Default 20 Cal. 45-48gr. Bullet

I have a 10 twist 20cal. barrel coming. Planning to chamber it for a 204 Ruger. Who makes a good 45-48 grain bullet ?

Think you will find, the 204R does real well with 32-39 grain bullets.
Most 45 grain ones were intended more for the 22 hornets and such.

But if you want 45-48 grain ones look at Hammer bullets and some others, or the older Rem and Win 45 grn, if and when you can find them.

You might try getting in contact with Badger Bob. He makes a 20 cal 46.5gr RBBT.
Have used them in my 20 calibers, he says a 1-11 twist should handle them. My
barrels were all 1-10 twist.

There are Hornady 45 gr softpoints still around, I have picked up a couple boxes at gun shows. Bob has made me some great shooting bullets.
