So far all I got to play with was 460 GR HB -FP Hornady Great Plains bullets. Only shot at 50 yrd. target and got pretty good groups with 90 gr. Pyrodex RS powder. Kicks like a mule out of my 50cal. Hawken. Got lots more lead products to throw, so there'll be much more experimenting.
I've got a 1:66" twist barrel on my CVA Kentucky .45 caliber. I was loaded with a TC maxi 240 gr. and 85 gr. Pyrodex. A decent buck was galloping around me from left to right, as I swung the bead to lead the front shoulder I missed a 3" Dogwood in the shadow of a large pine's bole. I fired, the bullet struck the dogwood, there was no sign that the deer had been struck but the next day the adjoining lands owner drug the deer to our field with his tractor. The bullet had split and two thin shards had pierced the side of the animal sufficiently enough to cause it's demise. If you use conicals in a slow twist barrel confine shots inside fifty yards but that's usually enough range for most shooting situations.
