Had a great range day today.

Did some more shooting with my 44 Bisley Blackhawk with the 2x Leupold.

Put 35 or so rounds through it it really likes the 240 XTP over 18.5 of 2400
Two 6 shot groups right at 2? at 100 yds

I also shot the new to me 14? Contender 44mag it has a 2-6 trophy.
It really liked the 240 Rem HP over 18.5 of 2400.
It also shot right at 2? @ 100 yds
Interestingly is did not like the XTP bullets but the Ruger did.

Also shot my 5.5? Blackhawk 44 I just added a Wegland base and a 25mm Trophy Dot.
Shot it a good bit at 50yds it was in the 3.5? range with that set up.
Should be great for a backpack gun.

I also shot some 200gr XTPs over 22gr of 2400 in the contender they were to hot. As were the 240xtps over 20 gr of 2400.

They may be ok in the Ruger but to hot for the old TC

Hope I can go one or two more times before it gets to hot

Both my 44 and my 45 took quite a bit of work to get them to shoot that good.

Probably should have just opened the wallet and bought Freedom Arms guns but I find it more fun making these old Rugers shoot.
