over the last 30 years or so, I have been around and shot the model 94 trapper in 45 colt hundreds and hundreds of times. some factory loads but mostly the crazy nitro loads a friend used to reload. my son has used one his entire hunting career (20 years) and has always put deer right down with the loads we have loaded for it. now days, hotter loads are available and not really having easy access to loading them, I bought some from Buffalo Bore for him. they are the Barnes 225 gr XPB all copper hollow points and they claim 1855 fps out of a 20" barrel. the picture is of a hit on a 1/4" steel plate at 100 yards. can't wait to see what it does on a deer.
