View Full Version : 50-110 Winchester (Ruger)

Here is my Ruger #3 single shot 50-110 with very heavy barrel, #1 forend, straight butt stock.Nikon 4X scope....I shoot 524 gr lead flat tip bullets and Trail Boss..there was no load data for the 50 at the time so I used the formula in one of the major magazines (that can't be wrong???)..fill the case to the bottom of the bullet at the neck, weight the charge, compute 70% of that amount, reduce by additional 10% for safety sake..I use 17grs but could go to 19.0 if wanted..What a great rifle and caliber....:|

I don't see a pic, if you posted one, but have toyed with the idea of putting a 50-70 barrel on my #3.
Any mods to the receiver necessary? Guess a new extractor is in order.
