Re: 3rd gen Colt 44spcl loads

In my Model 24 S&W I loaded 2400 in one gr. increments from 11.0 grs. to 17.0 grs.. On a hunch I also loaded some at 12.5 grs.. That load proved to be the most accurate of the 6,000 rds. I put through it.

13.0 grs would be fine I would opine. I shot this group offhand at 25 yds.

Welcome to the forum. Since the 1895 was also made for cartridges at higher pressures it certainly would seem fine at .303 levels. Interesting variant here. Like to see your pics when you get them up.

I will be interested to see what you come up with on the lead free. Our experience has been that if you drop down a weight you will have a bullet about the same length with superior velocity and performance.
