I have a Winchester Trapper carbine in .45 Colt. I would like to use it while stalking deer in the upstate. I’ve never hunted with this gun. I bought it new about 15 years ago for Cowboy Action but never used it. It’s really been a safe queen with an occasional range trip. I was looking at some Buffalo Bore 300 gr. flat point +P for hunting. Are these too hot for this gun? I know my Black Hawk can Handel them.

I found this. https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=38
These loads are also safe in all modern Model 1892 lever guns as well as all Winchester & Marlin 1894's. Please read the following linked technical article to know more about 1892s and all variants or copies of the 1892.

I have personally shot heavy loads in a Winchester Trapper (1892). My own loads were fairly close to 44 mag. The modern Winchester guns are plenty strong.
