Been trying to find a accurate hunting load for my RSBHH. I have tried a few. The most accurate so far is 12.0gr of Blue dot powder beging a 240gr soft point. Would this be a good load to hunt with?

18.5 of 2400 over a 240 XTP CCI 350 primer.

I'm not a fan of Blue Dot, but if it is accurate in your gun I'm pretty sure it will work. I'm using 12.0 grains Longshot with a Hornady 240 grain XTP and it's worked on a small pig, and several Whitetail deer with no problems. My velocity out of a 6 1/2 inch S&W 629 is a hair over 1200 fps, and I would think your load of Blue Dot should be doing very close to that. Give it a go and tell us all about it. Don't forget the pictures. We like pictures of dead animals.

I've used 24.0 gr. WW296 for over 40 years with 240 gr. jacketed bullets. Always shot good. (23.5 gr. with 250 Keiths).

Been using the same load, just not as long because I?m not as old as Doc.
