BUFFALO BARNES 454 CASULL LEAD FREE - 250 gr. Barnes XPB (1,750 fps)
20 Round Box
PRESS RELEASE FOR BUFFALO BARNES LEAD FREE 454 CASULL 250gr. XPB @ 1750 FPS
This load utilizes the deep penetrating-for weight Barnes XPB bullet. This bullet will expand violently on flesh and bone and will penetrate roughly 24 inches, depending on impact velocity and the particular bones that may be struck.
The long-for-weight XPB bullet crowds available powder capacity in the 454 Casull casing, so we are not able to use a bulky flash retardant powder. You will notice a muzzle flash from shorter barrels, but as your barrel length increases beyond 7 or 8 inches, the flash greatly diminishes and of course there is no flash when fired from a carbine.
This load would be ideal for deer and black bear. Even elk sized critters can be taken if you stick with broadside or CNS shots and avoid those bad angle shots.
As always, Buffalo Bore does not engage in the industry wide duplicitous practice of developing advertised velocities from extra long laboratory test barrels, which the customer will never be able to achieve in the field. Instead, we utilize real word firearms, which give velocities the customer can reproduce in real world situations, where it counts.
1655 fps -- Freedom Arms mod. 83 circa 1985, 6 inch
1643 fps -- Freedom Arms mod. 83 circa 2001, 6 inch
1479 fps -- Ruger Standard Redhawk with chambers lengthened to accept 454 ammo, 4 inch
You’ll note that the above firearm # 3 is a 45 Colt, converted Standard Redhawk, NOT the Super Redhawk, the Ruger factory chambers in 454 Casull. I don’t care for the bulky, ugly, heavy Super Redhawk. Never mind you can’t get it in a barrel shorter than 7.5 inches if it is chambered in 454 Casull. So, I sent my standard 45 Colt Redhawk to Jack Huntington (530-268-6877) and had him lengthen the chambers to accept the longer 454 Casull ammunition. Now I have a short, handy, double action, stainless steel, 454 Casull. Something Ruger ought to think about doing from the factory…….
