    255 grn. to 250 grn.?

    my ruger new model blackhawk is set to 20 yards with a 255 grn. round. Will changing my round to a 250 grain affect accuracy by much?

    Not at 20 yards with a .44 magnum handgun, no.

    I would almost bet money that he/she is asking about a .45 long colt.
    I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do those things to other people and I require the same of them.

    well,,,

    when you change from 255 to 250grain at 20 yards,
    you probibly should send the gun back to the manufacturer to ,,,
    get the barrel re_courved for the new point of impact...
    A gun smith is not qualified to preform this super secret re_ curving of barrels.
    the point of aim must be done in a vapor chambor that only big manufacturers have acsess too..
    you will be enertained by the cost of re_courvering your barrel.

    lol lol lol

    No, your aim will affect accuracy.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    Put a laser on then bench fire at 20yds. Change to the 'lighter' round then do the same. Then dry fire without a bench and watch the laser dot. it's all on you not the factory boresighting thingy.
