    I've got a SRH with a 4 3/8" barrel, and ported. I don't care for the porting, but it does reduce the muzzle rise.

    My favorite load for it, and it's more of a heavy 45 Colt load than a .454 load.......... 22gr. N-110, 340gr. BTB, CCI 250....

    I get 1200fps. from the 4 3/8" barrel........... When I had a 7 1/2" barrel SRH in .454, I would get 200 to 225fps more velocity with this load..
    I've asked this on other forums but, what does BTB stand for?

        Seems like people are always trying to stoke up whatever big handgun they are loading for. Pretty sure most critters won't know the difference if your load has a good quality bullet, but is going a hundred or so feet slower. All the big bore hand guns are sufficient for anything around here at factory specs with the right bullet.
