I also have a Bisley like 45LC and it's second only to my Bisley 44 Special as a favorite. I have two loads that shoot very well, a 275 LFN at 1060 and a 255 at 1100. As Brian Pearce stated in the latest Handloader, using 285 RCBS loads at 1050, "these loads were used, with authority, on Black Bear". His son shot a large bear, in the chest, at 40 yards six times. Not one bullet was recovered and there were exit wounds "half the size of my fist". I hardly shoot my 44mag and 41mag any more.
