    Harter66 replied to a thread .45 Colt and Unique? in Cast Boolits
    I shoot mine in a Ruger and my original notes said 6.5-8.5 for SAA 255 gr . My old lot of Unique gave me 850 fps out of the 7.5" barrel at 8.5 with a 454424 , 452-252 @262 gr and 825 with the 452-255 @265 gr . Some books give 9.5 as a max load with...

    After many hours of research ....... If your SN is Prefixed with an M it is compatible with 44 mag . I could find no reason for the drop of the 454 chambering , most likely premature wear , bulged threads or blown dovetails . About 20% of the 45...

    RCMav AR precision builds all of their .277 , 6.8SPCII barrels in 1-10 or 1-11 . The core of those cartridges are 90-110 gr @23-2600 fps , the 6.8 is very good with bullets like the 120 SST , 279-124 @130 gr , and 27-130 to at 140 gr . Speeds...

    Flounder . 1-10 is plenty in in the first 2 for AR family 223 and 30 Rem/6.8 based cartridges in 25 & up cal . For cast it's probably going to be fine in 260 . It's probably way too fast in the 35 though I shoot 250s 2100 fps in a 1-14 358 Win...
