Thread: 44 Mag Lee 310 Rossi 92

    44 Mag Lee 310 Rossi 92

    I'm trying to get the Lee 310 to work in my Rossi 92. I have tons of these cast up and can only shoot so many full powered loads. My standard Redhawk load is crimped in the rear groove so they are too long for the 92. I use 21.5 gr H110

    I know I should back that off if I'm going to seat deeper but how much? H110 doesn't like to be backed off. It's a pretty stout load to begin with. I'm thinking tying 20 gr.

    Had anyone tried a reduced load? I'm thinking 8-10 gr Unique would work.

    Using 20gr of AR2205 / H110 with that bullet in my Ruger 96/44 and it chrono's @1500fps. Crimped on the top groove to fit in the rotary mag. It doesn't strike me as a "cold" load.

    Unique is ok, not my first or second choices, but 10g of unique feels very mild after H110... but what else do you have for powders? A very nice shooting powder for the big mag is Ramshot enforcer, or better yet Alliant 2400 if you find it or have it already... you are welcome to pm me if you need more ideas...

    Mild loads I use 231/HP-38 7.5-8 grains, light recoil, spooky accurate. Heavy loads, 2400, 20 grains. They shouldn't hunt you much in that Rossi. My 92 has a crescent butt plate and a couple dozen of them will make you shake like St. Vitus.

    Thanks, I have Unique, H110, 231/HP38, Bullseye, Titegroup, WST, CFE Pistol. I've wanted to try 2400 but can't find any locally. I can find most other 44 Mag powders. #9 is also on the list to try as it seems close to 2400.

    When I had a Winchester trapper 94, some years ago now, my standard load was 20 grains of 2400 over a lyman 429215 cast with my own mix of 50 percent wheelweight and 50 percent soft lead smelted down from some old lead pipe. It was pleasant to shoot, and accurate enough to easily shatter fragments of clay pigeons at the 100 yard berm of my gun club's range. That same recipe did not prove as accurate in a 92 EMF rifle with a 24 inch octagon barrel. You might try the 429215 boolit. Not many people talk much about it, but in some guns it's accurate, and easy on the shoulder to shoot.

    Isn't the issue of "backing off" on the 110 loads due more to case volume fills rather than just book numbers?

    Since I'm more of a fan of A2400 and AA#9, I don't really have hands on experience with H110. Just asking.

    H110/W296 does not like air space in the case. The powder needs to at least come up to the base of the boolit, if not slightly compressed.
    You can run into pressure spikes otherwise.

    I wasn't looking for it but stumbled upon 2# of 2400! I'll try it first.

    The 310gr Lee boolit is really a great one for the 44 mags. With its dual crimp groves. 20 gr H110/Win296 is a standard load that works grsat all around.
