Sighting in my Rossi 92 454 Casull

I had not got around to seriously trying to sight in this rifle since I bought it. It was shooting quite a bit to the left and was easy to center the hits using the stock buckhorn sights.
The problem has been trying to figure out the elevation using those sights. I think I got it now so it hits 3 inches low at 50 yards. Next I need to try it at 100 yards.

I zero my .44 magnum Rossi 92 trapper for 2 inches high at 50 yards with my loads. I only use the open sights for backup, my primary hunting sight is a Bushnell TRS 25 Red Dot. They make several types of scope rail for the 92 in case you didn't know about them.

This is consistent with where I have my Cassull set up. When I run .45LC its about 2" low but that's ok I can always bump it another notch.

Not as bad as you might think with such a light rifle. I reload using the minimum load (Hornady manual) with Win 296 and Hornady 240 gr. XTP Mag bullets.

I wouldn't want to try shooting with something like Buffalo Bore loads though. Yikes!

If you have a 454 Casull then you should shoot 454 Casull in it. I also have a 45 LC and that shoots pretty tamely compared to the Casull.
