERE .450 AND VERY ROUGH, HE OPENED THEM UP TO .453 AND LAPPED THEM TO SMOOTH THEM OUT. HAVE SHOT 4 ROUNDS ONLY TO SIGHT IN AT 50 YARDS. THE LAST 3 SHOTS ALL TRACKED EXTREMELY WELL WITH THE SCOPE ADJUSTMENTS, WHICH MAKES ME THINK IT IS ACCURATE. NEED TO GET OUT TO MY RANGE THIS WEEK AND SHOOT IT AT 105 YARDS AND SEE WHAT I GOT.

Interested in seeing the results, I have quite a few of the 250gr Gold Dots and I know years back I fired one into some water using H110 and it blew to tiny bits, I've since been under the impression that it doesn't do too well at high speed since it will hold up (barely) if kept under 1100 fps. The 250 XTP is stronger for sure.

Interesting thread.

Look forward to seeing how the gun and load perform. Thanks for keeping us in the loop as things progress.

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.


Sorry for the late reply, been out hunting. Check the Speer Number 15 Manual, top of page 873: Ballistic Notes. Not everything of importance can be found on the Internet. Books.

I?ve used the Hornady 250 XTP on several deer at around 1250 fps, it holds together and penetrates.

TOOK 4 SHOTS TODAY BUT I GOT MY HUNTER DIALED IN WITH THE SPEER 250's OVER 27grs OF 296. HOPE TO TEST THEM ON ANIMALS THIS WEEK, WILL ADVISE.


Hodgdon lists a maximum charge of 24.0 grains of H110, your load is 3 grains above that pressure-tested data. Speer?s maximum for that powder and exact bullet is 21.0 grains. Like I said before, good luck.

NICE JAVILNA BOAR I SHOT WITH THE PICTURED RUGER 45 COLT BISLEY HUNTER, USING WARNE RINGS, A 2.5-7x28 SIMMONS SCOPE (SET AT 5x) AND THE SPEER GOLD DOT/DEEP CURL 250gr HP's OVER 27grs OF 296. SHOT WAS AT 95 YARDS AND THE BOAR FELL RIGHT THERE, SHOULDER SHOT AND COMPLETE PENETRATION.



ENTRY HOLE IS ON THE LEFT, EXIT ON THE RIGHT. THIS WAS ONLY A 50lb ANIMAL SO IT IS NOT A DEFINITIVE SIGN OF ANYTHING, BUT THE PERFORMANCE WAS GOOD ENUFF TO WARRANT FURTHER USE AND TESTING.

FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON's HUNT I OPTED FOR MY 10 INCH FA 454. IN SOUTH TEXAS YOU DO NOT RECOVER DEER THE NEXT MORNING, YOU ONLY FIND WHAT THE COYOTES LEAVE YOU, SO FOR AFTERNOON DEER HUNTS I PREFER BIGGER, BETTER, PROVEN, etc. BTW, FRIDAY AFTERNOON I PASSED ON A WIDE, SYMETRICAL, MATURE, SHOOTER, 10 POINTER, BECAUSE I KNOW THERE ARE 2 LIFETIME APEX BUCKS OUT THERE ON THE "HIT LIST". FOR MORNING HUNTS I WILL USE THE BISLEY HUNTER.
