This round is loaded to please a Cowboy Action shooter. Its 158 grain bullet is a classic lead round nose, which issues out of a revolver’s muzzle at a velocity of 650 fps. Such a soft bullet connects well with a steel target in order to topple it, although its nose profile and ability to deform means this wouldn’t be the worst bullet to have working for you during a shootout down at the livery.
Black Hills is a consummate operation, one that has earned the patronage of prestigious military and private clients alike. These rounds aren’t totally historically accurate given their smokeless instead of black powder, but everyone around you is going to appreciate not being enveloped in a plume of smoke by your gunshots. This somewhat rarer cartridge’s high quality brass casing is a real boon for handloaders.
