Re: H&R springfield stalker .45 info needed.

I've heard really good things about these but haven't tried them yet:

These are also available and work in slower ball twist better depending on what that has:

Here's an additional design available still:

Unfortunately, the great plains bullet isn't available in .45 any more, so I've been researching for my 3 .45's.

The Model 175 Springfield Stalker was made 1972-79 in .45 and .58, they also made a Model 175DL 1974-79 with fancy walnut stock with high polish blue finish. I have no load data for that specific rifle, but would suggest using the load data in the .45, .58 Huntsman manual sticky in the Huntsman/Sidekick forum as Sprint suggested.

The H&R Springfield Stalker used the same bore and rifling specs as the original Huntsman series. The twist rate was optimized for the use of patched round balls and Minnies.

Look at the Huntsman Forum manual sticky and it gives you the correct projectiles to use.

Good should shoot well.
