454 casull chronograph results

Postby suedenflames68 » Fri Jun 26, 2020 6:38 pm

12 round series of 454 casull handloads from my ruger Redhawk alaskan

240 xtp mag, 15.0 longshot, 1.750 OAL 7.5 Rem primers

Average 1093 fps
ES 82
SD 26.1

Kinda expected more velocity and not great ES numbers. Need to double check my crimp maybe. Felt like I reproduced factory crimp of hornady rounds using same bullets best I could with a lee FCD though.

Need a good source for affordable bullets too. These are too pricey. Maybe something coated or plated would be okay if that's all the faster I'm pushing them from the short barrel.

Very shootable, doesnt try to tear my fingers off , or knock dust off the overhead lights and equipment in the range like the factory hornady 454 did haha. No numbers on those, and not really in a hurry to shoot em again, but would be good to have reference i guess.
