For this shoot, I am working with Western Powders, 11FS by Accurate. "FS" stands for Flash Suppressed. The Ruger Super Blackhawk that I am running in this video has a barrel length of 4 5/8" and I am pretty satisfied with the minimal amount of flash coming from the bore. I have worked up 10 different loads and I will state the powder charge increments below. The loads I am working with increment in .02 of a grain. It is evident in this video that this particular revolver liked the lower velocities much better than the higher and this is good example of why the reloader must run the gammet from low velocity to high velocity... or min charge to max charge. The Ransom Handgun Rest will prove this throughout this video. The load with the tightest group is the 19.6 grains of No. 11FS.

The load data I am using can be found in the Western Powder Handloading Guide, By Rob Behr. Always start at a minimum and work up towards a max charge watching for signs of exceedingly high pressures. One sure sign of high pressures are cartridge cases that are difficult to extract, flattened primers or primers with soot.

I was not able to get coverage on all targeted load groups because the magnum muzzle energy kept causing my cam corder to give me the blue screen of death. These 44 magnums give off tremendous energy.

Accurate No. 11FS

19.2 Gr.... Second tightest group.
19.6 Gr.... First, tightest shot group.
20.0 Gr.... Third tightest shot group.
20.4 Gr.
20.8 Gr.
21.2 Gr.
21.4 Gr.
22.0 Gr.
22.4 Gr.
22.6 Gr

Note: This revolver held the tightest shot groups at the lower end and it is evident that the trend was the first three min loads.
