Re: Most accurate load in your F.A. 454?

The H110 is what I/m tinkering with now and the 300xtp,it's showing potential,I do intend on trying AA#9 as it seems to give up a little in FPS but just seems to want to group well,AA#9 and a 310 gr. lead GCHP groups tight in my Ruger Bisley 45 Colt and is right on the heels of the 454,can't remember your "handle" but even if you did hit the buck high in the back ,what's that old saying"an inch is as good as a mile",many thanks to you all for the info.

I loaded up some 300 grain partitions and used Lil Gun powder. It is listed as giving the same velocity as H-110 with much less pressure. Hodgen has the powder charges listed on their website.

Re: Most accurate load in your F.A. 454?

I dont use lilgun at all anymore. It just burns to hot. Eventually it will damage your forcing cone. Freedom arms wont even warantee a gun thats used lilgun anymore. I gave up on it in handguns and had about 4lbs left. Figured id burn it up in my beowulf. I was at the range one day and shot 10 shots as fast as i could pull the trigger and you could about light a cigerette off the barrel. Shot 10 more after it cooled with wc297 and could still put my hand on the barrel. I gave up on it right there for rifles too and gave the rest away. to bad because i had some accurate loads worked up in handguns and rifles with it.

Something may be off for you then? I have an older FA Premier Grade that's Magna-ported with a 7 1/2" bbl. bought in April of '96 that shoots groups you could cover with a quarter w/ factory ammo.

Here's the factory load data:

FA240JHP 36.0 grains of H110

FA260JFP 35.0 H110

FA300JFP 31.0 H110

All those loads shoot very well for me.

Good luck
