Took this out for the first time. My daughter had purchased a Bersa Firestorm and wanted to shoot it. We went to A Place To Shoot owned by a good friend. She had the opportunity to try her gun, mine, a Beretta 87 and a Sig Sauer 232. That turned out to be very useful for her. She ended up liking her...

Re: A Right Decent Rossi 92 in 45 Colt

452 to 454. Heaviest load was 360 SWC at 1350 fps avg. Felt like shooting a shotgun.

Here is a picture I came across with some .44 data I was comparing one day. A B92 was involved. Only 50 yds though, these rifles cab be quite accurate with the right loads.
