BisHunter Project Range Report
The BisHunter Project continues…. with very pleasing results
The Beginning. 45 Colt SBH Bisley Hunter, Weaver 2x28 Classic scope, LBT 350gr WFN boolit.
This pic is just after I got the gun. Bore is .451, I could not shove a .452 boolit through the cylinders, I added a belt mtn base pin. Load is 350-355gr (with gas check) cast with wheel weights from an LBT custom mould with an 80% metplat, water dropped, sized to .452. over 21gr H110.
Well, I got my hands on a reamer and reamed the throats to .4525. I had gone up to 21.5 gr. H110 in the load and they grouped great in my 4" Redhawk. I went to the range today with 12 at 21gr and 12 at 21.5gr and here's how they shot. I'm pretty stoked. This is definitely a shooter!
21gr. Much better! The first 3 shots at 25yds blew my mind! 25 and 50yds
Now for the 21.5gr load. Wow, mission accomplished! 25 and 50 yds.
I've found the load…. 355gr Hammer lubed with my homemade beeswax/vaseline/??? lube , 21.5gr H110, Starline brass, CCI 350, nice firm crimp.
Next time to the range I'll get the scope dialed in and when it warms up I'll get the crony out and see what they do. Did I say I'm pretty stoked!!! What fun getting this thing dialed in.

With pictures and results like that, you are making me "stoked!" Congrats on a great looking and shooting SBH. With that load I suspect there is not an animal in AK that is safe from the wrath of Snyd.
Thats what its all about ain't. A gun that will last a lifetime,looks good and shoots well enough to feed you.
Congrats Snyd! That's a beautiful Ruger and great range results.
The other 299,300,000 people can have it.
Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.
