Would 45 LC "Ruger or T/C loads" be safe in a (brand new) Winchester 94, 20" barrel ? I'll be loading 300gr XTP/Mag with Alliant 2400. 12.5 (reg) or 16.0 (Ruger, T/C)
I hear that 2400 is great for 44mag's, which I'll be getting into next. Be nice to use one powder for both.

"I load for the Ruger and the 94s so both can easily take the pressures of my hunting loads. My hunting load is 20 grains of 2400 and the 300/310 grain cast WFN LBT bullets of Cast Performance. In testing pressures for the Ruger years ago...Hodgdon found that 18.5/2400 under a 300 grain cast bullet gave 29,000 PSI...from my tight (barrel gap closed to minimum) Ruger 7.5" barrel S/A I was getting 1180 fps. From the 20 inch Win 94 carbine, that load was going 1540 fps. Which is a medium load from a Freedom Arms (300 gain loaded to 1500 fps) handgun. Every pig I hit with that load gave up the ghost within 50 to 60 yards with side chest shots. Using the 300 grain NEI Giles cast .452 bullet in those days, and some of the 191/Lyman 300 gainers step sized down. Rarely did those slugs stay inside these big animals with side shots. 20/2400 from the long barreled Ruger gave 1240 fps. And raised the velocity from the 20 inch rifle barrel to 1650+ fps. Not surprisingly, because of the slower burn rate 4227, with 22 grains it gives near 1710 fps from the Winches"

Now, this is why I get so frustrated with figuring out these loads. Most sights are saying (for 300gr xtp/hp) 12.5 of 4200 max..."NEVER EXCEED" others say 16.0 max "NEVER EXCEED" and this guy is using 20 grains! So far I’ve found 12.5 is grouping good, nice recoil, but I’m gonna try some @ 14.5.

Tried some W296 @ 20.5, very uncomfortable with that skinny, crescent butt on just a tee shirt. Didn’t even want to try the 22.gr !
