H110 and W296 are the same powder.

The Ramshot was under a 260gr Cast SWC and is safe in a Redhawk.

I look at more load data than just what Hodgdon posts online.

The bottom line is to be careful when reloading and maintain awarenesswhen using slow ball powders that are more difficult to ignite. On a few occasions the bullet and a clump of powder wound up an inch or so into the barrel.

From Ramshot email:

We suggest the following.

A standard LP primer will work.

Caliber: .45 Colt (LC)

Application: 30000psi level = Stronger weapons i.e. Ruger, Colt, Dan Wesson, Freedom arms.

Barrel length: 6” --- for longer barrels add the following % to the published velocity values below):

Ø 10” barrels add +/- 10%

Ø 20” barrels add +/- 20% on velocity)

Caution: Cases must be of modern recent manufacture and rated for high pressures.

Powder: Ramshot - ENFORCER. (1st Choice)

Bullet weight: 260 grains.

Start load: 20.3 grains (1175 – 1250 ft/p/sec)

Maximum load: 22.5 grains (1300 – 1350 Ft/p/sec).

It’ important to note that SAFETY is our prime concern therefore we strongly recommend.

1. TO ALWAYS BEGIN LOADING AT THE RECOMMENDED MINIMUM “START” LOAD and develop loads in 2% increments towards the MAXIMUM load.

2. If at all possible, measure the velocity and correlate with our data.
