I think that's effectively what I recently red in the Lyman book that was provided to me. "The grooves of Pre-Wolrd War II revolvers normally measure .454" in diameter. Later production revolvers and lever actions rifles are built with .451" diameter grooves."
However, in their testing data, they cite using a Hornady HP/XTP #45200, which if I look it up... specifies a diameter of .452 and is also jacketed...
The sierra JHP #8800, 185 gr specifies .4515
The 185 grain #8800 Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP) SportsMaster bullets were designed primarily for the 45 Caliber Automatic Colt Pistol (45 ACP) cartridge. This bullets has the Sierra's Power Jacket and the same hollow point design as Sierra's 9mm and 10mm JHP SportsMaster bullets. They are...www.sierrabullets.com
The speer JHP #4479, is listed at .451 even...
I don't want to blow anything up, but that would imply that you can use from .451 to .452 in a 'modern' rendition of .45 Colt.
Is this kind of leeway seem likely?
I called, but apparently they don't work on Sundays. I didn't realize it was Sunday, but now I do. I sent an e-mail. Will share what I hear. But if anybody knows for sure, don't hesitate to give a spoiler.
i live in the boonies , WV , we had a nice quiet stretch of road , they carted out a douche bag in a body bag two spreads over from a OD maybe 6 or 8 months agoBe careful Sir what you ask for, they're out there but the zombie apocalypse is actually the tweeker apocalypse.
I as an avid firearms enthusiast and weekly trip to either my range or the clubs, more of club as the town is expanding, I will keep my proficiency up with a couple mags, cylinders of .45 to begin, 1911 or SAA. Then I do not like to neglect any firearm as all have their defining characteristics. That is what makes it fun for me.What exactly is enough?
I hear you on the range thing , I dont care for them either , kinda has that going to the gym to work out vibe , I have 32 acres I've measured out to 200 yards to the tree line where I shoot and have a 200 foot mountain as a back drop , break of trees before that and a big brush pile directly behind my hillbilly target , aka cardboard box with a orange spray bomb dot or two on itAs far as ammo stockpile goes, I have lost count 3 years ago. I am old and arthritic. I detest lifting ammo cans, much less opening and
taking inventory. I just take what I need and shoot, which isn't much. I add a few more when cheap and let it go at that. You know how much
500rd lot of 308 weighs! So, I don't count no more. I detest going to crowded ranges for the same reason for everyone. I have enough of
the 308 FGM and 3006 Lake City to last. At least for a year, anyway.
