Well after trying about everything imaginal in my Raging Bull I have not found anything that shoots poorly. 240 Xtp Mag Hornadys shot the worst and they were not real bad. I guess it's a toss up between 260 Partition Gold Factory loads and the 250 Barnes XPB's I loaded ,with 27.5 grians of H-110 . Both shoot 1 to 2 inch groups at 50 yards, consistantly. I took apart one of the factory loads and measured the charge it weighed 34.0 grains. Don't know for sure what Winchester uses for powder but I do know from experience they dam sure won't tell ya! So gonna give both bullets a try ,I used 300 XTP mag Hornadys last year an was not impressed with the expansion I got .But they were accurate and did work. Just hoping to open up a little bgger hole threw the ribs,I love a massive blood trail if needed to find the animal. Kinda hope I don't have to look very far .I just wanted to thank everyone for the comments and info. Shoot straight and keep the wind in your face , WildBill :D :D

I gots me a 6.5" Raging Bull and I love it. The only bullets I've tested for groups are the 240 XTP mag and a hard cast 340gr WFP. I've been using 35gr of 296 (1559 fps) for the XTP and 30gr of 296 (1534 fps) for the WFP. I'm getting good groups from the WFP, well good for me, (dang, I cain't even see a 2 inch target at 50 yards anymore much less hit it) I may put a scope on this RB for hunting. So far I think the .454 is the most accurate round I've ever shot. Even at over 100 yards it holds up well and nothing shoots bad.
