Hey guys, I am a TC fan, and today took one to the range for the first time. Encore 12" 454 Casull bbl. Took some cast 250 gr Long Colt ammo I loaded to about factory specs, about 900 fps. It was shooting about 10" high at 25 yds with the rear sight all the way down. I would have expected it to shoot low with those low powered loads. Any ideas? Wallace in Ga

I would try some 4:54 ammo before you change anything. It could be your 45 Long Colt ammo the problem

Also the

454 ammo May shoot lower because the bullet is leaving the barrel sooner
