I would think you could get close to 1800 maybe.

I chrono'd some of my "medium" loads out in the desert last year. 240 grain jacketed Magtechs on 15.0 gr of Blue Dot. My Caldwell measured an average of 1581 FPS. Out of my 1894 of course. So a 22-24 gr load of slower-burning 296/H110 has got to produce velocities north of that a ways.

My old Winchester loading pamphlet dated 9/78 used way more powder then the #49 Lyman manual as much as 3 grains more it’s starting is Lyman’s max there is a lot of years between the two, but I think I’ll stick to Lyman’s specs for now.

Oh yes. Thank you. There will be full-fledged Magnum workups in my future. I'm only looking to do some pleasant but effective plinking and defense loads; loads that will work in both Blackhawk single actions and my .44 lever carbine. I *think* bullet size (.432") is big enough for the Microgroove-style rifling in this Miroku Browning (Win-) '92. Won't know 'til I slug the barrel, but I'm pretty sure .432 is good to go, if not .001" too fat...

I load that hard cast 205 grain with 10 grains of Unique about 1100 FPS mild recoil and very accurate. The manuals used to have a section listed as Ruger Blackhawk or TC contender only that’s when we’d use the 296.
I’d think with the newer powders you could do even better.

I'm still kicking myself for selling my JM 1894S microgroove barrel .41 mag. Had it since I was 14. Sold it here on the market place about 8 or so years ago. Made in late 80s. Still my favorite rifle.

That was a straight stock, carbine config forend, wasn't it? ...as opposed to my FG with it's palm swell buttstock and short rifle forend... and sling swivels.

Did you have a pet load for it?

Here's hoping you might find another one day.
