Maybe I went to the wrong forum first in the handrifle section. My question is what would be a good load to make use of a 12" barrel with a cast 250 gr pentagon HP? It may get used as backup in a new Vaquero. Just for finish shots. Wish I had a hunting 45 LC or 454 in a 9" SRH but only a 44 SRH right now. So it will be a Vaquero for now.
TIA Packy

If this is the new smaller framed Vaquero, it's not rated for +P loads like the old Vaquero.

I have a Contender carbine barrel in 45 Colt. I load 300 to 335 gr hard cast over a max charge of AA#9.

I can also shoot that load out of my Anaconda, but I wouldn't shoot it out of an new Vaquero.
