Thread: .45 long colt

  1. #1

    .45 long colt

    I got 50 speer deepcurl 250gr hp for my old mans 45 judge. but i could not find any load data in any of books. The powders i have for this are hp-38, no#2, red dot, bullseye.



    Thanks, James.

    Seven grains of HP-38 will be about the best load with what you have. Although none of the powders you mention are optimum, HP-38 (same as W231) will suffice. Shot from a Judge, you aren't likely to tell the difference with a better powder, anyway. Get real close, point and hope.
    Please visit my shooting articles at www.reloadingroom.com and my Vietnam novels at www.rockyraab.com (Do use Firefox, NOT Internet Exploder)

    Is this the same bullet as the 250 grain Gold Dot hollow point?

    I load mine up with Blue Dot for a S&W 625-6 Mt Gun, but like Rocky says, with the Judge and your selection of powder 7.0 of w231/hp38 should be good.
