Cast or swaged for 25-2(large throats)

Post by orpheoet on Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:36 pm

I now have two 25-2s with large throats. 0.455" So far nothing is grouping at 50 yards in the one, the other I just received. A more experienced shooter suggested swaged 200 gr LSWC for better obturation. Or I could get hard cast sized 0.454". Thoughts?

How fast? Can you suggest a load with Bullseye or WST?

I'd just try your regular .45 acp loads. maybe try some Dardas .454 185 cast semi-wadcutters.
probable 3.8 gr BE.
