Super nice. I love mine. I went with Keith bullets over 2400. the gun is plenty strong for these loads and the velocity works perfect with the sights. The pic is of an offhand group at 25 yards using the the Magnus 250 Keith over 16.5grs 2400 with a 150 primer. It put 4 in one hole. The two lower shots are my sight adjustments after testing the load. I just haven't done a glamour shot so have to excuse the pic. It does this consistently with this load.

Roy, great shooting! We discussed maybe later on trying some 2400 to bump the velocity a little more. I see it works for yours.

It works great. I have went to 17grs (Elmer's 44sp load) without an issue.

I was fortunate to pick up one of these in the stainless flat top bisley version. I haven't had the time to shoot it yet but I could definitely see it becoming a constant companion around the farm. I can only hope mine shows accuracy even approaching that shown here!

Looks like a great revolver and clearly worked perfectly on that deer!

That's fantastic. Thanks for the info. I really like the lipseys guns. I have one of the .454 casulls and have shot a bunch of deer with it. Good stuff

I really can't wait to shoot mine. I have some Missouri 240gr loaded up with some csb-1. I hope to be able to get about 1000fps with that bullet and powder for a good plinking load. I'm going to try for 1100fps plus with the Lyman 255gc and h110 for hunting. I'd LOVE to convert my new flat top 45 Colt to bisly as well if anyone has a lead on a stainless bisley grip frame.

It's an imported maxum powder. Rio uses it in their shotshells. It has a burn rate similar to universal.
