I would like to work up some loads for my 7 /12" Redhawk this summer using 300 XTP's. I have a box and a pound of H110 fresh from Bass Pro, so I'm ready to go.

Does anyone have real hunting experiences to share?
What is a reasonable working velocity range?
What is considered too low of a velocity in this bullet for say a 100-130 pd whitetail?
Any shot catagories not recommended, i.e. quartering?
Anyone see any issues with using H110, CCI, and R-P cases?
Does crimp or uncrimp work best?
Any thoughts on terminal performance of the 300 gr. bullet?

Since I am not an experienced pistol hunter, any and all help appriciated. :idea:

Reolds,

19.6 Gr. of H-110 will get you 1,250 FPS out of a 7 1/2" barrel with the 300 Grain XTP Hornady. This load is straight out of my Hornady manual and I've loaded and shot several hundred rounds with this combination safely in my 7 1/2" Ruger Super Redhawk, as well as my Super Blackhawk. I love the Hornady XTP's because they are fairly priced, (except for the .500 S&W), and seat easily without any deformation with most any seating stem, (no exposed lead nose to crush). Be sure to apply a good, heavy crimp. I use the Lee Factory Crimp Die for this and I highly recommend it. I also use Magnum Primers as H-110 can be difficult to ignite. Bill T.
