Just finished loading 200 rounds .357 in 110 grain and 158 Grain Hornady XTP. They are broken up into 6 sets. Half are 110 are over Bullseye, the other half over Unique, same thing with the 158s. I want to Chrono different loads in the blackhawk and El Patron and Henry.

I then loaded up come 45 Colts. I did rounds for the pistols (Blackhawk and single six) 200 grain XTPs half with Bullseye, the other half with HS-6.

Also loaded two different loads for the Henry with HS-6 using 250grn MB Cowboy #1

If you have some 2400 stick about 14 grain under those XTP bullets. How much HS-6 are you using in the Colt . Ive tried that and had good luck with HS-6.

Hey Big Al, I dropped 11.5 grn under a 200 grn XTP. I have used 2500 and like it, but I am down to 1 pound and can't find any right now. I have 4 pounds of HS-6 and thought I would give it a try. I am looking for around 800 to 850 FPS on the Chrono.

Thanks RR, coming from a true mountain man, I appreciate it.

I do not know who made it. My son had it made for me and gave it to me for Fathers Day ten years ago, so it is special to me and I always wear it on my cartridge belt.

On a side note, I have one that looks similar I keep in the safe that my father made in the boondocks of Elmendorf Texas when he was 16 around 1924. He killed the deer and used the antler for the Handle.

The LGS was out of the Hornady .452 250 gr XTP's for the long colt loads. I ordered two boxes online so I'll get to those when they come in. Finished loading some Sierra 140 gr HP's over 12.8 gr of Accurate #9 for the .357 yesterday. I really like that load. It shoots well in the Vaquero. I'm going to load some more .32 S&W longs today for the 31-1, LCR, and Single Seven. They make a nice plinking load.

RR - Here are the two knives we were talking about. The top one is the one I carry on my cartridge belt my son gave me, and the one below it is the one my father made coming on 96 years ago 9his initials are carved in the handle).

Thanks for the link, Al. I've never used 2400, but since so many members like it (a lot), I checked it out. With shipping and the HazMat fee, the cost for a four pound container is about $38 per pound. Too much. I'll look for it locally once I can and do get back to shooting again.
