Nice accurate load out of both my Super Blackhawk and my Model 29. Bullet used is Lyman "Keith style" 250 grain using homebrewed lube. Very low leading with this bullet and load.

This is from a 7 1/2 inch Ruger Super Blackhawk. This load was more accurate than my 21.8 gr of 2400, grouping at 2" @ 50 yds. Standard deviation was 15 fps, outside temp. was 76 F.

250 gr. Keith PB bullet from Leadheads fired in S&W 629 w/6.5" bbl. using CCI 300 primers and CBC/Magtech brass. Std. Deviation = 9 FPS (outstanding). Stout recoil. Hard hitting round. I could go with a heavier load but this appears to be the "sweet spot" for this gun and load combo.

I use the Lyman #429244 gas check bullet in my 44s This is A very powerful and accurate load Works good in my 29 smiths but its A real killer in my super Red Hawk great accuracy never clocked this load but its fast

LSWC 11.8 grHS - 6 1,066 fps Fed LPM guest
Accuracy is good, recoil not much more than with a Skelton load. Standard Deviation is only 7 feet per second!! from my Smith Mountain Gun (4"). This load does 1176 fps from my 7.5" Redhawk with 11 fps Std Dev. Mild recoil - plenty of punch!

This load gave me 50 fps more velocity than the same amount of W-296 and at less pressure. Gun used was a 10" Ruger Flattop so velocity may suffer a bit in shorter barrels.

CAN GO TO 21.5 GRAINS, BUT VELOCITY DOES NOT INCREASE TO WARRENT. ABOUT 2 MOA IN RUGER LEVER GUN WHICH HAS 20 TWIST.

Keith bullet from Lyman mould.

I have used this load for over 30 years with excellent accuracy in my S&W and RUGER revolvers. I have not observed any excessive pressure indicators. This is NOT a "tear-your-arm-off load.
