I tried the IMR4227 and 250g XTPS a couple weeks ago and was very pleased with accuracy and recoil. I think this is a great powder for some higher velocity 45c. I also tried W296 with 250g Nosler Sporting bullets. There was considerably more muzzle flash and kaboom with the W296 powder. Also very accurate and a couple hundred more feet per second. I'll keep those for hunting. The XTPs will be fun to shoot with the IMR4227. Just thought I'd share.
Hornady's manual for loading the Blackhawk notes that the best results were with IMR4227 and 2400...and Cabela's is right down the road from me and they had the 4227 in stock. I also shoot the 240 or 250 XTP HP's and it is wonderfully accurate. Congrats on the purchase of your Redhawk. Those are great guns. I now have 3 Ruger Revolvers. I love them. Thanks for the help, guys.
