Anyone care to share their 'pet' .45 Colt loads for '92 Win/clones? Login/Join

Gents,
Kindly post your pet loads for 250 gr. and 300 gr. jacketed bullets as well as any cast bullet loads you have found to be especially accurate.

I trust you will advise which cast bullet(s) you are using.

Thanks
Jon

I load 5.7 grains of vihtavuori N320 under a 255 grain flat point cast bullet. Very mild and extremely accurate out of my Rossi M92.

I've used the same load for over 30 years for any 250-255gr bullets (cast, plated, or jacketed): 9.2gr Unique. It has worked perfectly for me in more than a dozen different guns over the years.

I use 5.0 grains of Hodgdon Clays for any cast bullet from 230 grain to 250 grain...

For 200 grain I bump the load up to 5.4 grains of Clays...I found it burns cleaner than the 5.0 load...

With Clays make sure you use a good crimp...

Right now the 200 grain RNFP bullets are from Summersenterprisesllc...best price I have seen on a quality store bought bullet, he will ship 2000 in a flat rate box...(good prices on other calibers too)...

I also cast my own 230 truncated cone and 250 grain RNFP from a LEE mould...sized .452 and tumbled lubed with a mixture of liquid Alox and Johnson's paste wax (never any leading issues and less messy than straight liquid Alox)...I am going to try powder coating these later on...

All of these shoot well in my 92 and Rugers.
