Hands down the best bullet in this caliber for long range
By Scott C.
on Jun 08, 2012
I bought these initially for my Ruger Blackhawk chambered in .45 Colt and was able to get excellent accuracy with them, sub 2" groups @ 25 yards, and I intended to hunt deer with them.
Sadly, I discovered that my limitations with my revolver would not allow me to take a deer, so I have now bought a Marlin 1894 in the same caliber, and I can happily say that I can put five inside a single ragged hole @ 50 yards.
I'm no longer worried about being able to get a deer now.
These will extend my range up to about a realistic 125 yards, something previously unheard of with a .45 Colt handgun or rifle.
The key is that wonderful soft plastic point that greatly improves the ballistic coefficient.
With conventional hollowpoints from a rifle, about the best you could realistically expect to do would be 75 yards, but these nearly doubles that.
