I agree on all your points. They do recoil a biit. They chrono at 1200. You are correct I shoot keyholes with the lower load for the BP conversions. The heavies are the target loads, to match the hunting rounds, for the Ruger only. I hunt with 230 Speer hollow points, so I target with the same weight and powder load, just more affordable bulk bullets. The heavy loads group well at 50 yards. And the feeling generally returns to my hand in a few hours.Hey east Texas Rick I would hesitate to shoot those 230gr unique loads(11.5)even in your Ruger. I wasn't gaining anything but recoil over 9.3 gr with a similar plated hollow point bullet. I had better accuracy around 8.8-9 gr and about 1000 fps average in a SBH hunter with 7.5" bbl. Those loads are getting into the twilight zone.
I had a new Hornady given to me recently and I have spent hours pouring over it. I compare it to my other manuals and online pages. I really like to read the story about how the cartridges were developed.Reloading manual?
People still buy those?
